Join us April 27th & 28th for our 3rd annual 30 Hour Famine Event in collaboration with multiple area youth groups. This year, Oneonta will be hosting!
WHAT: a challenging but exciting event designed to raise awareness and funds to fight world hunger (many but not all of the participating students will fast from food for 30 hours).
WHY: 1 out of 9 people in the world don’t have enough to eat. These people are important to God and they should be important to us as well*
WHEN/WHERE: Friday, April 27th from 7p to 8p Saturday, April 28th (this is an overnight event) at Oneonta Church
COST: Free, though we encourage you to help us reach our goal of raising $10,000 for the hungry and needy… maybe that includes a personal donation (up to you)
What if I can’t/don’t want to participate in the whole event… or the fasting?
We strongly encourage you to take the challenge and join us for the entire event. To date, we have never had a student tell us they regretted doing so. However, if you are not able to join us for the entire event, you may make special arrangements to attend when you can. You may also elect not to fast, but food will not be consumed at the event (just water and juice) so if you aren’t going to fast, you should make special arrangements to leave the campus and eat (for example, after the Friday night session or the Saturday morning service project).
A sign up form is attached. Parental consent is required for minors. Please feel free to direct questions to Justin Berkobien or Sara Lawson.
