The Most Fun You Can Have in 8 Minutes…. 

Pulling for My Community is the United Way SIBC’s annual signature Spring fundraising event. Due to restrictions on larger events, we have created a virtual team challenge event that encourages teams of 8 people (corporate, friends & family) to pick an activity and do it for 8 minutes. Teams will need to dig deep and encourage others to support them in this peer-to-peer virtual fundraising event.

Shoot hoops, sing songs, do star jumps, read a book, go for a hike, sit in a hot-tub, score goals, bake cookies……WHATEVER you choose to do, together but apart, as a team, shout it from the rooftops and show your local love!

8 People, 8 Minutes, 80,000+ Local Lives Changed

The teams will “Make Your Own Team Challenge”, doing whatever they want to do, together, but apart, for 8 minutes. This can be a fitness activity, game, chores, act of kindness or something completely different.

The participating teams will compete for the coveted Community Cup based on set judging criteria applied by a panel of celebrity local judges. Your team challenge will be assessed on creativity, laugh factor, degree of difficulty, potential for community impact, and of course $$ raised per team!

The event will take place on June 20th 2020 from 10 am online, virtually and in all team members front yards, driveways or local open spaces!


The winning team gains bragging rights and the coveted Community Cup. Consolation prizes for the top individual fundraiser, top team fundraising, most spirited and best costumes!!

When: June 20, 2020 starting at 10 a.m – 12:30pm 

Where: Your Own Front (or Back!) Yard!
