Let’s Rise for Science.

Now, more than ever, we see the need to support our communities and businesses through the challenges and changes caused by COVID-19. The distribution of the vaccine is just beginning, and we still have strides to make.

This is the #Rise4Science Challenge. Our goal is to help build public trust around the vaccination, encourage individuals to share their experience, all while giving back to our community’s nonprofits.

How to #Rise4Science

1  Donate in honor of a vaccinated individual or frontline organization

2  Share vaccination/donation experience using hashtag #Rise4Science

3  Pass on challenge to 4 peers, businesses, or organizations


Sponsor your employees, frontline organizations, and local nonprofits. Don’t forget to challenge 4 others!


Take a stand, get vaccinated, and challenge 4 friends. Utilize “#rise4science” on social media and together our voice will be heard.
