The Challenge is On: April 2nd – 6th

In order for Burcham to play a more integral part in creating a healthier lifestyle for our students, we are introducing a new and exciting fundraiser and fitness event! The President’s Challenge Program! This program, in existence since 1966, informs and inspires children on their journey to be active through awards and recognition programs. We are coupling the program along with our fundraising efforts to help provide additional enrichment programs that benefit every child at Burcham. Our goal is to reach $10,000! Please help!

Your child’s participation will be during school hours and coincide with their physical education program. The President’s Challenge includes five activities that measure strength and endurance, cardio respiratory endurance, speed, agility and flexibility. The month of March will be utilized to familiarize each student with all of the activities and the goal levels for their age group. Students can win prizes based on levels of donations but every student who participates will receive an award based on their level of achievement.

How can you support the students?

  1. Make a donation
  2. Volunteer the week of April 2-6

If you would like to volunteer, please send an email to or leave a voicemail message at 562-344-5610

If you are a local business or community member who would like to support this fitness event, please contact us at or leave a voicemail message at 562-344-5610. Thank you!

The Challenge is on!
