TdS_fundraising.jpgFundraising

Everyone (18+) who is riding or walking is required to raise $100. Children under age 18 ride or walk for free. You will be prompted to create a personal fundraising page when you register. Creating a team is a great way to invite family and friends to join the fun!

If you are signing up to only attend the BBQ/Party, you will still need to create a personal fundraising page when you register. You can use this account to fundraise, but it’s not required.
