The Ever Forward Club is excited to announce our "Quince". This is our 15th year hosting the 24 Hour Relay Challenge in the Bay Area. We look forward to seeing you as a participant or as a volunteer. Imagine a community where teenagers don’t use alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs - a community where kids have plenty to do, are involved in healthy activities and take pride in the town they live in - a community where drinking and driving among youth don't exist. Sounds great, doesn’t it? Surveys have shown that most 11th grade students use alcohol and other drugs, many on a regular basis.
Overwhelmingly, these students say they want more activities which don’t involve alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. Yet education budgets are tight and funding is limited. However, you can help! Get Involved in the 24 HOUR RELAY CHALLENGE. What is it? The 24 Hour Relay Challenge will become a Memorial Day tradition in the Bay Area. It is a community event that brings together people of all ages and abilities to participate in a unique and memorable experience. It is also the major fund - raising project that benefits student programs that help motivate students to achieve their goals, improve their communities, and also show them that they can have fun without drugs, alcohol, and tobacco. This year's Relay our goal is to have as many as 40 teams, made up of 10 members each. Each participant runs or walks one mile, then passes the baton to the next member, and so on. This process continues for the entire 24 hour period. While the teams are circling the track, a giant community campout takes place with continuous entertainment, food, and camping – participants have a chance to meet others who believe in a healthy lifestyle. Without a doubt, it is 24 hours of memorable fun for everyone involved!
REGISTRATION FEE: The registration fee for a team (consisting of 10 students and 2 parent coordinators) is $500. In order to register as a team, submit the registration fee in advance, along with the team registration forms. All contributions are tax deductible. Don't worry, you can get sponsors to help you with the cost of your team's contribution. Talk to family members, relatives, friends, co-workers, or businesses to see if they will help sponsor you or your team. For example, each student on a student team would only have to get ten people to contribute $5 each to equal $50 per student.
