Team Challenge

In the spirit of ‘sweat equity’ and “everyone works, everyone benefits” we have introduced the TEAM CHALLENGE! Team Members can complete tasks to earn points. Teams and walkers with the most points and funds raised by June 23rd will earn a cut of the community “pot” applied to the final Team fundraising total. New this year are top participant bonuses! All Walkers who raise at least $100 will have their first $100 matched from the Team Challenge Pot! The top 3 walkers and the top 3 teams who raise the most money overall will also win a cut of the pot for their Team! See the list of eligible tasks below and keep an eye on the Walk website to see the running total of the pot as it grows through June 23rd and an up-to-date list of ways to earn points!

How Team Challenge Works

1) The dollars that Sponsors contribute are put into a community “pot”
2) Registered Teams mobilize their members to complete tasks to earn team challenge points
3) Teams with the most points on June 23rd at 3p will earn a cut of the “pot” added to their final fundraising total
