Jessica Kury (in her own words): I am the Director of Special Events for Special Olympics PA and currently running a virtual fundraising event for the organization that centers around movement & activity for athletes of all ability.
The event is called the AMRAP Challenge. The AMRAP (As Many Rounds As Possible) Challenge brings persons with and without intellectual disabilities together on virtual teams to raise both funds and awareness for nearly 20,000 Special Olympics athletes. The virtual AMRAP Challenge encourages participants statewide to execute 5 exercises (10 reps each) as many times as possible within 10 minutes. These exercises include push-ups, squats, lunges, mountain climbers, and plank jacks. Additionally, participants can choose to join one of the nine unified regional teams captained by SOPA (Special Olympics PA) athletes.
