IM-PAC Virtual Challenge

Summer Activity Challenge to Raise Scholarship Dollars!

 

 

The Adena Health Foundation, in conjunction with Adena Sports Medicine, will be offering a virtual challenge for the summer of 2021. Community members are invited to take part in the inaugural IM-PAC Virtual Challenge, an event designed to keep you and your family members busy all summer long. This will be a great way to deal with Covid fatigue while at the same time offering the chance to help local high school athletes as they look ahead to college. The event, a fundraiser for the annual Adena Athlete of the Year scholarships awarded by the Heath System to local senior high school athletes, will take the place of the Paint Creek Palooza fundraising event that was held for three years prior to COVID-19’s arrival last year.

The virtual challenge, running from May 28 through September 10 with registration available through July 5, is guided by a smartphone application that participants will receive a link to after registering. The app provides information on 14 activities designed to improve body, mind and soul. Included among them are such things as visiting the Hopewell mound sites or other National Historic Parks, participating in an outdoor fitness activity, playing an outdoor game, completing a fitness trail at a park or other outdoor fitness area, volunteering in some capacity, enjoying an evening campfire and several others.

To take part, an individual scholarship donation of $30 per person is required, although donations of $50, $100 or other custom amounts will be accepted. Any family or team of up to four participants at $100 each will receive a medal as a token of completion. Incentive prizes are being planned in several categories, as well as other giveaways.
