A CHALLENGE to raise funds for Chaska DECA & Chaska ROTARY
Brought to you by

CHASKA ROTARY CLUB
Join us for a fun family event on the 10 days leading up to Thanksgiving. Runners, walkers, and local residents would normally gather at the Chaska High School to raise money for two worthy organizations. The Chaska DECA Club and the Chaska ROTARY Club join forces to bring a great event to all.
This year, we've had to make adjustments like the whole world but we wanted to do something fun and get people moving. Covid-19 pretty much stinks but we can do something to make a positive difference so here we are.
DECA funding typically allows our best and brightest students to compete at regional, state, and national competitions on business development. Chaska DECA has a long and successful record of qualifying, competing, and winning at national events. Chaska DECA designates their proceeds this year to help with a food pantry for CHS students in need.
The Chaska ROTARY Club has been a force for good in Eastern Carver County for more than 45 years. All proceeds from the race are invested back into service projects. Chaska ROTARY raises money to fund fresh water projects worldwide, hosts exchange students locally as well as sending students abroad, provides funding for several local community projects, and offers scholarships to well-deserving students within the community. Proceeds from the race are also raised for the ROTARY International END POLIO NOW Challenge Grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
