Rally a team to stair step in Hannah’s memory!




How it works:

Who can participate: Any staff, members and people in the community. The front desk will have a display about the fundraiser along with sign-up cards to participate and sign-up cards to donate.

How do we raise money?

Each person that signs up to do the stair-stepper will be asked to gather a team of people they know who will donate money for each minute they are on the stair-stepper. For example you may find 10 people who will donate $.50 for every minute you stay on. If you step for 50 minutes, that is $25 per person and $250 for your whole team. If we have 10 people raise $250 that makes our total $2,500.

Register your team at the Massad Family YMCA!
