FCCU Kicks Off the 4th Annual Flamingo Challenge

First Commerce is excited to kick off another great #FlamingoChallenge this October. The #FlamingoChallenge is a month-long community fundraiser that encourages businesses, non-profits, schools, other organizations, and individuals to have some fun while also showing support for local cancer patients. Since its initial launch four years ago, the #FlamingoChallenge has raised more than $200,000 to support local patients in South Georgia and North Florida.

This challenge supports Archbold Foundation in Thomasville, Georgia; Southern Regional Medical Center Foundation in Valdosta, Georgia; and Tallahassee Memorial Hospital Foundation in Tallahassee, Florida. Funds raised through the #FlamingoChallenge directly benefits local breast cancer patients in all of our markets.

Participants can claim a flock of pink flamingos, place them in front of their home or business, make a pledge to donate or fundraise and then post pictures with their flamingos on social media. All participants are encouraged to share their fun, creative photos with their flocks on social media and challenge others to join in the fun. In order for the community to follow the flocks on social media, participants are encouraged to use hashtags #FlamingoChallenge and #PinkPower in their posts and tag @FirstCommerceCU.

An important aspect of the #FlamingoChallenge is that all money raised will stay local and benefit local cancer patients. To learn more about the #FlamingoChallenge, how you can participate, or to donate online, visit FirstCommerceCU.org/Flamingo.
