Q: How can I get involved?
A: There are two ways…
Become a participant. You will sign up and have 48 days to train for a challenge of your choice. Over the course of 48 days, you will also be able to raise funds that directly support housing, education and wellness in Peru. We suggest asking for $1/day.
You can fundraise for a participant. If you wish to support a challenger, you have the option of donating to someone’s individual fundraising efforts. 

Q: Do I have to run to participate in the actual challenge?
A: No! The purpose of the challenge is for each participant to identify a modality of wellness that they would like to use 48 days to grow. We have a list of challenge ideas above, but you can also come up with your own custom idea.

Q: Are there prizes for the challenge?
A: Yes, there are prizes for fundraising for Make a Miracle - see above!
