This half weekend Race for Possible event is hosted by Expeditions Unlimited on the edge of Devil’s Lake State Park near Baraboo, Wisconsin. Your team will paddle the waters of Devil’s Lake, scale the amazing rock formations in the park, be challenged by a high ropes course, and hike the rugged Wisconsin terrain.
Each team requires four people. However, if you do not have a team of four, register anyway and we will combine you with others to complete a full team.
Race Cost—$149 (includes all lodging costs, 4 meals, and race elements/equipment).
Fundraising — Racers raise funds for a specific project to make Bible translation possible. The Wisconsin Race for Possible raises funds to help JAARS send motorbikes and train national translators in motorbike safety. Learn about how motorbikes for national translators contributes to the process of making Bible translation possible.
