 100% Program Challenge2017 Legacy Gala

2017 5k Run for Research

100% Challenge

100% Program Challenge

The 100% Program Challenge is an annual competition that pits residency programs against each other to determine which program can raise the most money per resident for the Foundation for Osteopathic Emergency Medicine (FOEM).


  • The competition will run from July 1, 2017 – October 1, 2017.   Contributions received after the deadline will not be counted.
  • In order to qualify, the residency program must have 100% participation – that means every single resident in the program must contribute at least $5.00 to the challenge.
  • Checks must specify “100% Program Challenge” on the memo line in order to be counted for the competition.
  • A list of current residents that have contributed must be included with the check.   If a list is not included that accounts for all residents in a program, 100% participation cannot be determined and the program will not be eligible to win.
  • In order to make this competition fair to residency programs of all sizes, the winner will be determined by the average donation per resident.   This number will be determined by dividing the total donation from the residency program by the number of residents in that program.  It is not the total amount that counts, but the average per resident.  ($500 from a program with 20 residents = $25/resident > $500 from a program with 25 residents = $20/resident). 

This is a fun competition that encourages first time donors to get involved with the Foundation’s mission.
