Incentives:
Earned incentive items will be shipped 4 – 6 weeks post-event.

Level 1 – Participants who raise $60 – $99: TBD
Level 2 – Participants who raise $100 – $299: TBD
Level 2 – Participants who raise $300 – $749: TBD
Level 3 – Participants who raise $750 and more: TBD

Note: A participant needs to raise that money independently to meet a particular incentive level. For example, if there are three people in a family and between them, they raise $100, this does not meet Level 1. Person A must pay the entry fee plus raise the balance to meet the $100 incentive level. Combined entry fees for all three family members plus the balance to meet $100 do not qualify for an incentive item.
