  • Form a team with your collegues who commit to running, swimming or biking for the cause. 
  • Team members’ mileage is added up and a certain amount per mile is donated. Donate and look for sponsors! 
  • When you register, your donation must be equal to $1 per kilometre for a minimum of 500 km. 
  • Each team member must raise a minimum of $100.
