*** If you do not want to fundraise, you can make a donation to your own page for the reamaining amount.  

Once you have signed up and paid the registration price (registration will go towards your goal), you will be prompted to choose your fundraising goal (it will be automatically populated for 1 leg at $2,800). Each leg is $2,800/person. Here is the breakdown of fundraising goals to participate in consecutive legs. You can pick which legs you would like to participate in.

  • 1 stage, Fundraising Goal $2,800/person. 
  • 5 stages (The whole 1,400 mile ride) Fundraising Goal $14,000/person (a minimum of $8,000 raised is required to ride in the entire ride). 

*** Note. Upon reaching each fundraising goal, you can choose to participate in any order. Example, if your team raises $5,800, you can choose to have 1 person participate in the 1st leg and 5th leg, or 3rd leg and 5th leg (or any order you wish with a maximum of 2 legs). Or if your team raises $5,800 you could have 2 people participate in 1 of any of the 5 legs.
