Events that Inspire Hope and Improve Lives in Anchorage
Your involvement in community events helps create a thriving community for us all. Everything from GRAD CHALK, Day of Caring Food Drive, Graduation Station and Free Tax Prep to fundraisers like the UPS vs. FEDEX Softball Game, your time, energy and resources advance United Way’s work and make measurable, lasting change for our community.
Some events have even set records! We achieved the GUINNESS WORLD RECORD™ title for Longest fist bump relay on August 20, 2016 thanks to the hundreds of people who joined us to take a stand to end homelessness in Anchorage!
