Points & Prizes

Run day is always an awesome experience. This year, we're adding ways to have some fun in the time leading up to the Run. Check out the activities below and in the “Manage My Page” section of your personal page. You could earn points for posting pictures/videos, sharing on social media, and telling a story - as well as fundraising and recruiting friends and family to participate. Every activity you complete gets you closer to being entered into the Sweepstakes for a chance to win one or more prizes. Be sure your points are properly documented on your personal page.

Points can be earned through April 21st. Winners will be notified the week of April 22nd and prizes will be available for pickup at the Run on April 27th or will be emailed or mailed to winners who are virtual participants or entered the Sweepstakes through email.
