Help Us Break the Record for the World's Largest Squirt Gun Fight
5 Events. 2 Days. 1 Mission.
Thousands will gather this August to attempt to break a world record for a life-saving cause. The 2-day extravaganza benefits 4US, a charity that raises money and illuminates hope for those facing unexpected pregnancy. A total of 5 featured events will culminate on August 13 in the World's Largest Squirt Gun Fight! 100% of the proceeds from all 5 events will go to purchase ultrasound machines for crisis pregnancy centers throughout the United States. The events kickoff with a Friday night Luma Glow Fun Run and Family Fun Festival. Saturday's events include Run 4US 5K-10K-half marathon races and walks, Ride 4US bike rides, a Roll 4US Motorcycle Rally and of course the World's Largest Squirt Gun Fight. The event costs just $5 per person & includes a commemorative squirt gun! Register TODAY --> http://4us.org/worlds-
"The tension builds as two enormous armies equipped with super soakers line up to face each other on a massive field. They stand in front of 24 pools filled with over 50,000 gallons of cool water," Founder Diego Wendt describes the anticipation. "It's fun for all ages and abilities; we've had folks with walkers and wheelchairs battle -- and it's all for a great cause that will make the record books! An ominous drum beats to announce the final countdown and then with the blast of a cannon, you are immersed in 10 minutes of hilarious, wet, music-filled chaos. This is the most fun event you will do with your friends & family this summer. Don't believe me? Look at the smiles on everyone's faces on our website."
There are designated "lanes of fire" for "L'il Squirts" (kids ages 5 & under) and "Slow-movers" (those who may need a little more time to get to the battle line).
Upon seeing her baby on a 4US provided ultrasound machine, and assured of long-lasting support from the staff in a pregnancy resource center, 965 of women chose life. For every ultrasound machine donated- 1,000 lives are saved. That is the hope upon which 4US is founded. In fact, every year since 2005, 4US has delivered machines and training to centers throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
With 5 Events, in 2 Days- the weekend is extremely impact-full for families and individuals alike. To learn more about the mission click here.
In 2004 Diego and Kim Wendt founded 4US, an all-volunteer charity, to raise money to purchase ultrasound machines that provide entirely free care for women in crisis pregnancies. Since 2005, Diego and Kim have been running this 100% volunteer organization based on the 4 pillars of their charity- Mission, Machines, Money and Movement.
