Rise for Rescue

The Rescue Helicopter is changing lives in our community every day and we are asking participants to change their own lives each day in November by taking on the Rise For Rescue challenge.

Rise For Rescue requires participants to complete a minimum of 30 minutes of activity every day in November at sunrise (or when you Rise Up).
