1000 Kick Challenge

1000 Kick Challenge ~ 2017

Any Age ~ Any Fitness Level ~ Any Place


Participants & Sponsors Needed!!

3 Days - 1,000 Kicks 

Kickstart your summer!  It's EASY and it's for a great cause.  Grab a sponsor, download a pedometer app & get kicking.  The best part is that you can do this from ANYWHERE!  You don't have to do all 1,000 kicks.  We ask that you do the best you can, as little or as much you want in 3 days.  June 22-24, 2017.

Participants: gather a team of 2 or more to complete the challenge with you.  Ask friends, family, employers or businesses to sponsor you - either a per kick amount or a flat donation.  Then June 22-24 start kicking for suicide prevention & awareness!

Sponsors: choose to sponsor a participant/team either with a flat donation or a per kick (i.e. .05/kick; 1000 kicks will be $50.).  Donate here online, or by check made to Yellow Ribbon Suicide Prevention.  ALL Donations are tax-deducible as allowed by law.
