Fitness Challenge for Charity (October 2021)

Challenge Dates: The Fitness Challenge will run for 10 days - October 15th to October 24th -  and will include two weekends to help you maximize your miles.
Sponsorship: Valiant will donate $1.00 for every mile over the course of the Challenge! Set a daily goal of bike miles or step miles that you plan to reach. Just think 10K steps a day is $10/day or 20 bike miles is $20/day towards your charity!
Charities: Choose from a list of 50+ charities that are making a big impact on health, children, animals, the environment, education, and Veterans.

Easy Setup: The miles can easily be tracked on your phone / fit watch / Peloton and synced to our ChallengeRunner website.  All the sync setup details are listed on the sign-up sheet. Set-up can be done anytime before the challenge begins on October 15th. Good news, if you participated in the Spring Fitness challenge your setup has already been completed.

Past Events

Happy Hour

Everyone was a Prize winner at our virtual Happy Hour with a pizza delivery and laughs for days!

Team Trivia

Congrats to Cat Buchanan, Jason Buchanan, Tom Zarycki, and Everett Daviage for winning the Team Trivia game!   It was a close 2nd place (only 1 point difference) which went to Geoff Gregory, David Ellis and Heather Ward!  1st place won $50 gift card and 7 GoG points and 2nd place won $25 gift card and 6 GoG points. Thanks to all that joined in the fun!

Summer Party

Thank you for those who could join us at the Summer Party at the Farm Brewery! We had perfect weather for the kids to play and the adults to drink/eat and enjoy catching up.  Many braved the axe-throwing barn and learned how to throw an axe with precision. The free concert later that evening was the perfect way to finish the evening!

Codenames

Codenames is a Top Secret Word game made up of 2 teams with 3-4 people on a team. We played a Double elimination tournament in the Fall 2021. Congrats to Team Leo Trendowicz, Mark Williams and Everett Daviage for winning Code Names. They were able to outlast Team Sara Wenke and Cat/Jason Buchanan. ‍
