Why should I do it?

  • A Challenge Walker individual or team agrees to raise $1,000 or more for COTS to support shelter and services for those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
  • An anonymous donor has generously donated a matching grant for
  • Challenge Walker donations. So, your Walk efforts go even further when you agree to take the challenge.

WHY SHOULD I DO IT?

    • Make a difference in your community;
