Turtle Race Fundraiser

The 13th Annual Turtle Race was held September 30, 2016 at the Arizona Grand Resort!

What is the Turtle Race?

One of the key fundraising events at Bethany Christian School is our Annual Turtle Race which takes place at the Oasis Water Park at the Arizona Grand Resort. A torrent of plastic turtles will race down the treacherous waters of the Lazy River aiming to be the top finisher. The highlights of the evening include both corporate and individual turtle races, music, entertainment, outstanding food and beverage, and full access to the Oasis Water Park. This amazing event is an evening of family, fun and fellowship enjoyed by all.

Is the Turtle Race open to the public?

The Turtle Race is a private event open exclusively to our BCS families. However, all winners will be contacted after the race regardless of their attendance at the event.
