CHOP Challenges Philadelphians to Conquer 31 Miles (or More)

Log miles throughout the month, raise money for CHOP.

Have you ever heard of a workout challenge with such a pleasant name? Daisy Days. I mean, come on, the name alone makes you want to get involved without even know what it’s all about. But we’ll tell you what it’s all about anyway: The Daisy Days 31-Day Challenge benefits the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (and your health, duh). It’s a 31-day virtual workout challenge that encourages folks to run or walk for at least 31 miles through the month of May. You logging miles helps to raise funds for the Integrative Health program at CHOP. How’s that for workout incentive?

So, how do you get involved? Well, you can sign up as a team or an individual; either way it’s $15 to register. Once registered, the next move is to choose your mileage goal: options include the Single Daisy, a 31-mile commitment; the Double Daisy, a 62-mile commitment; or the Ultra Daisy which is a 100-mile commitment. The next step is fundraising, which is made much easier with the use of a personal fundraising webpage, available to all participants. Finally, all you have to do is hold up your end of the bargain and get moving. And, if you’re a perks-driven soul, note: Registering for the challenge gets you a Daisy Day towel and an accomplishment badge to post on your fundraising page and social media; raising $150 earns you a t-shirt; raising $250 earns you a medal; raising $500 earns you a color-changing coffee mug; raising $1,000 earns you a beach towel and raising $2,500, or more, earns you a quarter-zip Under Armour pull-over. So. Much. Swag.

The challenge kicks off May 1st. You can learn more and register here.
