Children attending Vacation Bible School at Seven Oaks Presbyterian Church held a hop-a-thon, Friday morning, to raise money to send a child to MDA Camp, Muscular Dystrophy Association Camp.
For a week, participants at VBS asked friends and family, canvassed their neighborhoods and performed extra chores to raise the money.
The students raised $311 of the $800 required but the church will supplement the rest. The children are asked to choose one project they wish to support during their week at VBS. "It's always something that the children are invested in themselves," says Becky Shumpert, Director of Children Ministries and Outreach for Seven Oaks.
Vacation bible school volunteer, Christal McTeer, cheers on one of the last children to finish the hop-a-thon race.
