We are really wanting to make a difference and bring awareness to this cause. Everyone on the fundraising team holds it dear to their hearts, as do many of our donation hubs. Also, this year is the first time we’re incorporating much more social media coverage and in turn, want to make the weigh-in event an incredible get together and opportunity for the public to come out and get excited about being a part of something awesome. We want to support our youth, right here at home, by giving them the one thing every young person deserves – HOPE.
