You can create your own event

Create Your Event

Get together with your friends, family, or colleagues to walk, run, cycle, hike, play, ski, surf or climb for Team Kesem. The possibilities are endless, and they all have a positive impact on children across the country. 

Past Team Kesem members have signed up for a local 5k, fundraised through their kickball league, organized a swimming competition, or created their own events like the ones outlined below. With a little creativity, any fitness activity could become a Team Kesem fundraiser!

See the section below on some of our Team Kesem MVP’s for more ideas!

Team Kesem Wellness Challenge

The Kesem community came together last March for a friendly competition to see who could log the most wellness activities. Download the Kilter App to be a part of Team Kesem year-round and join us for another wellness challenge in the spring. Earn points and raise funds for going about your usual workouts and fitness activities like neighborhood strolls or home gym workouts. Coming together as a community virtually and engaging in personal wellness raises critical funds to help more kids.
