2022 Giving Tuesday Record & 2023 Race Raffle Results

Feeling all the feels after seeing SO much generosity last week from all y’all on Giving Tuesday!

Together we raised nearly $43,000 for Vermont Adaptive, AND set a new single-day giving record in our race’s history. Think of all the adaptive programs, equipment, and scholarships this will support in 2023!

From VT100 Race Director Amy Rusiecki:

“Giving Tuesday has become one of my favorite days each year – and it’s because of each of you and what you did. This is [a] day where my inbox is flooded with positive thoughts and messages, symbols of support, love, acceptance and inclusivity.”

From Vermont Adaptive’s Director of Communications Kim Jackson:

“How much do we love Vermont 100 runners? Well, a whole lot! You guys are amazing, and we’re so grateful you’re a part of the Vermont Adaptive community. Aside from the fact you’re all crazy for running the way you do – you’re also crazy for fundraising the way you do! Thank you from all of us!”
