BENEFITING: GIRLS INCORPORATED OF DELAWARE
EVENT DATE: Apr 30, 2016
I'm walking in the Charity Challenge to raise money for Girls Inc. of Delaware. I recently joined the Board of Directors and appreciate your support of this worthy organization.
Girls Incorporated of Delaware is a statewide nonprofit organization whose mission is, "to inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold." Girls Inc. of Delaware is an affiliate of Girls Inc. which was founded in New England in 1864. Formerly the Girls Clubs of America, nationally Girls Inc. serves more than 138,000 girls across the United States and in Canada.
At Girls Inc., girls learn to set and achieve goals, boldly confront challenges, resist peer pressure, see college as attainable, and explore nontraditional fields such as Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Informed by the experiences of girls and their families, Girls Inc. works with policymakers to advocate on key legislation and initiatives.
The 2nd Annual Delaware Charity Challenge Race to First 5K and Adventure Challenge Relay will take place Saturday, April 30, 2016 at Brandywine Creek State Park in Wilmington, Delaware. The Spring Race to Raise will run from February 1, 2016 until 11:59 p.m. on April 29, 2016.
Last year, teams raised more than $32,000 for different area nonprofits as part of the 1st Annual Delaware Charity Challenge 5K and Spring Race to Raise! We hope that our teams are able to raise even more this year!
The Delaware Charity Challenge is a unique fundraising and athletic competition designed to give organizations, families, and individuals a fun way to raise money and awareness for their favorite causes.
Through the teams and the event itself, families, individuals, as well as private, public, and nonprofit organizations have the opportunity to raise money and awareness for their favorite cause. Leading up to the event, teams will race to raise the most money for the charity of their choice. The charities that raise the most money will win additional prize money for their charity. On the day of the Delaware Charity Challenge, teams will race to win, and the winning teams will win additional money for their selected charities. Nonprofits are encouraged to build and promote their own teams and compete in one or more of the Delaware Charity Challenge events.
The Delaware Charity Challenge is the area's premier race to raise event of its kind. Check out www.delawarecharitychallenge.com for more information. The Spring Race to Raise fundraising competition runs from February 1, 2016 to April 29, 2016. Sign up today!
