Support Us : Challenge 50!

2020 is the year that our fun-filled Challenge 21 gets a makeover! As it’s our 50th Anniversary, we want to see our supporters take on #Challenge50!

The challenges are designed to be accessible to anyone, anywhere and most importantly – good fun! We’re inviting individuals and communities to take on the tasks together and as groups. We’re going to be approaching a multitude of different communities with ideas for fundraising and awareness raising activities to drum up as much awareness as possible for #Challenge50.

Join the #Challenge50 movement and raise awareness and important funds for DSA. There are some great ideas for #Challenge50 below and you can also find some great fundraising resources here. But don’t forget, you can come up with your own #Challenge50 idea too.
