During the month of August, Tioga State Bank (TSB) and The Owego Kitchen are co-hosting a virtual “Community Care 100k Run / Walk Challenge.” Every person who completes the 100k Challenge in August will receive a shirt with a custom logo for the event.
For each individual completing the challenge, TSB will donate $25 per (up to $5,000) to local food banks. There will also be a chance each week to earn an extra prize for different mini challenges throughout the month.
The Community Care 100k Challenge began on Aug. 1, and ends on Aug. 31. This is a VIRTUAL event and gives everyone an opportunity to focus on something positive and healthy.
RUN OR WALK – that is up to each participant. The goal is to finish 100km (62 miles) by the end of August.
Participants can join in for a healthy lifestyle and feel good about participating in “Caring for Our Community One Step at a Time!” (#CommunityCare100k)
The Challenge is organized through the Nike Run Club App and is hosted on a Facebook event located at www.facebook.com/events/726312681516469/?event_time_id=726312684849802.
