100 peacebuilder hero teams, to raise $100k+ for local peacebuilding initiatives

The 2018 event will set a goal of raising at least $100k to lift up peacebuilding activities in the Miami Valley.  Team captains will select a Peacebuilder Hero and a local nonprofit (501-3-c) they wish to support through funds raised by their team.  75% of funds raised (after expenses) will be designated for their team's nonprofit.
