School Challenge

Show your school spirit and win!

McCain School Challenge

Participation is easy. Create a team for your school. Recruit others to join. Register and compete against schools similar in size in our weekend of events in person or virtually. Schools with the highest percentage of student participation in any of our events win and receive money for their school. Your school could win $750, $500 or $250. Plus, our new sponsor McCain is donating a bag of surprises for every student who registers with your team! This is in addition to all the goodies they already receive by registering for an event. 

Students can participate in any weekend event to help your school win, but the most popular family-friendly events are:

  • Guardian Kids Fun Run or Huggies® Diaper Dash & Toddler Trot – We are offering these two events as virtual experiences in 2021 with a special Race Kit so you can run your race or home, with your neighborhood, at your daycare or at your school. Registration is now open!
  • Ascension 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, September 18, 2021. Participate in-person or run your race at home or at school through our virtual race experience. Registration is open for both in-person and virtual. 

There is NO COST TO YOUR SCHOOL and all participants receive extra items as part of the race! (Regular entry fees apply – but there is no additional cost for your school to be a part of the School Challenge)

All elementary, middle and high schools (public and parochial) in the Fox Cities and surrounding school districts are eligible to participate.
