BENEFITING: Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Inc.
Yeah, that's right.. we race crabs for charity :) The Annapolis Crab Derby is a fun and interactive way to participate and donate to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) and LAUNCH! Annapolis. The CBF is the largest independent conservation organization dedicated solely to saving the Bay. The event is organized and hosted by the Maryland Tech Council and LAUNCH! Annapolis, a non-profit organization that connects entrepreneurs with resources to start and grow their companies. You can register as a Crab Jockey on this page. It's free as long as you hit the fundraising minimum of $200 per Jockey. As a Crab Jockey, you receive a t-shirt, your company's logo and link on the LAUNCH! Annapolis website. Also, the Jockey that raises the most money, will have the opportunity to address the crowd on the day of the event. Or you can help sponsor the event!
