FundRACERs are champion fundraisers for Tough Turtle and the Ithaca Children’s Garden, by committing to raise at least $100 critical funds used to inspire the next generation of environmental stewards.  Even modest amounts raised among friends, family, and coworkers add up to big impact in getting more children outdoors.

FundRACING Champions pay the regular registration fee and then raise additional funds through our partner fundraising site, GiveGab. After filling out the required registration form, you will be receive a confirmation email, with a link directing you to where you will start a fundraising campaign and support Ithaca Children’s Garden, inspiring the next generation of environmental stewards.

The benefits of becoming a FundRACER don’t end there! While the real reward will be bragging rights and a tremendous sense of accomplishment, top FundRACERs of all levels will qualify for impressive prizes including gift cards to local businesses, overnight stays at local accommodations, free classes at local gyms, and much more!

Our top FundRACERs will also get a weekly shout out on the Tough Turtle Facebook page, on the Tough Turtle website, and a weekly newsletter containing exclusive training tips provided by top local trainers.

EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR RAISED through Tough Turtle registration and FundRACING goes directly to support ICG’s mission of inspiring environmental stewardship by getting kids outside to make meaningful connections with the natural world.

Kelly Serbonich, one of the top FundRACER’s of 2016, tells us why she fundraises for Tough Turtle:

“The Ithaca Children’s Garden has been a staple of Noah’s childhood and magical place in our community. Noah and I are making it a ritual to do this race together each year. Please help us keep this gem a vibrant part of our community.”

Participation in ICG’s Tough Turtle has been vital in helping to raise over $200,000 for the Garden. These funds are used to support educational programs and direct services both in the Garden and out in  the Community. This direct programming reaches 8,200 children and families annually, and keep the Garden free and open to the public 365 days a year. In fact, ICG receives approximately 69,000 casual visitors each year. That is quite an impact!

Many Thanks from the ICG Team.
