Anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian accompany them at all times during the Event or any other JDRF sponsored programming (trainings, social events, etc.)

How much time do I have to commit to this?
How much time you train is completely up to you. Your time commitment will depend on your chosen distance to ride and your fitness level. Your JDRF Coach can help you determine the best time commitment for your fitness level. We encourage all those riding to take advantage of the nice summer weather and try to get on your bike as much as possible!

Does the $50 registration fee count towards my fundraising?
Yes! The $50 required registration fee will be the first donation to your Team JDRF fundraising campaign.

Is there a fundraising minimum?

Is there a deadline for meeting my fundraising minimums?
Yes. We understand that this may be the most money you have ever attempted to raise, and you may feel unsure about whether you will be able to do it. If you follow the recommended guidelines and use the fundraising resources JDRF provides, you will be more successful than you think! Contact your JDRF Staff Member if you need additional assistance brainstorming ideas to help you reach your goals.

What if I need to drop from the race?
Any participant dropping after September 7, 2019, for any reason, will be responsible for completing 75% of their fundraising minimum, in addition to payments to JDRF for any costs incurred for accommodations arranged for them for the race. Registration fees are non-refundable. Any donations received will remain in the participant’s account. Transferring of money to any other participant’s account is not permitted.

Isn’t it hard to meet the fundraising requirement?
Not according to our past participants. Once you start contacting people, you will be surprised how quickly the money (and the admiration) rolls in. JDRF has created powerful online fundraising tools to make it easier for you to reach your goal, and your JDRF staff member will help you with materials, ideas and support as you meet and exceed your goal.

Will I have help fundraising?
Yes! Every participant has the support and help of the fundraising experts at their local chapter who are with them every step of the way, from the first donation to the day you exceed your minimum and increase your goal. In addition, the Team JDRF endurance program has a library of tools and tips that every registered runner has access to.

If you have any questions about your ability to meet your fundraising minimum, contact Michal Biletzki at mbiletzki@jdrf.org - we are happy to talk fundraising with you!
