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. 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 to win prizes. Be sure to check out the activities in the "Manage My Page" section of your personal page and complete them to earn points.

Points can be earned through April 23rd. Winners will be announced the week of April 24th and prizes will be available for pickup at the Run on April 29th or will be mailed if you are a virtual runner.
