Today is the day !

The fifth annual Mark Lapointe 1000 Sit-Up Challenge Fundraiser is here!  As many of you already know, our dear friend Mark passed away from cancer in 2013.  In his memory, we have started an annual fundraiser where, with the blessing of the Lapointe family and in keeping with Mark's giving spirit, the proceeds will be donated to the Boys & Girls Club of Rutland County.

In its first year, we raised over $6,000; funds that went to help his family in a time of great need.  In its second and third years, we raised almost $23,000 for the Boys and Girls Club.  There the money helped fund programs that give teens a safe place to go and positive role models to look up to.  In its fourth year, the money was used to help homeless veterans through lodging, food, and education programs. Now in our fifth year, we are back to working with the Boys & Girls Club.

 

The sit-up challenge will take place on November 18th at Green Mountain Rock Climbing Center in Rutland, VT.  Participants will have from 9AM-10AM to get their 1000 sit-ups in.  Participants will be able to seek their own sponsors.  This means that donations can be made to the cause in the name of one of the challengers, similar to a walk-a-thon.  We are accepting donations as of today!  Please give what you can to this amazing cause.  As always, we thank you for your generosity!
