TORONTO — Friends of We Care is pivoting its National Bowling Challenge to a virtual gaming month.
The event, running From November 1 to 30, will offer opportunities to challenge individuals and teams coast-to-coast, play fun online games and raise money to help send kids with disabilities to virtual Easter Seals camps.
Participants can sign up for the challenge for $40. Registration includes access to an exclusive weekly online game, a ballot in the event’s grand-prize draw and fun weekly challenges. Companies and groups can also create teams to connect individuals and/or employees across the country (contact Arooj at email@example.com for more details). Every participant can choose which province to raise money for.
Each week will include three unique challenges:
• A Game Challenge accessed through exclusive links sent to registered participants every Sunday. Participants will have one week to play the game and submit a screenshot of their top score. The individuals with the top-10 scores will be placed into a weekly prize draw aired on Friends of We Care’s Facebook page.
• The Fundraising Challenge will help the organization reach its $25,000 national-fundraising goal. Participants will create their own fundraising page and collect pledges, with every $50 raised gaining them an extra ballot into the grand-prize draw.
• The Social-Media Challenge invites participants to participate in a social-media activity challenge at home, according to the theme of that week’s game. Snap a picture, tag @friendsofwecare and #WeCareGamesMonth on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or LinkedIn and participants will receive another entry into the grand-prize draw.
The challenge will feature weekly prizes for Top Game Score (drawn from amongst the top-10 highest scores. And, at the end of the month, the top fundraising team and individual will receive awards. The grand-prize draw will also take place at the end of November, with prizes such as electronics, jewellery and gift cards.
