BELIEVE IT

Big vision indeed, we are humbled by all God is doing in, and through, 12th Rock this Spring/Summer because of YOUR support.. Over the past few years, our programs have impacted 3,000+ people annually. This year we are on track to impact over 4,000. How? In addition to our regular programming and events, this year 12th Rock is hosting the modified championships cross-country race for the OCIAA. There will be 20 teams from area public schools represented at this race. We are also working on hosting an invitational as well. These races are the foundation for the future of events that will be hosted on a regular basis at the future home of 12th Rock HERE.

Take a look at all the exciting things God has been up to, and how you might be able to help us continue to impact more kids, and their families, this year:
