OCTOBER 27-28, 2023
BLAST! takes the common and makes it extraordinary. A dollar becomes an offering, a trail becomes a journey and a person becomes a friend. Donors and hikers of all ages and walks of life team up every November to start what they think is a hike-a-thon. What they find along the way is camaraderie, forged through 24-hours of hiking, fun, and endurance. Join BLAST! and help a camp you love. Send that love now with a general donation, or sponsor a hiker per mile.
BLAST! is a 24-hour hikeathon (hiking endurance event) fundraiser. The objective is to fundraise for a camp that you love, while also experiencing the fellowship, challenge and rest that have always surrounded the hikeathon. Discovery Ministries has held BLAST! annually since 2010.
Discovery Ministries welcomes hikers of all fitness levels to participate. Set a distance goal and raise a specific amount that people will support you at per mile. Challenge yourself to hike that distance!
