New ropes course opens at Rock Springs Ranch
Rock Springs Ranch kicked off a new Leadership Adventure Course at an inaugural celebration surrounded by young leaders and donors last week.
The course is a team obstacle course with two levels of high ropes, low elements and a zipline in duel.
The total fundraising goal for the course was $ 285,000. Philanthropic donations and a youth-led fundraising effort, Endorse the Course, for 4-H clubs in Kansas helped fund the project. Kansas 4-H donors Lee and Jackie Borck of Manhattan contributed the main donation of $ 150,000 towards the construction of the course.
Kansas 4-H said $ 25,000 from the Borcks’ donation was designated as matching funds to double the impact of the youth-led Endorse the Course challenge.
The Kansas 4-H Youth Leadership Council led the youth fundraising effort and encouraged all Kansas 4-H clubs to donate towards their collective goal of $ 25,000 towards building the course.
The Kansas 4-H clubs exceeded the target and contributed $ 28,475 for a total of over $ 53,000 with the Borcks’ matching funds.
