The Fun of Fundraising

Don’t forget, kids can fundraise too! Every year young people take pride in saving pennies, having lemonade sales, asking friends and families to donate and other creative ways to help support the cause—moreover, their success is making a huge impact on our ability to save lives! As individual fundraisers or part of an official Race team, children are entitled to qualify for the same fundraising prizes as adults (unless prize is inappropriate for a child under 12, in which case the parent will be notified).
