CATCH Good Health Challenge
On May 5, 2020, CATCH is celebrating GivingTuesdayNow by kicking off our month-long CATCH Good Health Challenge, an initiative to bring good health to communities everywhere, while unlocking funds to support our in-school and online K-12 programs.
Our goal is two-fold: to make good health viral and to raise $10,000 by May 31st so we can continue reaching youth across the country with health education via our CATCH.org and Health at Home platforms.
The first $2,500 raised through the campaign will be matched by a generous pool of donors!
To meet this goal, we need your help!
You can sign up today to participate in the CATCH Good Health Challenge and become an advocate for health equity by committing to do some – or all! – of the below activities.
How to Participate
- SHOW Good Health: Each week, we’ll feature an activity from the Health at Home platform that you can do at home with your family or virtually with your wider community. Complete the activities daily OR you can create your own health challenge to do throughout the month! We’ll send out each week’s challenge via: (1) email to all challenge registrants, (2) our Facebook page, and (3) text alerts (to sign up, text CATCHCHAMP to 22999).
Share your experience on social media by tagging @CATCHHealth and using the #catchgoodhealth hashtag. (Check out our CEO Duncan Van Dusen’s campaign for inspiration!)
- FUNDRAISE for Good Health: Register to host an online fundraiser for CATCH, download our fundraising toolkit, and blast your campaign page out to your friends and family. Each person to raise $500 will win a free Catch.org subscription for the school of afterschool program of their choice!*
- DONATE to Good Health: Make an online contribution to CATCH in honor of CATCH Good Health. For example, a donation of just $50 will allow us to reach 100 students.
At CATCH, we believe that all kids deserve healthy environments, and we know that we can create those healthy environments anywhere – whether at home or in the classroom. Our programs are FUN, effective, and they address whole child health.
Please join us today in supporting our CATCH Good Health campaign. Every contribution helps!
Why CATCH Good Health?
Like many nonprofits, CATCH Global Foundation’s programs have been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. Particularly, the closure of schools means that we’re not able to deliver our programs and trainings as usual.
To adapt, we recently launched CATCH Health at Home, an online platform delivering health education to parents and educators for free.
We’re proud of this initiative and our ability to provide evidence-based health practices to our community at a time when we need them the most. But we need your help to maintain the platform and distribute the resources.
Your support now will allow us to keep our staff together and deliver additional health education materials to meet the new needs of schools, educators, and youth.
