The “Station Challenge” 

The mission behind the station challenge is to encourage creative physical activity while also showing children how rewarding it can be. It’s an exciting, simple challenge consisting of obstacle courses and single-player fitness games designed for all ages and skill sets.

In addition, each fitness station is ran by a Gold level sponsor, which gives parents the opportunity to discover beneficial, health-related resources through out the community.

★ Where do the Donations Go?

We will once again be donating part of our proceeds to the Round Rock ISD Council of PTAs however this year we will also be donating to the “Bikes for Kids” charity created by JB and Sandy from the JB and Sandy Morning Show on Mix 94.7.

About Bikes for Kids: Over the past 16 years, JB & Sandy’s Bikes for Kids program has reached an amazing milestone; over 10,000 bikes donated and more than $1 million raised!  Bikes for Kids was started in 1996 by JB & Sandy because they believed that no child should miss out on the feeling of receiving a shiny new bicycle on Christmas morning.  Thanks to you, Bikes for Kids has grown from its grass roots beginnings when 100 children were surprised with new bikes to now being one of Austin’s most recognized charities.
