Fundraising Challenges

Don’t forget that the Final Countdown starts today! All runners who receive one gift of ANY amount, will be entered into a chance drawing to win some Stepping Strong swag! We’ll be picking 5 winners who will be announced on 10/13!

The teammate who raises the MOST money and the teammate who receives the MOST donations between The Final Countdown (Oct.6 – Oct. 11) will receive an autographed Jason Tatum Celtics jersey OR an autographed Celtics team basketball! The teammate who raises the most money gets to pick the autographed item they want.
