Goal Getter Challenge

MARCH 28 - MAY 8



Ever have trouble setting a goal or figuring out where to start? Our six-week Goal Getter Challenge will help you aim for success!

Having an accountability partner can provide added motivation, so ask your friends and family to participate with you. Rise to the challenge and go after your goals!

Ages 12 & up: FREE and open to the community.

JOIN OUR ONLINE COMMUNITY

We've created a private Facebook group to offer you encouragement and expertise throughout the challenge. It's a simple way for us to connect, find support, and learn from each other.
