The virtual Lake Loop Challenge offers participants a chance to get moving, have fun, and raise funds to support a healthy community and a healthy Lake Hopatcong.
From October 8-15, our community hiked, biked, paddled, ran, swam, rowed, frisbee-golfed, moved and grooved for a combined 1,911 hours and miles of movement. Thank you to our 73 participants. We are awe-struck at the different types and amounts of activity you completed in seven days!
On the fundraising side, our $50,000 goal is within sight, and we are leaving our donation page open through Friday, October 18. You can help us reach our goal by making your contribution HERE.
