CHALLENGE YOURSELF

People anywhere, doing almost anything can be part of challenge.  

Take your ability to the next level  and Challenge Yourself with an activity that you choose, on a date that fits your busy schedule!   We help everyone of all abilities find the compelling athlete within, and the goal of Challenge Yourself is for you to come up with something that is challenging to you and will inspire friends and others to donate to AccesSport.   This is your challenge,  relative to who you are and the challenges you may face whether from age or inexperience, living with a disability or simply wanting to better yourself.   Try something new, revisit an old favorite, combine a few activities, the choice is yours. 

You choose your sport or activity and set your own fundraising goal (a $250 minimum).   You could even start a team challenge with friends, family, or co-workers.   Whether you want to raise a little or raise a lot, people anywhere, doing almost anything, can be part of the Challenge Yourself program.  You’ll have all the tools to create your own Challenge fundraiser page and can complete the challenge where and when it works for you!   

Sign up today to Challenge Yourself.   Registered participants that raise $2500 or more by December 31st 2019, will receive one (1) complimentary ticket to the April 28th, 2020 Gala and a chance to meet our two honorees: New England Patriots Head Coach and longtime AccesSport Honorary Board Member, Bill Belichick and our 25th Anniversary Athlete, Josh Lilley. 

In honor of our anniversary, we hope to have at least 25 people raise $2,500 each by the end of 2019, and dozens more participating at all levels.   Whether your fundraising goal is $250, $500, $1,000 or more, know that your support is important to us and is how we reach more than 2,000 people each year.

You have nearly 5 months to complete your Challenge. Whatever your skill is (or is not!), let us help you develop something that will honor you and AccesSport!

Getting started is easy.  Just email us with your idea or for suggestions, and one of our staff will contact you to get started.
