The results are in for #FoolsWalk131! Motley Fool members, employees, and supporters raised over $33,000 for local charter school network DC Prep in an endeavor that caught the attention of FitBit, LifeSpan Fitness, and even DC’s local NBC4. As part of the Fool’s employee-only challenge, 50 Fools “competed” for Amazon gift cards, walking an average of 51.7 miles per day to reach 2583.6 total miles in 5 days. While they weren’t limited to treadmills, Fools could also show support by redeeming gold via our employee recognition system for donations.
It’s safe to say #FoolsWalk131 was a success, but it’s not too late to participate! We’ve left the #FoolsWalk131 fundraising page up for now, where you can show support for DC Prep as a one-time or recurring donation. Thanks for an awesome – and very active – week; read more on #FoolsWalk131 here!
