Starting this month and running through May, Chase After a Cure is offering an opportunity to raise money for cancer research and a second chance for new year’s fitness resolutions with the Procrastinators Challenge.
Participants can sign up for one month or all three months and select the number of workouts in that time period along with fundraising goals.
Participants in the Procrastinators Challenge are encouraged to share their fundraising page on social media using #CAACFitness. Prizes will be given each month to the team/individual that raises the most money and for those who work out and share the most.
Chase After a Cure funds research and clinical trials that have the potential to help the lives of pediatric cancer patients. Since its founding, the organization has provided more than $500,000 to pediatric cancer research at the Medical University of South Carolina Children’s Hospital.
