Squeaky shoes, three point shots, the sound your bracket makes when it breaks wide open – it’s March Madness! In the spirit of the Final Four, 24 Foundation is hosting a challenge next week that will pit city vs. city. Each city will be assigned a staff coach to help develop a game plan that will hopefully be a winner. Cities will be awarded points based on fundraising and recruitment goals. Here’s how it works:

Free throws. One point for every dollar fundraised next week.

Slam dunks. 2-points for every special task completed. These will be easy! Get a head start by submitting a team goal sheet for your first two points!

Three pointers. 3-points for every new person recruited.

Half court shot. 5-points for every new team started next week!

To keep it fair, we’ll divide the number of points won by the number of riders in each city so that larger cities don’t have an advantage. You’ll receive a coach’s report each day next week that will give you the standings, some tips and plenty of trash talk. Along with bragging rights , the winning city will win a $2,500 grant for a local 24 Foundation beneficiary!

The challenge will start Monday, March 31 at 12:01 a.m. and run through Sunday, April 6 at 11:59 p.m. Look out for upcoming fundraising and recruitment tips to help get you geared up for the ride. Happy March Madness!
