Do you like to physically challenge yourself?

Do you like to raise money for charity?

Do you like to have fun outdoors?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are ready for the first-ever Health Law Society Sport-A-Thon!

When: Saturday, April 24, 2021, at 1:00 p.m. (in-person), accepting virtual challenges through May, 2021

Where: A-Walk, behind the law school

Who: This event is open to everyone!  We need participants as well as sponsors.

Why: To raise money for Pittsburgh Mercy's Operation Safety Net, Pittsburgh's "street medicine" program.

sponsorship and donation payment linkAccepting donations through May, 2021!

Here's how it works:

1. Download, print out, or email Sponsorship Pledge Forms and find people who would like to sponsor you to complete physical tasks.  The possibilities are endless!  For example, a sponsor could pledge to pay X amount of dollars IF you can jump rope 100 times in a row without tripping.  It may take several tries, but if you complete the task, you just raised your pledged amount for Operation Safety Net! There will also be a donation link (see above) for those who just want to make a donation without any challenges needing to be met.

2. Come to campus on Saturday, April 24th, to complete your challenges in person.  Not on campus?  Send a video of you completing your challenge(s) at home (for proof and fun), and call in your sponsorships!

There is no limit to the challenges you can accept.  Sit-ups, plank holding, push-ups, jumping rope...if it's a physical challenge, we can make it happen!  Pledges can be designated for a length of time, a number of repetitions, whatever the sponsor wants, for whatever dollar amount they choose.  Join us for the first official allowable law school gathering since March 2020!  We will be masked, socially distanced, and outside.  There will be snacks and games, and we can have fun cheering each other on to complete the challenges.
