Why must I pay to register when I will fundraise?
CCEdFund requires a donation from you as a sign of your commitment to the team (paid when you register; does not count towards your $650 fundraising requirement). We ask for this contribution now instead of ever asking you to pay the balance between what you raised and the $650 fundraising minimum. Also, your donation helps us cover the cost of registering you to run ($99.00) so that more of the money you raise goes directly to our students.
Your Pledge: Raise $650 & Run the Marathon.
After you register, it is time to start training and fundraising! Set up your personal fundraising page:
We encourage you to include a story about why you are running to help send impoverished students to school in Cambodia. We are happy to provide some information about CCEdFund as you fundraise or visit www.ccedfund.org
to meet our students.
CCEdFund requires each team member to raise a minimum of $650 by midnight Eastern time August 5th in order to run with our team. Simply, if you do not meet your fundraising goal, you will lose your spot to run the Marathon.
But, we are here to help you fundraise so we will help you reach your goal!
CCEdFund’s platform for registration and fundraising, active.com, provides some training and fundraising guides – please use them! Train safely and effectively – we want our entire team to complete the race!
CCEdFund will host a pre-race pasta gathering location and time TBD.
As you train, we would love to hear from you! We hope that you’ll keep us updated and write a post for our blog
to share your successes and challenges as you train and fundraise.
