What is the Courageous Challenge? It is22 minutes of all out effort to knock out as many push-ups as possible.
WHY? The Courageous Challenge is AFM’s #1 FunD Raising Event of the Year to engage the community in a fun activity that raises awareness and support for a vital mission– the eradication of suicide! Together we are building a culture of health in the Veteran and Law Enforcement Community to turn the tide on suicide for all people in Coweta and Fayette County.
Who can participate as a contender? The event is open to all people who don’t mind sweating and knocking out push-ups for a worthy cause. Contenders can participate as an individual or with a team. Teams might be the local gym, a youth group, a sports team, a company. Anything is possible. Teams should be at least five participants.
Are awards given for Challenge participants? Yes! Awards will be given by age and gender for first, second and third place finish. Age categories are teen, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+. One team trophy will be awarded based on the highest average for the team. Finally, the top fund raiser will receive a trophy.
What do volunteers do? It is highly likely that the 2017 Headquarters event in Peachtree City will require the effort of at least 100 volunteers. Whether serving on the hydration team, counter team, set-up team or a wide range of other positions every team member is vitally important to the success of the event. Learn More
