Our Challenge. Their Freedom. Calling all women! We will partner with The Freedom Challenge to raise funds and awareness for those impacted by human trafficking and support Grace’s ministry in Guatemala. Join us as we take on the physical challenge of hiking the Acatenango volcano in Guatemala and the fundraising challenge of $3000 that will help enslaved women on the path to freedom. We will also spend a day delivering food packages to Guatemalan families in need. Sign-up today and ask a friend, sister, daughter, or mother to join you and train for the challenge and raise funds and awareness together!


  • What if I am not a “hiker”?
    • We will hike a pace that accommodates the slowest team members. This is about pushing ourselves physically and encouraging each other along the way! You can do this!
  • How much money do I have to raise? 
    • The fundraising challenge is $3000 per person, plus travel expenses.  We REALLY encourage you to grab your daughter, a friend, a mother, or a sister to join you.
