The Challenge is a friendly fundraising competition where organizations benefiting America's heroes, such as veterans, military families, police, and firefighters, compete to raise the most money with the top teams winning grand prize cash donations from the Craig Newmark Philanthropic Fund.

  • The team that raises the most during the Challenge wins a $15,000 donation
  • Second place gets $10,000
  • Third gets $5,000
