On Friday, Aug. 1 Amity Teen Center teens and staff participated in the “Dare Me For Charity” fundraising event in Hartford.
Non-profit organizations in 32 cities will take part in these events this summer.
The challenge was to jump from a high platform onto an airbag. The platform could go up to 40 feet (the equivalent of about 4 stories).
Sponsors bought $15.00 tickets that gave each contestant 3 chances to jump. It was all very safe. The Teen Center completed a total of 117 jumps!
One of the ATC sponsors was Liberty Bank, which sponsored 10 jumpers and gave each contestant a backpack.
The Teen Center was awarded $290.00 in prize money.
