Race to 2025
Ndop Cluster project: Cameroon, Africa
Extreme adventure with eternal impact: it could change your life! Are you willing to take the risk?
Wycliffe Bible Translators has a vision: “To see Bible translation in progress, in every language that needs it, by the year 2025.” Since 2007, Wycliffe's Race to 2025 has helped 595 young Canadians embrace that vision by helping to raise in excess of $692,500 for Bible translation and related ministries in Africa, Asia and North and South America. These adventure fundraising events, held annually in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, bridge the adrenalin rush of adventure sport young Canadians crave and the extreme adventure to which Jesus calls His Church—to make disciples of all nations.

Classic Two-Day Mountain Adventure Challenge (Intermediate fitness level required.)
Join us in ending Bible poverty for 240,000 minority language speakers in the Ndop Plain in Cameroon.
In partnership with Wycliffe Canada, indigenous groups are working to translate the New Testament into nine related Ndop languages and share the gospel through text, film and media. They are seeing the Word drastically change lives, turning fear into hope.
“When I first heard the Word of God in Chrambo, my language, I was amazed . . . it was like a dream. I learned that I can’t hate those that burned my village to the ground and not forgive them, because I would want people to forgive me.” - a Cameroonian woman whose village was destroyed in a tribal conflict.
“You’ll get to immerse yourself in a world of adventure that will get you thinking beyond yourself and beyond your borders. It has the potential to impact you and others and for eternity.” - Matthew Blacklock, past race participant
Join us February 16-18, 2018 to raise funds so the people of Cameroon's Ndop Plain can hear and read God's Word in their heart language.
Our goal is to raise $42,000. The minimum is $24,000.
