The Story

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Oct 14, 2017

FUNDRAISER SET UP DEADLINE: Oct 14, 2017

Who says you can’t have fun while raising money?? The 80 Days to 80K fundraiser challenges you to embark on an awesome adventure AND create scholarships for young United Methodists to attend the 2018 Global Young People’s Convocation in Johannesburg, South Africa!

What is the Global Young People’s Convocation (GYPC)?

Every four years, nearly 350 young people from around the world come together for a time of worship, fellowship, leadership development, and conversations about pressing issues and challenges young people are facing. In July 16-22, 2018, young people from different social, economic, cultural, political, and even theological backgrounds will come together in Johannesburg, South Africa to share their stories with one another.

Any donation given to GYPC helps bring together the voices of young people from around the world, as all gifts are used as scholarships for those who could not attend without this support.

The 80 Days to 80K Fundraising Challenge

To join, just think of something you'd love to do and create a goal around it. Dancing, cooking, biking--you name it, and we're excited about it! Although not required, you're encouraged to incorporate the number 80 into your goal. For instance, you can commit to skateboarding for 80 kilometers or aim to receive 80 donations. However, you do not have to raise funds for the entire 80 days; you can set your goal for an amount of time within the 80 days from now until October 14th. 

The challenge will culminate with a big 80s Party in Nashville, Tennessee and various other cities around the world on October 14th. You're invited to attend or host your own 80s party!
