Every Summer, we host our annual Care Farm challenge on the last Saturday of July.
The challenge takes place on Centennial Farm and is a farm style obstacle race for our friends with disabilities. Our Care Farm participants work for months to build an exciting course where athletes will face creek crossings, climbing obstacles, and many other challenges to reach the finish. We have a reliable team of volunteers who are placed throughout the course to lend a helping hand when needed, and make sure everyone gets through safely. And as always, we wrap up the event with a wonderful BBQ lunch afterwards for the participants, visitors and spectators. The event is open to the public and free for all participants thanks to many generous donors in our community.
This year’s Challenge was the Fourth Annual event, and our best attendance yet. We are so grateful for the generosity of our community; sponsors, donors, volunteers and participants, who made it possible and an enormous success. We rely on donations to continue to provide this free event, and we can’t thank you enough. In addition to the generous giving of individuals during the Flathead Gives Fundraiser, we also receive annual support from these community partners:
Eagle Transit: Transportation for participants to the race.
Fun Beverage: Provide water and flavored drinks for participants and spectators
Costco: Gift Certificate to support BBQ
Bitterroot Screen Printers: Discounted screen printing for event hats for athletes
