The Blue Ridge Relay Fundraiser, 2022

The Blue Ridge Relay (BRR) is one of the longest running relay races in the United States, taking place in the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and North Carolina. This year, People Launching will be entering two teams: a team of 12 and a team of 6 that will each cover approximately 208 miles.

In 2021, People Launching entered our first ever team and placed 25th out of 173 teams! The best part: not only did we have even more fun that we anticipated, but we far surpassed our fundraising goal in the process! So we're back for 2022, and this time, we are entering two teams, with the goal of raising $20,000. 


By sponsoring a member of the People Launching BRR team, you are also partnering with People Launching as a fundraiser to the missionaries and church planters that are low on resources but high on need. Thank you for partnering with us!
