This is our year to rebuild and come back stronger! The 43rd Freihofer's Run for Women will now be held both in person and as a virtual event on September 25, 2021. The Comeback Challenge is designed to help us rebuild. As we can begin to do things together let's celebrate and engage. Let's support our regional communities and all the businesses and people who have been impacted by COVID 19. This challenge supports you and our community. Get out there explore, be active, find new passions and do it together.

Over the course of this 8 week challenge we will encourage you to try new activities. You can log swims, hikes, time spent in the garden and more. For each 10 minutes of activity you will log one mile. while this isn't a competition we do know that people like to set goals, so you have the ability to set some goals for yourself. We will also share opportunities like the free Erie Canalway Challenge and the Discover Albany app. To keep you motivated we have local fitness professionals offering free classes. Registered dieticians and physical therapists will share how to get/keep your body in top condition. These partners will also be offering amazing prizes - one one one nutrition counseling, free month long memberships and more.

When you join you will also be supporting regional non profits. We know how COVID has made it very difficult for traditional fundraising events to occur. Proceeds from this Comeback Challenge will support Girls on the Run Capital Region, The Albany Med COVID-19 Response Fund and The Community Foundation of the Greater Capital Region and United Way's Capital Region Community COVID-19 Response Fund.

Once you join you'll receive a link to a Facebook page with additional resources. Welcome to the Comeback Challenge '21.
