GetUP for United Way


Rotating images of people being active

Thank you for getting UP for community!

Our first-ever virtual physical challenge was a huge success thanks to our amazing participants. More than 3,000 people ran, walked, lifted, stretched and cycled for 280 minutes (or more) in support of people and families experiencing poverty and related #UNIGNORABLE issues.

We want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who participated and everyone who donated. You’ve shown your #LocalLove for our community and helped ensure that United Way’s network of 280 agencies can stay active and responsive on the frontlines.

We also want to thank KPMG for making this event possible. They ensured youth got a chance to GetUP for community too. And thanks to Thistle Printing for their contributions to the event.

See you next time!
