Looking to shed a few pounds before the holidays? Want to virtually travel to Sierra Leone? Join our virtual fitness challenge!
We at HCW want to say a hearty thank you to all of you who have already participated or donated to the Road to Mercy Hospital Virtual Fitness Challenge. So far, we have raised over $3,200 to support HCW’s global health programs. However, the challenge is not over yet!
The Road to Mercy Hospital ends October 31st, but you can still walk, run, jog, paddle, and swim your way to Samie Village or Freetown through November and December. If you or a friend are interested in joining us, then it is not too late to sign up! Every registration makes a difference around the world in addressing the deadly conditions like malnutrition and malaria that impact vulnerable children and families around the world.
Every person who completes the challenge will receive a woodcarving carved by a Sierra Leone artist, and there are additional prizes for the person who finishes first, raises the most money, and refers the most people. Beyond taking action by running, walking, biking, etc in this challenge, we hope that you will set up a fundraising page and ask others to donate towards your progress in this challenge. If you can raise an additional $50 towards our cause, we can do more for children and families worldwide.
This fundraiser is put on as the Director’s Invitational 1st Annual Fitness Challenge. Therefore, this fundraiser is dedicated in honor of Jamie Beletz. Jamie was the husband of Executive Director Melody Curtiss. A father, grandfather, and powerful activist in the community, Jamie passed away from COVID-19 in December of 2020.
Please help us reach our goal of 100 participants by December!
