Q: Is the Charity Challenge Virtual Again for 2021?
A: Yes, due to the global pandemic, the Charity Challenge will be virtual again this year. The 2021 Vermont Adaptive Charity Challenge will move to a completely virtual event starting now and culminating with virtual happy hour celebration with live music and more on June 19. This is not a decision that we made lightly again for this year, and we will miss the opportunity to see you all, but given guidance from the CDC, the State of Vermont, and in an effort to keep our community and participants safe, we are confident that this is the best decision again for this year.
Q: What is a “Virtual” charity challenge mean? How do I participate?
