Giving Tuesday at Vermont Adaptive (2022)
Friends of Vermont 100 and Vermont Adaptive –
For over 30 years, our race has been one of the largest annual fundraisers for Vermont Adaptive Ski & Sports, an organization that offers folks of all ages and abilities the opportunity to participate in inclusive outdoor activities regardless of their ability to pay.
As the world’s first trail and ultra race to support and recognize visually and mobility impaired athletes with their own division, we believe in what Vermont Adaptive does for its participants every day and we encourage your continued support.
This Giving Tuesday – 11/29/22
EVERY DOLLAR donated will be matched (up to $50,000)!
What does this mean for you?
- For those who qualify for a 2023 lottery bypass and want to fundraise, your fundraising can start now! Email email@example.com to have your fundraising page created and start earning our sweet fundraising swag (see: Perks).
- For those who want to gain entry to the 2023 VT100, we are holding our annual raffle to win either one (1) lottery bypass or one (1) free entry. How it works: Donate to Vermont Adaptive on Giving Tuesday. For every $20 you donate, or that is donated in your honor, you get one (1) ticket to bypass the lottery/waitlist. If you win, you gain entry into the 2023 VT100 but still pay the registration fee. For every $100 you donate, or that is donated in your honor, you will get one (1) ticket towards free entry to into the 2023 VT100. If you win, you will skip the lottery/waitlist and will not have to pay the registration fee. For someone to donate in your honor, they simply need to make a donation, then list your name in the ‘personal message’ area.
- For those who simply want to help increase our impact on the programming and financial support Vermont Adaptive can offer to participants, you can make your donation here and know that on Giving Tuesday it goes twice as far!
- Team Run 2 Empower – As always, there is an opportunity for runners to gain entry to the 2023 VT100 by committing to fundraising at least $1,500 for Vermont Adaptive through our Team Run 2 Empower program. More information on the Team is posted here. Giving Tuesday is an excellent day to kickstart your mission.
