The Story

EVENT DATE: Aug 28, 2016

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Sep 01, 2016

Thank you for your interest in participating in the Beat the Bucket Challenge! 


On Sunday, August 28, New Hope Center for Grief Support will hold its second annual New Hope Family Fun Festival at Maybury Farm in Northville. This event will serve as a fundraiser and outreach event to engage the communities it serves as well as promote healthy grief practices. 


Planet Fitness is partnering with New Hope to create the Beat the Bucket challenge to help people in grief and has agreed to match the first $2,000 donated! The challenge will allow you to donate money online or at the event to throw plastic balls at a few targets that will send a bucket of water falling on a volunteer. All proceeds will benefit New Hope.


New Hope Center for Grief Support provides support, education, and community to people in Southeast Michigan grieving the loss of a loved one. Located in Northville, they have been serving the community since 2000. They are intentional about providing their services at no cost to those who are grieving. As a 501c3 non-profit organization, they rely on the generosity of others to provide this service to those looking for hope, healing and new beginnings after losing a loved one.
