Description

Sheepdog Connection was established to honor the life of Ryan FitzGerald - We lovingly called Ryan a “sheepdog” because he had an attitude of service above self, he was intensely loyal,  and he protected, supported and encouraged people around him.

We provide opportunities through our partner organizations for young men to experience the trips that helped to form who Ryan was as a young man and a Sheepdog.  It’s our hope that through these experiential trips more young men will be motivated to become Sheepdogs and have a positive, lasting impact in their families, schools and community.  Our partners include:

  • Christ in the Rockies, a Father-Son passage to manhood camp in Colorado
  • Christ in the Smokies, a Father-Son passage to manhood camp in Highlands Ranch NC
  • Hands of Love USA - Two week summer mission trip to 2 orphanages in Uganda
  • North Point Ministries - GlobalX - Two week mission trip to establish the new leaders in Uganda through the creation of soccer camps
  • Lambert High School - Annual $1,000 Sheepdog of the Year scholarship awarded to a graduating senior from Lambert High School

The Sheepdog Scamper & Sprint has been established to create awareness of the need for young men to learn what it means to be a man in today's world.  The experiential trips young men can participate in provide first hand opportunities to learn the key attributes of service to others, loyalty, dependability and more.  To learn more about Sheepdog Connection, please visit www.sheepdogconnection.org 

We are looking for individual runners, families, church groups, running associations, middle/high school track and cross country teams to participate.  We also encourage corporations to join us in a community building event, contribute to their employees health and support the growth of Sheepdog Connection.
