Covid Challenge

The COVID CHALLENGE is a virtual exercise event during the month of September 2020. It’s designed to encourage people to exercise and, at the same time, help raise funds for several outstanding charities working in our community. You’re invited to register online, set your goals, and record your progress along with friends and families without participating in a large gathering. You can record your steps, share your bike tours, and record your runs as part of the challenge. We’ll be supporting you all the way with updates, stories, and friendly competition.
