2017 Move for Man Up Recap

Recently Man Up held its 4th Annual Move for Man Up event in Springfield, MO. The fundraising event was once again held at the Randy Bacon Photography Studio, and we had a wonderful time with friends and Champions of the ministry.

This year was unique because it coincided with the annual meeting for the Board of Directors, so 10 of the 13 Board Members were able to attend, flying/driving in from Florida, Texas, Iowa, and Illinois to take part in the festivities.

Not only were we able to set a record for fundraising (over $18,000!) for this event, but both the folks in Springfield and our Board Members were able to see the breadth and national scope of the ministry. This was worth its weight in gold.

We had several sponsors who helped make the evening a success, but we want to especially thank our Title Sponsor, The Eck Group, for their continued support of our ministry (see all sponsors on our event flyer below). There was also the fabulous Shaun Munday, guitarist extraordinaire, for coming in for the third year in a row and once again knocking it out of the park.

In all, it was a fun, fantastic night, filled with lots of laughter, friends, and good food. We’re grateful for every single person who donated, came in support, financially backed (in-kind or otherwise), or volunteered their time to make this a truly wonderful night. Thank you again, and we pray God continues to allow us to do this important work of fighting for the fatherless!
