The Shuffle Gives Back Program allows participants to join together on Charity Teams and raise dollars for the causes they care about! More than $30,000 is granted out each year through the Shuffle Gives Back, and at least 50% of Shamrock Shuffle participants register on a Charity Team! The Community Foundation was established as at the grass-roots level; we are so proud to continue that legacy through the Shuffle Gives Back, ensuring everyone has the opportunity to participate in philanthropy. 

GENERAL INFORMATION

There must be a minimum of 15 team members in order for the charity to receive a grant from Shuffle Gives Back. Grants will be made in the amount of $150 for the first 15 members and $10/member thereafter.
2 child registrations = 1 team member

REGISTRATION & PACKET PICK-UP

We offer Group Pick-up for our Charity Teams. This request, with a list of participants (first and last name), must be submitted to kate.feldmann@wclfoundation.org by Wednesday, March 6th. If you choose this option, please communicate with your team to avoid any confusion and ensure members have not made plans to pick-up their own packets. Group Pick-up is entirely optional, and we recommend that you distribute to your team PRIOR TO race morning if using this option.

TEAM CAMPS

With more than 5000 people on The Square race morning, it is THE PLACE to be! Teams who request a Team Camp will receive a spot along Charity Team Row near The Square where you can gather as a team, distribute information about the charity or organization you’re supporting, and display your Shuffle Spirit!

The top 5 teams by participant numbers registered by the end of the day on February 19th will receive a tent for their use on race morning!

Team Camps will be approximately 10x10
Teams may bring their own tent, table and chairs OR we can arrange rentals for you that will be placed at your Team Camp on race morning. Cost: tent $60, table $8, chairs $4
Reservations for Team Camps and rentals MUST be made by February 22nd
Teams MAY NOT sell anything at the event
Team Camps must be set up on site by 6:45 AM race morning
Vehicles should be unloaded from the parking lot behind The Square or the Library parking lot. You CAN NOT leave vehicles in these areas for the duration of the event. Be prepared to carry materials approximately 150 yards.
A site map will be provided closer to race day indicating where your team camp will be located.

Payment for rentals will be due to the Community Foundation by Friday, March 1st.

VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENT

As you can imagine, the Shamrock Shuffle requires many volunteers to run smoothly. We’re asking our Charity Teams to help that effort by providing 3 volunteers each as part of your eligibility to earn a grant for your charity or organization. Volunteers must be committed by March 1st and should register online via Sign Up Genius

You may provide a banner to display on race day near the start and finish lines. We will be using bike rack fencing and will display Charity Team banners along them for those teams who choose to take advantage of this opportunity.
