Your energy and enthusiasm at Oakland High School and virtually from around the world were truly inspiring. We laughed, sweated, and supported our youth with the Ever Forward Club's #MillionMaskMovement.

Your participation has made a real difference, and we're grateful for each step you took with us. We're still receiving donations, so there's still time to contribute and help us reach more young people. Every bit helps!

Thank you for your unwavering support and for being part of our community. Let's keep the momentum going!

Additionally, we challenge schools to fully register a team of at least 10 students/staff.

For the top 3 schools that fully register the most participants, we have over $5,000 worth of prizes (along with bragging rights of course):

First Place: Free Taking Off The Mask Assembly

Second Place: Free Taking Off The Mask Box Set

Third Place: 10 copies of EFC: The Adventure Card Game
