Accept the 50,000 Laps - One Unbreakable Spirit® Challenge Today!
Join members of the OI community in the 50,000 Laps – One Unbreakable Spirit® Challenge! Commit to swimming any number of laps to help us reach our goal of collectively swimming 50,000 laps – to represent the 50,000 people with OI in the United States. You can swim by yourself or with a team, all in one day or over the month of May. However you do it, we would like you to register online, log your laps and watch as we come together as members of a community and reach our goal of swimming 50,000 laps and raising $200,000 for the OI Foundation!
It's as easy as 1-2-3
- Click the buttons on the right to either sign up as an individual, start a new team or join an existing team and follow the prompts to register yourself as a swimmer.
- Once you have registered, you will be taken to your participant center. Here you can update your personal swim page. We've written a little bit to get you started, but you should take a moment to personalize your page with a picture of yourself and a greeting that explains how osteogenesis imperfecta has affected you. Set your personal swim and fundraising goals and make sure to come back to update the number of laps you have completed.
- Send out emails to all your family and friends to invite them to support you with a donation as you strive to complete your challenge. We've written a few emails to get you started, but your friends and family want to hear from you, so we encourage you to personalize your emails as well. You can even share your page on Facebook and Twitter.
