Walk & Ride Challenges

Every day Center of Hope helps the guests who come through our doors get through difficult life challenges.

This summer we want to challenge you! You can help people who are in those difficult life circumstances by participating in either or both of the Walk & Ride Challenges!

This fitness challenge is a fun and beneficial way for you to challenge yourself to better health. Those who accept this challenge are encouraged to also challenge your friends to participate! Not only do you have fun and get fit, but you will make a difference in peoples lives.
