Use the hashtag Fall Festival 2017 on IG and you'll notice a whole lot going on but.... not all as cool as ours! Our Fall Festivities are always the kids favorite. It's a fun day for our Kingdom Kids to enjoy the night with their families. We invite them in advance to make sure they don't miss it.
Passersby who see us set-up stop and ask what's going on. FREE HOT DOGS AND A WHOLE LOT OF FUN!

During set-up Caleb, our Ministry Director, gathered our volunteers to pray for the night and to remind us why we do what we do. Reaching our community and gifting them with a good time. To remind them that we are here for the youth of Phx! This title could be 15th Annual Fall Festival or so...we lost count. Oops! You get the point! We are here!
Something cool is watching our teen volunteers that were actually a part of Kingdom Kids (was Kids Club) get involved in what they use to enjoy as young kids. They are growing into young adults before our eyes and in helping they get to see how important it is to reach out.
"My husband played a clown 14 years ago for Aim Right's Fall Festival, that's when I fell in love with him hahahaha!" - Delia C. jokes about her husband whom Aim Right helped mold him into the person he is today and which is still involved with Aim Right.

We are sending a very special THANK YOU to all our volunteers who took the time to come out and lend a helping hand. We appreciate you!!! 💛
Please enjoy our featured pictures of this years Fall Festival and may your day today be merry and very bright! 😄

Hiking the Grand Canyon

Hiking this massive canyon takes dedication. Caleb led his team of interns to hiking one of Phoenix's hardest mountains in preparation for the real deal. Carle and Kegan had the opportunity to do so. Our amazing interns are given the chance to remove this off their bucket list! Here's a brief description in the eyes of Carle: 

"When I found out Caleb was going to plan a trip to hike the Grand Canyon, I was all in. It seemed like such an excitement!! I knew it was a once in a life time chance, so I signed up to go along with one of the other interns, Kegan. We trained for about a month before hand. We went every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings. We would meet up at 5:00 am and hike Squaw Peak Mountain. It was definitely a challenge. We kept trying to push ourselves on our time. By the end of our training we had made our goal! We were ready to hike the Grand Canyon! We drove up Monday and stayed in the campground. Tuesday morning we got up at 5:30 and started our 17 mile hike throughout the canyon. If any of you ever have the chance to go, do it!  I will never regret going. We had to carry all of our water and food. Luckily there were watering stations along the way so we could fill up when needed. Most of our food consisted of crackers, beef jerky, uncrustables, and granola bars. We would stop when arriving to a watering station so we could eat, use the bathroom and rest a bit. It was a challenge by the end. My legs were sore for the last 5 miles of the hike. Luckily Caleb had brought along some of his hiking sticks and those helped me a lot. We just kept going at a slow steady pace and would take breaks as needed. Step by step we made it out of the canyon in 9 hours and 15 min! I was ready for a shower and a nap by that time. It was so nice to be able to sit back and relax after the long day. We spent the night again at the campground before heading off that Wednesday. I was so glad I had brought my camera along. I was able to take lots of pictures from our trip. Take a look at some of the beautiful places we saw."

What a fun trip!!!
