What is a Virtual Racer?  Want to participate but can’t be in Utica or can’t race on September 21, 2014?  Become a Virtual Racer.  Race where you are and when you want!  Race on your own or gather with a group of friends.  You decide.  We are so happy you are joining us no matter where you are.  Make sure to send us a snapshot of you or your group for us to share.

Registration Options:





Create a Team to Support Haiti

Teams of 5 or more can be made up of any sort of group including families, camps, clubs, organizations, etc.   Groups can be local or from all over.   How many states can we get to help those in need in Haiti?  Check out our map on our fundraising page here showing who across the country is involved!  Remember, not all members have to walk, run or roll on the same route or the same day!  Prizes will be given for teams with the most members and teams with the highest fundraising amount.

Encourage each member to bring a friend recruit two sponsors each. Send emails and use social media messages to let people know they can be a virtual racer if they can’t be there in Utica, NY or on September 21.  Or they can donate directly to your team fundraising page.

Use our email tool and social media links  to invite your teammates.

Fundraising

Your fundraising will directly affect lives in Haiti. We recommend an individual fundraising goal of $100 and team fundraising goals of $500.  Offset your registration fee and raise more to support those in Haiti. Start your fundraising campaign and spread the word to family and friends.

Click to view our fundraising page here where you can create your own fundraising page. Set your goal and watch your fundraising thermometer fill for Haiti.   After that, watch our website for how your donations were put to good use.  We can truly make a difference!

Prizes will be given for teams with the most members and teams with the highest fundraising amount.
