RACE TO 2025
The adventure race with eternal impact
Wycliffe Bible Translators has a vision to see Bible translation in progress in every language that needs it by the year 2025. You can help make “Vision 2025” a reality for more than 1,600 language groups still waiting for Scripture in their mother tongue.
Since 2007, nearly 700 young adults have embraced the vision through Race to 2025, an adventure fundraising event for young adults held annually in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta. So far, participants have helped raise more than $700,000 to further Bible translation efforts around the world.
You and your team of four can compete in this high impact race! Team members commit to raise a minimum of $2,000 ($500/racer) for a Bible translation project in need.
Together, you’ll embark on a two-day extreme-sport challenge that includes ice climbing, snowshoeing and more.
How will you learn and grow?
As part of the event, you’ll learn more about Bible translation as well as some of the challenges faced by translators. The weekend program also includes:
- a brief introduction to linguistics and translation
- an opportunity to visit a simulated ethnic “village” where no English is spoken
- solving a linguistic challenge with your teammates
Ultimately, you’ll grow in your understanding of the Bible translation process and discover other ways you can be involved in sharing God’s Word with Bibleless peoples worldwide.
