1) Does my registration fee count toward my fundraising goal? YES!!!
2) Can my registration fee be waived since I'm fundraising? We will have a tiered rebate on registration fees based on the amount of fundraising accomplished:
$250.00 raised = 25% rebate on registration fee
$500.00 raised = 50% rebate on registration fee
$750.00 raised = 75% rebate on registration fee
$1,000.00 raised = 100% rebate on registration fee
If you earn a registration fee rebate and choose not to accept it, the value of that rebate will be credited to your fundraising page as a new donation in your name.
3) What is included in the price of my registration fee? Your fee includes a lift ticket for the day of the event, an extra lift ticket that can be used anytime in 2020 (by you or anyone else), food and drinks at the event, an event t-shirt, and a gift bag. The value of these items is approximately $200.
4) What impact does my registration fee and my fundraising efforts make? The 100K Vertical Challenge is the single largest fundraising event at STRIDE Adaptive Sports. You will be supporting kids with disabilities, combat injured-veterans, and a number of adults with disabilities. You can view our impact roadmap for an idea of the difference STRIDE can make with your help!
5) Is this event a race? No! The 100K is an endurance challenge and a fundraiser for STRIDE Adaptive Sports. No prizes are given for the individuals or teams that finish first. Safety is our first priority during the 100K, and those who treat the event like a race by tucking or otherwise skiing out of control will not be allowed to complete the event.
6) If I don’t meet the minimum donation requirements, will I be restricted from participating in the event? At its heart, the 100K is intended to be a fundraiser, so we established minimum fundraising objectives to ensure we meet that objective. The 100K staff will provide fundraising tips and assistance to help participants meet their minimums.
7) Do I have to raise money only from my friends and family or can get I sponsors, such as my work or other businesses? We encourage participants to seek out corporate sponsors. We have a list of sponsor levels and benefit packages that are available. Please contact Patrick Hayslett, Development Director for more information and supporting materials. (firstname.lastname@example.org or 518-598-1279).
8) Is there an age limit for participants? Yes. To participate in the 100K you must 16 years or older. However, if you are younger than 16 and would still like to get involved, we would love to have your help as a volunteer on the day of the event. Please contact email@example.com if you are interested in volunteering.
9) Is STRIDE Adaptive Sports a registered non-profit? Yes, STRIDE Adaptive Sports is a registered 501(c)(3) with non-profit status from the IRS. Therefore, all donations made to support your fundraising goals are tax deductible.
10) Are we free to ski the entire mountain to complete the 87 runs? Yes, the entire mountain will be open for qualifying runs. However, the base area of the High Speed Six is where we will be logging runs and is where we will be set up with drinks, snacks, etc.
11) Are costumes allowed? Absolutely. In fact, they are encouraged.
