Beyond the Backyard,  a new Habitat Challenge
Saturday, September 26, 2020

It’s part scavenger hunt and part double-dog-dare. You may get wet, you may get a little dirty, and you will definitely laugh.

In Beyond the Backyard, your team (3-8 people) races to complete challenges in the categories of  PHYSICAL, FIND, SKILL and FUN. In total, there are 24 challenges for your team to unlock using your collective fundraising power. Suited for all ages and stages, this quest is made for athletes and fun-seekers of all ability levels. Curious how it works? Check out our FAQs.


Beyond the Backyard is a unique fundraiser for these times, as the competition is run in your community. There’s no gathering. It’s just you, your team, and the space around you. You can contain it to your immediate family and your own block, or expand out to include some close friends and your city. It’s all up to you and your comfort level.

Each team has a fundraising goal of $1,200 to unlock all 24 challenges. But we make it easy with a user-friendly online platform for you to collect donations and track your progress. Registration is $25, which includes an event t-shirt and use of the race app; entry fees are also applied to your fundraising total.

Every dollar you raise helps open the door to a family’s first home – providing the opportunity for an affordable mortgage and stability.
