Here’s how it works: One raffle ticket is awarded for every $10 raised, so if you raise $100 you receive 10 raffle tickets.The more money you raise, the more raffle tickets you get!
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
We have a special prize package for the participant who raises the most: HEAD-TO-TOE BROOKS RUNNING GEAR! We’re talking total outfitting: hat, shirt, shorts (or pants), socks, and shoes.
Competition is fierce for top fundraiser. Our top three Cancer Haters are committed to raising much-needed funds for cancer research and are willing to do some crazy things to incentivize friends and family to help make a difference.
Brian Burk was our top fundraiser last year and hopes to outdo his previous donation total of $1,800. Want to see this man run 13.1 miles in a TUTU!? Of course you do. Here’s how: If Brian reaches $1,000 in donations here before Sunday, he’ll run the Crawlin’ Crab Half Marathon sporting a bright red, frilly tutu. (Stay tuned to his blog, Brian’s Running Adventures for more fundraising shenanigans.)
Brian Lamprecht is running in honor of his father who is currently battling esophageal cancer. It’s perhaps convenient the Cancer Hater Challenge is happening close to Halloween because Brian is willing to dress up in a most unusual way. Find out what he has up his sleeve here.
Gary Rauchfuss, who will be Skyping in during the event from across the pond (talk about dedication to the cause), promises to don a PINK TUTU while sweating it out on the treadmill. If he raises more than $500, he’ll shave his head too! Let’s make it happen! Give here.
Many thanks to all who have already donated in support of the Cancer Hater Challenge and VCU Massey Cancer Center! Whether you give $10 or $100, you are making a real difference in the lives of those affected by cancer.
