One way to share the work of our agency and mission is to become a charity team fundraiser! Below are simple ways to fundraise for this event:

1. Sign up for the race and to become a fundraiser or start a fundraising team during registration: Reach out to your friends, family, colleagues, and local businesses to donate to help reach your team’s over-all goal while raising epilepsy awareness!

2.Set your goal: We suggest $500 for individuals and $2,000 for teams.
Those who raise $250+ become an official charity team member and earn a special charity team member t-shirt.
Those who raise $500+ get the charity team t-shirt and their race entry re-funded back to them.

2. Fund-Your-Run: Get sponsored for your run! Ask friends, family, and co-workers to sponsor you per mile. This is an easy way to get others involved and to quickly reach your personal fundraising goal.
