Description

The 10th annual DL Snack Pack Project to benefit Second Story will be held on Tuesday, August 10. The purpose of the project is to provide meals and snacks, in the form of Snack Packs, to the children who participate in Second Story's afterschool programs at the Culmore Teen Center in Falls Church. Second Story is a local organization that provides counseling, shelter and neighborhood-based support services for children, youth and families.

Sponsorship/Donation Opportunities
To celebrate our 10-year anniversary supporting the important work of this organization, we are launching a "10 for 10" goal to raise $10,000 towards the purchase of food for the Snack Packs. This will allow us to donate 5000 meals. Corporate sponsorships and individual donations pay for the food and supplies used to make Snack Packs.

We are excited to report that we have reached our sponsorship goals. We appreciate your support. Thank you.

Volunteers to pack/deliver
It takes lots of hands to assemble 5000 Snack Packs in one day. Please consider helping us out by registering for one of the August 10 packing or delivery shifts.

Virtual Fitness Challenge

To Benefit Second Story

October 18-24, 2020

Description

The NAIOP Northern Virginia Developing Leaders Committee is holding this virtual fitness challenge to help raise money for Second Story's Culmore Teen Center. As a result of the current pandemic, the DLs have planned this event as an alternative to their annual Snack Pack Project. 100% of the funds raised will be used by the center's afterschool program to provide meals and supplies to middle school-aged children and their families. The Culmore Teen Center continues to operate and provide service to the local community. Last year, the DLs were able to deliver over 4500 meals. The need is even greater this year.

Our goal is to raise $10,000, which will provide 5000 Snack Packs, by pledging to reach a collective 3.5 million steps. Please join us as we rack up the steps for a worthy cause!

What to Do

Every step counts! Register to participate and contribute to our goals. You can choose from activities that naturally involve steps such as walking, running or hiking, or select your preferred fitness activity and use the chart below to convert your movement to steps. If you don't see your favorite activity, use a similar activity as a guide.

We are using ChallengeRunner to log everyone's progress. Track your steps on your favorite wearable tracker and sync it with the ChallengeRunner. You may also manually add your steps to the app. You will receive a link to NAIOP's ChallengeRunner account when you complete the registration process.

You can also just view the NAIOP DL Fitness Challenge page.

The individual(s) who log the most total steps will win a one-year NAIOP membership. The winner(s) will be recognized at the 2020 Annual Meeting in December.
