The Ultimate Fan Challenge
A call to action via fundraising uniting sports fans in support of a common goal, to give play and activity to isolated kids with weak immune systems of the Children’s Healing Center, a 501(c)3 non profit (CHC). All donations are tax deductible.
The goal: to determine who is the biggest FAN by supporting the fan base of choice
The action: 100% of the monetary donations will aid in the ongoing programming and offsetting costs for family membership. You'll be contributing to overall sustainability of the local non-profit Children’s Healing Center of Grand Rapids (watch video for more information about the CHC).
The inspiration: the fight of brave pediatric cancer warriors everywhere including Dawson Babiak, a 5 yr old Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia cancer warrior and local Spartan fan. An initial donation to the Children's Healing Center from the Grand Rapids University of Michigan Alumni in memory of Chad Carr motivated Dawson's parents, Jason and Alison Babiak, to encourage the Spartan community to step up and match the generous gift. Helping others in mind, and the aid of supporters of all ages, the Ultimate Fan CHALLENGE was born.
The hope: Spreading generosity to support children with weak immune systems, by giving them the opportunity for social and emotional healing in a safe and clean environment at the Children’s Healing Center.
