Charity Challenge

The winner of the Waterstop Charity Challenge will be given a $500 cash prize for their organization!

Want to participate in 2017?

In addition to potentially winning $500 as BEST WATERSTOP, your not-for-profit or charity will receive a FREE BOOTH at our race-kit pick-up. This is an amazing opportunity to spread your message and share information about your organization!

All charity groups participating in the waterstop challenge will receive an honorarium of $200.

All you need is 10 enthusiastic adult volunteers to pass out water between 7am-2pm on September 16 and a theme! We supply the cups, water, table, gloves etc.

Our judges will pick BEST WATERSTOP.

Are you part of a not-for-profit or charity group that want to participate? Call 902-877-9355 or email for more details.

All groups participating in the Charity Challenge must be not-for-profit or a charity.
