Step Up for Bats Challenge
October 1, 2021 - October 31, 2021$45
When you participate in the Step Up for Bats Challenge this October, every step you take matters for bats! Whether you’re walking, running, biking, swimming, or taking part in any another fitness activity, it all counts. Registration is $45 and includes a Step Up For Bats swift-wicking T-shirt!
Bats are crucial to a healthy planet. They pollinate important food-bearing plants like bananas, peaches, and agave. They regenerate forests by dispersing seeds. They save farmers billions of dollars each year by eating crop-destroying insects and reducing the use of chemical pesticides in the environment. But unfortunately, bats around the world are on the decline due to threats like habitat loss, disease, and starvation – threats that we can overcome.
Join the challenge to walk a collective 15,000 miles (30 million steps) around the globe to raise awareness for the importance of bats, and raise $25,000 to support Bat Conservation International’s work to protect them. At each destination, you’ll unlock a milestone badge and special content! You can earn awards for fundraising and compete to raise the most money and track the most steps throughout the month of October.
How to participate:
Register and set up your account anytime before October 31st. Once you register, you will have your own web page that will track your distance and funds you raise.
Registration is $45 (includes T-shirt). Registration fees are counted toward your fundraising goal.
