Saturday 4th March, 2017

Welcome to Chappy Challenge 2017!



This Challenge Event Program offers the fantastic opportunity to cycle or run/walk through the amazing Fassifern Valley while supporting the great work that Chaplains do in our district. Runs and rides offer the diversity to cater for kids, fun runners or the serious athlete. Come and support Chaplains and have fun. Find out about your event by checking the Routes on this site. Once you have decided on your event, you can register yourself and your family and encourage your friends to register and join the fun.






Keep fit, have fun & Support Chaplaincy

Chaplaincy is an essential part of education in the Fassifern area. Chaplains operate in all our State schools and private schools in and around the Boonah area. The funds raised  by the event are used to offset the short fall in funds provided by the Federal Government to employ chaplains. The community is responsible for fundraising the balance of the funds required to support this important service. You can help simply by being involved in Chappy Challenge 2017.
