FUNDRAISING

HOW TO DONATE: 

1. Some of our Head & Neck Cancer, A Hard Thing to Swallow participants have set up individual fundraisers as "charity runners." This means that the runner has agreed to raise money on our behalf! Runners will then be eligible for special recognition based on the amount of money raised. If you'd like to contribute through a specific charity runner's fundraising page, search for the runner's name and continue the donation process. 
OR
2. Skip the search bar and simply choose a level of donation (or enter "other" amount) to donate directly to the race.

NOTE: All donations - whether through an individual charity runner's fundraising page or on this page - will go directly to the charity organization. You are not donating directly to a runner. 

HOW TO SIGN UP AS A CHARITY RUNNER:
1. Click the blue "Become a Charity Runner" button below. 
2. You will automatically receive a refund of your race registration if you raise $150 (the Youngling level). (Unchecking this box will disable the automatic refund.)
3. Personalize your fundraiser page by adding a photo and updating pre-filled sections.
4. Create your own custom URL, then share, share, share on social media and through email to all your friends, family, and fans! 
6. Because this race is sponsored by Partners in Care, every penny of race registrations, sponsorships, and fundraising goes DIRECTLY to patients in the local community where raised.

Thank you in advance for taking this small step to make a HUGE difference in our community!
