The Sac Century Challenge is the Rotary Club of Sacramento’s main fundraising event. In the past seven years, 200 volunteers gave hundreds of hours of service and have raised over $550,000 in donations!

This 7th Annual Sac Century Challenge will be held over 100 hours beginning Thursday, October 1st to Monday, October 5th. This year’s event benefits the Sacramento Children’s Home Crisis Nursery.


About the Event

The 2020 Sac Century Challenge is now a 100-Hour Challenge where a participant cycles as much as they like – a full century, metric century, half century, or fun ride distance – or walks, runs or engages in any other activity of their own choosing. Just get physical – between 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 1st and 12 noon on Monday, October 5th. Registrants will receive great Sac Century “swag” including a themed medal, backpack, neck gaiter and vendor discount card, all for the reduced registration fee of $50. Best of all, whether you ride a century or a few miles with your family or do another physical activity, you are supporting kids and families served by Sacramento’s only Crisis Nursery. Now more than ever the Sacramento Children’s Home Crisis Nursery needs our help so we hope you will join us and “Ride or Get Active for a Reason”! After all, we are all looking for a great reason to get outside – and what better reason than to raise funds to support children and families in our community!

We also encourage all participants to consider becoming a Challenge Champion to help raise additional funds on behalf of the Sacramento Children’s Home Crisis Nursery. Challenge Champions receive incentive prizes as they reach certain fundraising benchmarks, including a 2020 Sac Century jersey when they raise just $350 for the Sacramento Children’s Home Crisis Nursery cause.

We hope you will join us in supporting this vital community program!
