Church Olympics and Family Fest

Stairstep Foundation has launched 2017 MOVING By Faith Church Olympics and Family Fest.

This year, let's put on our best Walking Shoes and join the "Long Walk to Freedom" from Minneapolis to Canada. The walk from Minneapolis, Minnesota to Ontario, Canada is 1,687 miles/3,374,000 steps.

Fellowship: together, we can do this.

Last year we had teams and we almost walked 1,500 miles. One mile is 2000 steps and most of us take on 3-5 miles a day. We can start counting beginning the month of June to July 15th and compete with ten other Missionary Baptist churches.

In addition to Moving by Faith, 3-on-3 youth/men/women Basketball team Olympics, children/ youth track/adult Hula Hoop events are part of the Family Fest.

July 15th is the Saturday events and awards. FMBC won youth/men Basketball awards the first year! See Nurse Beverly Propes for team registration information -- Let's win an award this year! Remember Walking empowers the Brain, the Heart and reduces fat!!!
