On your mark, get set, GO! The NetWorks Challenge is now underway!


We are so excited to once again host the NetWorks Challenge. During the next 3 months, you have the opportunity to be a Champion and make a donation to the CHEST Foundation. Every time you contribute, you can designate a NetWork of your choice to benefit from your gift. Each NetWork is eligible to receive travel grants to CHEST 2019 based on the amount raised. Last year, we more than doubled the number of early career clinician travel grants to attend CHEST 2018. This year, we want to raise the bar again. Don’t delay, make a donation today by visiting and be a Champion for your NetWork!

Length: This year, the NetWorks Challenge will span 3 months. Contributions made between April 1 and June 30 count toward your NetWork’s fundraising total! Just be sure to list your NetWork when making your contribution on Additionally, any contributions made to the CHEST Foundation during your membership renewal will count toward your NetWorks total amount raised - no matter when your membership is up for renewal. Contributions made in this manner after June 30 will count toward your Network’s 2020 amount raised.

Each month has a unique theme related to CHEST, so be sure to watch our social media profiles to engage with us and each other during the drive.

Prizes: This year, every NetWork is eligible to receive travel grants to CHEST 2019 in New Orleans based on the amount raised by the NetWork. Our final winners – the NetWork with the highest amount raised and the NetWork with the highest participation rate, will each receive two additional travel grants to CHEST 2019. Plus, the NetWork with the highest amount raised over the course of the challenge receives an additional prize – a seat in a CHEST Live Learning course of the winner’s choosing, offered at CHEST’s Innovation, Simulation, and Training Center in Glenview, Illinois.
