A: The training period starts on January 15, 2023. Each participant has 48 days to embark upon their own personal wellness journey.

Q: When does the challenge end?

Q: How can I get involved?
A: There are two ways…
Become a participant. You will sign up and have 48 days to train for a challenge of your choice. Over the course of 48 days, you will also be able to raise funds that go towards promoting wellness for the communities that Make a Miracle supports. We suggest asking for $1/day.
You can fundraise for a participant. If you wish to support a challenger, you have the option of donating to someone’s individual fundraising efforts. 

Q: Do I have to run to participate in the actual challenge?
A: No! The purpose of the challenge is for each participant to identify a modality of wellness that they would like to use 48 days to grow. We have a list of challenge ideas above, but you can also come up with your own custom idea.

Q: Are there prizes for the challenge?
A: Yes, there are prizes for fundraising for Make a Miracle, see above.

Q: What is the fundraising supporting?
A: All donations will be used to promote education, housing and wellness in the most impoverished communities in Peru.  This includes vet clinics, dental clinics, health screenings, personal and group counseling and more.

Q: Should I involve my family and friends in this challenge?
A: Absolutely! Finding wellness is a community effort and you should incorporate friends and family to help you during the 48 days.
