Challenge fundraisers are when an individual takes on a personal challenge – either physical or non-physical – to support Room to Read. The challenger sets a goal and rallies their friends, family, co-workers and teammates for support as they hit milestones and as they embark towards their goal.
The goal can be anything you want — training for a fitness goal, learning to play an instrument, or exploring a new hike each week.
