Lifeline Loves Crosswinds Cares
2018 Planking Challenge

The 4th Annual Crosswinds Planking Challenge took place June 6, 2018, at Parkview Field at 5:30 p.m. This outdoor event challenged our community to get down and lift others up!

Money raised from this unique, healthy fundraiser benefits the Crosswinds Cares Scholarship Fund, a fund available for individuals and families in need of mental health support and counseling. Additionally, funds contributed provide limited financial assistance to eligible employees who are experiencing economic hardship due to emergency situations through the Lifeline Loves Crosswinds Cares Fund.
