2018 SHN March Madness Bracket Challenge – Join Now

It’s that time of the year again! Senior Housing News is excited to bring back our March Madness Bracket Challenge. We’re inviting all of our daily email subscribers to create and submit their own brackets to bravely compete against other subscribers’ brackets.

Participating in this year’s tournament challenge is for a good cause. Let’s go over the basics:

How do I join?


Visit the ESPN Tournament Challenge homepage. Sign in, or create a profile with ESPN. Then, join our bracket group by clicking this link or searching SHN 2018 March Madness.

What’s the password?



When does my bracket need to be completed?

Make your picks no later than 11 AM Central Time on Thursday, March 16, 2018.

Why should I participate?

Because it’s an official excuse to watch several hours of basketball on a Thursday and Friday afternoon. And you can claim bragging rights.

But more importantly, SHN will make a $500 donation to the winner’s charity of choice.*

*Please note that SHN has the right to refuse a charity if it does not meet certain standards, including but not limited to being a bona fide, tax exempt 501(c)(3) public charity. If the chosen charity does not meet the requirements, SHN will donate $500 to the Alzheimer’s Association.

Other requirements:

The winner must be a daily email subscriber of Senior Housing News. If your grandmother, wife, husband, step-brother or next-door neighbor also wants to submit a bracket, that’s fine — just sign them up for the daily email first!

No basketball knowledge is required to join. It’s perfectly acceptable to predict winning teams based on jersey color alone, or whichever team has the coolest mascot.

Still have questions? Email [email protected] before March 16 and we’ll try to help.

Good luck, and may the best bracket win!
