What is the Delaware Charity Challenge?
The Delaware Charity Challenge is a fun and unique team-based fundraising event that allows for teams and charities to race to raise awareness and money for their cause. The Second Annual Delaware Charity Challenge Race will take place Saturday, April 30, 2016 at Brandywine Creek State Park in Wilmington, Delaware. The Race to Raise funds will take place February 1, 2016 until 11:59 p.m. on April 29, 2016.
The Delaware Charity Challenge is a win-win-win opportunity for any charity. Through the teams and the event itself, charities have the opportunity to raise money and awareness for their cause. Leading up to the event, teams will race to raise the most money for their selected charity. The charities that raise the most money will win additional prize money for their charity. On the day of the Delaware Charity Challenge, teams will race to win, and the winning teams will win additional money for their selected charities. Nonprofits are encouraged to build and promote their own teams in the Delaware Charity Challenge.
How it works: Teams will select their charity of choice when they register for the Delaware Charity Challenge. From February 1, 2016 to April 29, 2016, teams are encouraged to raise money for their selected charity. All monies raised by the team will go directly toward the selected charity. The three charities that raise the most money during this period will win prize money, which will be pooled from race sponsorships and registration fees. On April 30, 2016, the day of the Delaware Charity Challenge, teams will race in one of five races: a women's team 5K race, a men's team 5K race, a co-ed 5K team race, a fun 5K run/walk, or the Adventure Challenge Relay race. The winning team the competitive races will also win additional prize money for their charity, which will be pooled from race sponsorships and registration fees.
