PHILANTHROPY CHALLENGE

In addition to the physical competition, we ask participants to raise funds and awareness for the Institute and its mariner support services. Each team is challenged to raise a minimum of $3,000*. The money raised by each team counts towards overall team rankings and awards. SCI creates a donation webpage page for each team and its members, and will send competitors instructions on how to login and personalize their team and individual pages.

*Participation in the Philanthropy Challenge is not mandatory to compete in the SCI Mountain Challenge. However, overall standings are calculated based on course times AND money raised. We strongly encourage all teams to participate.
