What happens if I don’t hit the fundraising Minimum?

Cyclists that don’t reach the fundraising minimum will not be able to pick up their package or participate in the bike. Please connect with Quyn ( or 306-994-8737) for fundraising tips or volunteer opportunities.

I am on a team- can we just fundraise enough as a team to cover one another’s $500 minimum?

The $500 fundraising minimum is per participant- team donations and team members cannot cover the fundraising minimum for others. Donations must be kept under the person/team that the donor originally intended- they cannot be moved between participants.
