The Delaware Charity Challenge is a unique fundraising and athletic competition designed to give organizations, families, and individuals a fun way to raise money and awareness for their favorite causes. Teams that enter may designate any charity they want as a beneficiary of funds they raise as a team. Part of the proceeds from the race registrations and the race sponsorships will go into a prize pool that will be distributed among the charities that raise the most money and to the charities of the teams that win the individual race events on the day of the Delaware Charity Challenge.

We wanted to introduce a fun element to the Delaware Charity Challenge Winter Games, not unlike the Adventure Challenge Relay, which we do as part of the Delaware Charity Challenge 5K in the Spring. It was a big hit and teams seemed to enjoy it. There were two heats, with winners advancing to the finals. In the end, Team Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund won the scooter race and a $100 prize for the Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund.
