Run & Swim Your Way to a Better Conference!

The Pacific Northwest Annual Conference is moving forward in many exciting ways! Together we are planting new faith communities and tackling global health issues that have been around for too long. The opportunities on this page highlight fun ways to get behind our Ministry Fund Drive goals of supporting new faith communities and contributing 500k to Imagine No Malaria.

We have a lot of good to do in the world together! We hope you will consider participating in some way, or supporting someone else who can.

Imagine No Malaria 5K Fun Run (and Stroll)

Celebrate our efforts to end the threat of Malaria with our Imagine No Malaria 5K Fun Run (and Stroll).  All ages and abilities are invited to run and walk our easy 5K course.  All registration costs will go to our Pacific Northwest United Methodist Church’s goal of raising $500,000 for Imagine No Malaria.

Challenge your friends, family and churches to join in the run themselves, or support your run with donations, cheers, and prayers.  Everyone who participates will get the satisfaction of helping defeat malaria and a t-shirt. A pledge form is available to use if you find that to be helpful. DOWNLOAD the pledge form.

You don’t need to be a member or participant at PNWUMC Annual Conference to participate in the run.  Simply register here for the run itself.  If you are a PNWUMC Annual Conference member or participant, you will also need to register here for the run.

If you’d like to volunteer to help with with the registration table, water stops, first aid center, or cheer squad, contact Curtis Brown. .

During Annual Conference, look for the swim station where you can take a virtual ocean dip, compete for prizes, and join the Tuell Center Swim-a-thon. The Board of Pensions will match every dollar you raise in self-propelled water-related activities between annual conference and August 31.Lap swims, Marco Polo games, water aerobics, lake swims or even trips to the water park will convert to dollars for leadership. Gather pledges, enlist your congregation to participate and don’t forget the youth!
