What is it?
Spearheaded by the ACES Young Professionals Board (“YPAB”) and powered by DailyEndorphin, the second annual “Exercise 4 Education” Challenge is a three-week exercise-themed fundraising event to raise money for ACES and promote physical health & wellness. All proceeds support ACES’ quality academic after-school tutor/mentor programming in Minneapolis Public Schools and St. Paul Public Schools. Earn great prizes based on how much you exercise and money you raise to help ACES serve even more urban students!
Teams of up to 1-10 (max of 15) participants are encouraged. Team captains should set up their teams and invite others to join. Each team member is responsible for entering their own personal exercise minutes and for soliciting donors on theirs and their team’s behalf. The key is for everyone to get out and raise as much funds for ACES and exercise as much as possible (and log your data in DE) for three weeks!
Several great prizes will be awarded for top weekly and overall fundraisers, and much more! For every $100 you raise, earn $5 in “ACES Bucks” to apply to a raffle and silent auction at the Prize Party! Prize eligibility is determined by both money raised and minutes exercised. Prize party to be held at Cooper’s Irish Pub in St. Louis Park on Tuesday, March 20th. All challenge participants and their guests are welcome to join us!
