Deer Run has several annual events to raise funds for our MISSION 42:1 Scholarship Fund which provides for families in need of financial assistance. Our goal is to ensure that no one is ever turned away because of an inability to pay.

In 2017, 347 scholarships were awarded to children from 242 families in need.

By participating in one of our fundraising events you not only have fun but provide an experience that will most likely change a person’s life and path for the future — and many times have eternal impact.

2018 Date: TBD


TAX-DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS ONLY. NO REGISTRATION FEE. There is no registration fee for the ride, but we ask that you bring your 100% tax-deductible donation for the CAMPER SCHOLARSHIP FUND TO HELP KIDS IN NEED. In 2017, 347 scholarships were awarded to children from 242 families in need. Qualified applicants were from local families and organizations like A Soldier’s Child, the Nashville Rescue Mission, Safe Haven Family Shelter and Boys & Girls Clubs. Help us share the love of Christ with these kids and provide a positive environment for them to learn about trust, respect, confidence, character and leadership!

POKER RUN (optional), $10 per person (morning & afternoon riders): Participants draw playing cards at the beginning and end of the ride plus at the fuel stop. A prize is given to the winner after the judges score all cards. Poker hands are scored using standard poker hand rankings.

RALLY SHIRT: Purchase for $15 while at Deer Run. Sales benefit the Camper Scholarship Fund.
