Sean and Kyle of Red Light Challenge have been giving back to their communities since they started performing in 2013. In the spring of 2014, the brothers decided to create their own community-involvement program called “Red Light Challenge, Green Light Go”. This program is a fun and inspirational non-profit school assembly program that consists of music, student-interaction, and a positive message that empowers students to achieve their goals. The program is an interactive performance that highlights themes such as teamwork, determination, and respect. The band has organized multiple events that have taken place at schools, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and more.
In April 2020, Red Light Challenge worked with Valiant Productions in Boise to put on a livestream concert on Facebook Live to raise money for the National MS Society during quarantine since one of their major annual events (Walk MS) got canceled. The concert raised funding and was seen by over 6,000 people. The band has performed for Walk MS and Bike MS every year since 2017.
In 2019, the band teamed up with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America with their music video release for “Why Won’t You”. The band donated multiple one-year memberships to a local chapter based on YouTube and Facebook views for the video. They also put on a Christmas concert for the Club after the release of their music video for “Keep You Warm”.
In 2017, Red Light Challenge organized a Tribute Concert for late singer Chris Cornell. This free show was entirely donation-based and all funds earned from the event (approximately $1,000) were split between the Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline and the Boise All-Ages Movement Project.
In 2015, the band also partnered with the National Kidney Foundation of Hawaii, co-writing the song for the foundation’s documentary, organizing an elementary school assembly, and volunteering for the Kidney Camp.
Red Light Challenge has also participated in numerous community events and activities from the start. They have volunteered for many organization including the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho, the Special Olympics and the Leo Club, and have even donated proceeds to public school arts programs.
