I love seeing the Minneapolis adventurers and thrill-seekers test their guts! Skydiving this weekend will be a first for many attending, and though the nerves are building up, the fear of heights, or maybe just the fact of jumping out of a plane, or just the thought of the ride up knowing what you have to do next! And in a week or so, we will be taking a high rope Trapeze lesson… again, jumping off a perfectly good platform, hanging on for dear life to a bar attached by two wires to the ceiling, then swinging and flipping and eventually completing a transfer from one bar to another! Why do we do these things? To test our will? To overcome some fears? To check something off of our bucket list? Well, I say ALL OF THE ABOVE! These are things that we will never forget and that is the opportunity we have by being a part of Events & Adventures!

Events and Adventures Volunteers Spend a Day Building at Twin Cities Habitat’s First Ever Net-Zero Energy Home…
Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity invites a wide array of volunteer groups to help build community at Habitat build sites. Be it a group of co-workers, members of the same faith community, or even a family and friends celebrating a birthday together, there are few better ways to spend a day together than making a difference in the life of a well-deserving family.
On Saturday, November 9th, we Events & Adventures volunteers helped put the finishing touches on Twin Cities Habitat’s first ever net-zero energy home. This unique home will have solar panels for generating electricity and hot water. It will be the most efficient home Twin Cities Habitat has ever built. The family that is buying it is getting special training on all of the home’s green features. By the day’s end, our team of 8 Events & Adventures members equally agreed that “when you give to others, everyone wins!”
This is one of the charities that we volunteer with and what’s great about these events is that it’s a 2-4-1… you get to meet new people AND help out a family in need! There is always an opportunity with E&A!
