Can we fundraise to help offset the fee?
Yes! This year you have the opportunity to fundraise directly for your athlete. You will receive 50% of whatever we raise from the fundraiser you set-up. If more than one athlete sets up a program the 50% will be divided by the amount of families who participate in setting up and running the event. Ideas include restaurant nights – Modern Market, Esters, and Garbanzo.
