Technologies: Philanthropy

Challenge Cares is a course designed to introduce children to philanthropy and social responsibility. Over the past 8 years Challenge campers have hosted a carnival fundraiser and silent auction and have raised over $24,000 for charities we find near and dear to our hearts.
