About the Challenge


Embrace Pet Insurance presents the third annual EmbraceCLE Community Challenge, a community fundraising competition where select local charities compete to raise the most money for their non-profit. In addition to keeping any money raised for their charity, the top organizations will walk away with cash prizes from Embrace Pet Insurance.
