HIKE FOR HOPE 2020 CHALLENGE
WEEKEND OF OCTOBER 23 – 25
Lazarus House has transformed their annual HIKE for HOPE into a 2020 Challenge, a community-focused and virtual event, while staying physically engaged and socially responsible! Lazarus House has programs for people who are homeless or who have low income by offering emergency shelter, food and clothing to people in crisis and then providing transitional housing, advocacy, education and work preparation. This Year’s Virtual Challenge will allow Lazarus House to make renovations to their Soup Kitchen, and monies raised will help them to continue to meet the needs of the increasing number of Guests who find themselves without meals to eat and food to put on the table for their families.
Register and you will receive access to all the HIKE for HOPE activities, plus we will mail you a HIKE for HOPE mask. Registration is $15. Pick challenges that match your experience level - 5K. Jump. Food. Fund. Do all of them and Complete the Challenge! You can post photos, videos, share your Challenge journey and fundraise to support Lazarus House Ministries.
The Challenge Activities
On Saturday, October 24 at 10:00a.m., Walk or Run LIVE with us using the Charge Running App. Choose your course or use your treadmill, while receiving encouragement from a running coach and inspiration from the Lazarus House Community. Chat with others via the chat room, track your status, and listen to a real-time playlist curated for you!
It’s no secret that jumping rope is an effective workout for torching excess weight and toning arms, abs and legs. Participants will receive virtual access to a 30-minute jumping rope class taught by various instructors at our participating Studios during the weekend. Get ready to blast those calories. No rope? No Problem! You can jump, rope free (best for beginners).
Help us feed and continue to meet the needs of individuals and families struggling with food insecurity. Collect and drop off non-perishable items (list provided in App) to replenish our food supply ahead of our busiest season.
Be a fundraiser for Lazarus House and help us meet the increasing need for warm, nutritious meals in our Soup Kitchen. Inspire at least five people to donate $20.20 each. It's easy to create a fundraising page and even easier for your network to make donations.
