The fundraising process is easy! We’ve cre
ated a easy to use fundraising packet for your convenience.


We have also provided you with a Fundraising form to help you keep track of your sponsorships.


**Create your own Fundraising Page online as an Individual or Team.**


Teams and Groups
We encourage participants to walk or run with a team for fun or competition, but it isn’t required by any means. If you’d like to participate with friends, family and/or co-workers, then you should strongly consider creating a team.


There’s a “team/group name” option at registration… just ask your teammates to use the same team name when registering. 

If you're not a runner, we always need volunteers! To learn more about volunteering email us!
