Hi!

As you might know, (INSERT YOUR CONNECTION TO THE LAKE).

In order to show my love and support for Lake Hopatcong, I am participating in the Lake Hopatcong Foundation’s Virtual Lake Loop from October 1- October 11th. This virtual fitness challenge will help keep both myself and Lake Hopatcong healthy and vibrant by raising funds for the Lake Hopatcong Foundation and getting me moving!

The Lake Hopatcong Foundation is a 501(c)(3) that dedicates itself to protecting the lake environment and enhancing the lake experience, bringing together public and private resources to encourage a culture of sustainability and stewardship on and around New Jersey’s largest lake, for this and future generations.

It is my personal goal to reach (INSERT YOUR GOAL AND WHAT ACTIVITY OR ACTIVITIES YOU WILL BE DOING). I have pledged to raise (INSERT YOUR PERSONAL FUNDRAISING GOAL) by October 11th!

Interested in knowing where your money goes? The Foundation encompasses a variety of programs and initiatives that impact the lake in the areas of the Environment, Education, Community Building, Public Safety, Arts & Culture, and Recreation. You can visit lakehopatcongfoundation.org for more information!
