Charger Challenge

Charger Challenge History

The Charger Challenge Committee was formed in 2011 following the tragic loss of one of FCA’s Kindergarten students. The goal of the committee was to demonstrate the Core Virtue of compassion by raising funds for the affected family through a 5K run/walk. The Charger Challenge is now an annual event, benefitting families in the Casper community who are in need. The committee is also responsible for getting donations from individuals and businesses for a raffle that takes place during the event. Committee members should be available to help with pre-registration and race day events. Please contact Kenda Spicher if you are interested in being a part of this committee.

The beneficiary for our 10th Charger Challenge is the Natrona County Homeless Student's Fund

Nearly 300 students each year are identified as homeless in NCSD.

The Natrona County Homeless Students Fund, in cooperation with Mercer Family Resource Center, works to provide support and resources for these students.

In 2014 the Charger Challenge  benefited the NCSD Homeless Program. Around 400 students in our school district have been identified as homeless. (That’s about how many students are enrolled at Fort Caspar Academy!)  The NCSD Homeless Program provides community and educational services to those students and their families. Money raised in this year’s Charger Challenge will help to provide those services.
