Health Mats Makes A Difference: The Eagles Autism Challenge Is On!
The Eagles Autism Challenge Is On!
We are proud to share our beautiful city of Philadelphia with Super Bowl Champions, The Eagles. In fact we keep them safe both on and off the field because they walk on our expertly designed mats on a daily basis. We are thrilled to say that on May 18, 2019, we will be walking with the Birds once again for the 2nd Annual Eagles Autism Challenge. The mission: raise funds to provide scientists with the means to conduct valuable research to solve the mysteries of the brain that cause autism.
The Health Mats Team
At Health Mats, we strive to make a difference in our community, which is why we are so excited for this philanthropic event. Last year the Challenge raised $2.5 million, and Team Health Mats raised $6613.00 of that total amount
In fact, our impact on the event went even farther than fund raising. There were over 3,000 participants who raised money, and enjoyed coming to an amazing kick off party the night before the event at the Lincoln Financial Field, but…the next day it rained. Soaking wet, the Eagles and all the good people who came out for the Challenge walked over the mats we put down at a last minute’s notice. Everyone came, including Health Mat’s business development and marketing manager Kris Smith and Kathy Ross from accounts receivable, who carried an umbrella while walking in the 5K, and had a great time despite the weather! If anything, the rain brought us all together in our common cause.
Needless to say, we’ve upped the ante this year for our fund raising goals. We are aiming not only to meet, but to surpass those numbers we achieved last year, which is why we are holding each member of our team to a high standard:
Every participant has a minimum fundraising goal to raise $350 each, but hopefully everyone will go above and beyond with the help of our loyal, generous, and socially responsible customers, and friends who donate to the Health Mats Team cause.

We only have three members on our team as of right now but we can waive the registration fees for up to 20 people who participate in the event.
