Picking Up The Tab for Ronald McDonald House JAX
Although the whole can is valuable, the tab is much cleaner and easier to collect in large quantities than whole cans. The tab of a standard can is made of high quality, high-grade aluminum. By itself, it doesn’t mean much but when we pull together, pop tabs add up and become valuable donations to the Ronald McDonald House.
This year, Challenge Enterprises collected and donated 30 and a half gallons of tabs for the Ronald McDonald House of Jacksonville.
Gate River Run: A Run for Inclusion
2020 was the year of challenges for The Ability Experience and Challenge Enterprises. In March 2020, we expanded our partnership to include the Run for Inclusion at the Gate River Run. The summer of 2020, we re-imaged Gear Up Florida as a virtual event. All these changes have only strengthened our joint mission for a more inclusive community.
With some adjustments, we are committed to finding a safe way to participate in the Gate River Run in 2021. Stay tuned to learn more and to cheer on our joint team.
Every year, Challenge Enterprises sponsors and decorates a tree for the Green Cove Springs Parade of Trees. This year we invited everyone to help Trim the Tree with their Gift for Inclusion. Participants picked an ornament from one of the squares on our website, made a donation of their choosing and customize their square for the holidays. There was also an invitation to take a walk through the holiday wonderland at Spring Park looking for the Challenge Enterprises tree with the hint: Gnome-body knows! Did you find the Challenge Enterprises tree?
