The 3000-12 Blue Challenge is a invitation and challenge for boys and young men (primarily ages 8 to 30, but open to anyone else who wants to sign up) to do 3000 pushups and memorize 12 Bible verses while getting people to sponsor them to help raise money to build Deerfoot Lodge Blue Ridge.
As we reflect on culture today, we see that many boys and young men are in trouble. They are declining in school, at home, in the church and elsewhere. Men are struggling and boys are failing to launch. Deerfoot has always been a place where boys and young men learn how to be strong leaders, responsible citizens and men of faith and character. It is a life-changing place where boys and young men are at their best. However, every summer, for over the last 10 years, Deerfoot has been turning away campers because we are at capacity. We simply don’t have enough space. Following God’s leading, Deerfoot purchased an undeveloped property in North Carolina, in the Blue Ridge Mountains, to start another camp. But, because the land is undeveloped, we cannot start camp. Without your help to raise money to build Deerfoot Blue Ridge, these boys won’t get a chance to experience the life change that happens at camp. The good news is that we have an opportunity for you to be involved. The 3000-12 Blue Challenge is a way to connect with old friends from DL as well as raise money to build Deerfoot Blue Ridge and give more boys this life-changing experience at Deerfoot.
Deerfoot believes that everyone is worth reaching out to and that everyone has something to offer. From the youngest to the oldest, no matter where life has taken you, Deerfoot believes you have high value (as our God does) and we have created this opportunity for all to be involved. We want to build Deerfoot Blue Ridge as a community, we want to have common ownership in what is happening.
