Team fundraising plays a vital role in the success of the Doggy Dash! Teams not only raise the majority of our dollars for the event, but they create a sense of community, spirit and overall fun! The top three fundraising teams will be recognized and awarded during the opening remarks at the Doggy Dash 5k/2k starting line (@10:00 AM)! Teams will also win special prizes for the “Largest Pack” and “Loudest Bark” (most team spirit) after the event concludes (winner notifications will be sent post-event and prizes awarded the following week after the Doggy Dash).
NEW THIS YEAR and IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER:
New this year: A VIP tent and lounge area will be open to all sponsors, individuals and teams who reach a monetary fundraising goal set by event staff and team members (based on individual team goals). Refreshments, giveaways, chairs, tables and dog rest areas will be provided!
Prize pick-up: You will have several opportunities to pick up your prizes, both before the Doggy Dash and also on event day. (Dates, times, maps and instructions for pick-up coming soon).
Recognition: The top three individual fundraisers and top three fundraising teams will be announced before the start of the 5k/2k walk and will lead the Doggy Dash pack (10:00am)! Prize packs for each winner/team will be ready for pick-up on event day in the designated prize pick-up area (details coming soon). Team contest category winners will be determined and notified post-event (“Largest Pack” and “Loudest Bark” contests).
Leader boards will be posted online that have up-to-date information on money raised in real time to keep up-to-date on who is leading the pack!
Deadlines: All cash or check donations counting towards a winning total must be received/hand-delivered by close of business (5:00pm), Friday April 7th, 2017. Online donations counting towards a winning total must be inputted by midnight, Friday April 7th, 2017.
Donations will still be accepted after the cut-off dates, of course, but they will not be used for determining which top three individuals or teams are awarded on event day (however, day-of and post-event donations will be counted towards individual prize earnings through April 14th, 2017).
