Sign up to become a charity runner and help fundraiser on behalf of EA. All you have to do is solicit you friends, family and your social media networks asking for donations. We’ve set the personal goal of only $250. If you reach/exceed this goal you’ll become an official charity team member which earns you a special charity team unisex 3/4-sleeve baseball t-shirt. If you reach $500 in donations you will receive the 3/4-sleeve baseball tee and your race registration fee will be credit back to you as well. Our goal is to raise $6,000 in donations and with your help, we’ll be able to raise these dollars which are so critical to help fund our programs and services, which are vital to helping those who are living with seizure disorders in NEO. Also, there will be awards for overall top fundraiser.
There is strength in numbers, consider forming a team and encourage others to join you in the race. By forming a team, fundraising is easier and helps to increase epilepsy awareness. Our suggested team goal is $1,000. Special awards will be presented to the largest team and top overall fundraising team.
*To be guaranteed a t-shirt on event day, fundraising goals must be met by Aug. 28.
