It takes a village, and we thank you for being part of ours.

Once you’re there you’ll be able to pick from the following options. 

fundRACING Individual

As an individual fundRACER, you’ll raise $200 to support the cause (or more if you’re ambitious!!) We’ll make sure you have all the tools you need to hit your goal. You’ll feel great knowing you’re pushing your limits while supporting a critical community cause.


Since you’re all racing together, you’ll be fundraising together too! As a family of 3-6, you’ll raise a minimum of $400 – but don’t let us stop you from raising more!  We’ll make sure you have all the tools you need to hit your goal.  You’ll feel great knowing you’re pushing your limits while supporting a critical community cause.

 Got little ones? You can also sign them up for our Tough Turtle JR. at the same time. Don’t worry there’s no heat times for them, so they can run at anytime.
