Welcome to the Lake Hopatcong Foundation's 2021 Virtual Lake Loop Challenge!
Back by popular demand, we’re bringing you another great virtual activity challenge where you can have fun, get fit, and raise funds to support a healthy and vibrant Lake Hopatcong. Whether you're walking, running, biking, paddling, doing yoga, jumping rope - it all counts towards our goal, as we come together as a community to get active for a combined 2,021 hours/miles and raise $50,000 to support Lake Hopatcong!
Registration is open, and kids 12 and under are FREE (look for the age based pricing button). For each wave of registration, participants will be entered in drawings for prizes, so register early and potentially win more - just for registering! We'll be keeping everyone connected here, through email, and on social media.
Awards ceremony and celebration
On Sunday, October 17 from 12:30 pm -3:30 pm, you and your cheering sections are invited to join us for an awards ceremony and celebration at Hopatcong State Park, where we will celebrate another successful Lake Loop! Bring a chair and come prepared to enjoy a few hours of music, food, a beer tent, and fun! All registered participants will receive a voucher for a free food item, and the first beer from the beer tent is FREE. For all others, food and drink will be available for purchase. We hope you'll join us!
When you register, a fundraising page will automatically be generated for you that you will be prompted to personalize. Add your photo, a catchy tagline, a goal, your story. We encourage everyone to take a minute and have a little fun filling out this section. When you're done registering, you'll receive a confirmation email and a separate email with your unique fundraising page link to share with your support network of friends, family, and neighbors. Your network can also make a donation in support of your activity from this page by clicking "donate".
Have friends participating in the Virtual Lake Loop Challenge? Consider creating or joining a team! During registration, you'll be prompted to create a team or join a pre-existing one. Give your team a catchy name, a story, and photo. Teams will also be prompted to set a fundraising goal, and friends can choose to donate to you, or to your team.
