Help Mike Swim for a Truck!

The Problem:
Dickey Lake Bible Camp is a place where young people are cared for, developed, and experience the love of God. It is a bustle of noise and fun all summer long. Mike Turner was volunteering last summer when he was struck by the rough state of the camp truck. Before making a garbage run, he was told not to worry, someone would come for him if the camp truck broke down! Mike saw the need for camp staff to have a reliable vehicle in northern Montana.

The Plan:
Mike wanted to help. After a series of medical ailments that didn’t allow him to run, Mike began Aqua Jogging (Water running with floats). While spending hours in the water he began to think of ways to use the activity to raise awareness. His gung-ho attitude and large personality said it would have to be something big! Mike decided to aqua jog the length of Hungry Horse Reservoir near Columbia Falls, MT raising funds for the camp to purchase a truck. The route across the reservoir is 40 miles. Starting July 12th, Mike plans to aqua jog about six hours a day and complete the task by July 27th. The undertaking is huge. The man is kind of crazy. His heart is golden.

Your Part:
The goal is $30,000. The swim is 40 miles. Would you come be a part in supporting his efforts and donate to raise money for a much needed camp truck?

Please consider sharing to bring awareness and support!

If this goal is reached, Mike would like to send any overflow money to a grass roots group that provides food and serves the Tarahumara people in the Copper Canyon, a remote region of Chihuahua, Mexico.
