In regions where an in-person packet pick-up is being offered, signs will be on display and available for pick-up in person. Otherwise, the sign will be mailed to your home prior to event day for you to display at your home.

Team Spirit KitEvery team that raises $5,000 by 9/24 will qualify for a Team Spirit Kit!

All teams that collectively raise $5,000 or more by 9/24, will be mailed a Team Spirit Kit for use during their personal celebration of the 2021 Fall Challenge. The kit will contain many of the items you would normally see on event day; balloons, a team banner, NBTS tattoos, among other goodies! We ask that you document your team spirit in photos and videos and share them to social media. We cannot be together in person, but this community is always together in spirit!
