What's the Ruckus?
Refuge Ruckus is a weekend-long event hosted by Refuge Medical and Grindstone Ministries. Its purpose is to raise funds for Kaleb House, a facility that restores trafficked children. On Day 1, vendors will be present while guest speakers host classes that range from homesteading to tactical prepping. Day 2 is reserved for fellowship and group Bible study. On Day 3, we will participate in a 5k ruck to raise awareness for Kaleb House and child trafficking. The event will culminate with an awards ceremony and an after-party.
We are excited to announce an incredible lineup of speakers that will cover a variety of topics. It is our goal to provide pertinent, educational, and impactful information to attendees. More speakers will be announced as we get closer to the Ruckus.
