If you’ve raced with DelMoSports in the past, you have experienced the incredible finish line energy from Mt. Zion Youth Ministries.
We asked Director Annie Farrow why her team of volunteers keeps coming back year after year. Here’s what she shared with us.
There are several reasons our organization chooses to maintain its relationship with DelMoSports. We believe it is important that we guide and facilitate our youth’s growth as honest, law-abiding, giving, tenacious, respectful citizens. And despite what appears to be the societal norm to be less neighborly, less involved with the community and more self-serving and entitled, in our small way we feel the need to challenge this way of thinking.
Through the wonderful privilege of volunteering at DelMoSports events, our endeavors have been synergized!
Our youth group repeatedly expresses their “take-away” from the events as “we can do anything if we stay determined to achieve the goal.” This is in response to them witnessing amazing athletes with physical challenges and of every shape and age crossing over the finish-line.
Lastly, I as one of the leaders of our mission, humbly note that because I believe in being an example, I ran my first half marathon in the Wild-Half event… my first ever! And I could not have been prouder as I was cheered on by our youth group just as enthusiastically as they encouraged all other participants. Also Gary Farrow Jr. participated and completed his first ever race, ever! Escape the Cape! Again, this was to hopefully stimulate in our youth lessons of commitment, determination, and supporting others along their journey.
DelMoSports, please know that we are extremely grateful for the graciousness of your organization to our youth group! You all have been monumental for our youth character-building principles, and supporting their winter activities and fundraising goals through the volunteer donations received.
If you are looking to in someway give-back to your community, or add few dollars to your fund, or even experience a race “behind the scenes,” DelMoSports provides and fosters the environment to afford complete satisfaction of fulfilling those desires. And the amazing thing is that if your organization, youth group, team, or club commits to volunteering in the name of giving, you will in fact receive! And, yes, DelMoSports does give a donation for your volunteer services and many other perks as well! Please don’t just take our word for it. Sign up to volunteer and experience the exhilaration of being a valuable, memorable part of helping others reach their goals, while perhaps fulfilling a few or your own!
