WHY CHARITY? Having an adventure you’ll never forget is one thing. But helping others while you’re at it? That’s where we come in - in fact, it’s the idea behind all SAC rallies! To achieve that goal, we ask every team to raise money for great charity projects. The money can go to projects that we have carefully vetted to ensure that all contributions go where they should—to the people who truly need them. Or you are free to pick a charity of your choice to donate to. You can donate 100% of your collected donations to the project of your choice. As part of our journey we have decided to evolve our charity program and partner with Movember as our charity partner for all of our rallies. The reason for this is that we want to unite the S.A.C community behind a single cause that resonates with almost all of us so we can together have a bigger impact. As part of our journey we have decided to evolve our charity program and partner with the Movember Foundation as our sole charity partner for all of our rallies.
