UPLIFT San Diego 2021 Step Up Team Challenge benefits local organizations

DOWNTOWN SAN DIEGO (KUSI)- Uplift San Diego’s Step Up Team Challenge is a super fun way to raise funds for the Homeless Services & Student Services of UPLIFT + another favorite 501c3 Nonprofit Partner of a Team Captain’s choice. UPLIFT has partnered with local nonprofits whom will receive half the revenue their teams raise now through the end of September, with funds distribution to Partner Nonprofits by October 8, 2021. Every Team gets an automatic Start Up donation of $1,000, so $500 to Partner Nonprofit,  $500 to Uplift.
