Here’s how it works:
– Tickets/Team: get a team together, buy a ticket and register your team.
– Become a Champion and start a fundraising page. This option has the most significant impact when you share your page with family and friends, and you get to come to the event for free.
Can’t become a Champion or buy a ticket? Support older adults in need and make a donation.
Our mission is to promote wellness, dignity & independence for seniors.
