Fundraising Rules and Regulations

Registrants agree to raise or contribute a total of $2,500 by September 15 to participate as a charity runner with Team CAF at the Empire State Building Run-Up.

If the athlete is not able to compete, withdrawal requests must be received in writing via e-mail to Anna at [email protected]. Without exception, all requests must be received on or before September 1 to be released out of the $2,500 fundraising commitment. All money raised up to that point is non-refundable. Transfers or deferments of entry are NOT permitted.

If an athlete is injured during training after September 1, he or she is still responsible for raising or providing the $2,500 minimum, regardless if able to compete. Additionally, if any portion of race and/or the entire event is canceled for any reason beyond the control of the Challenged Athletes Foundation, the athlete is still required to raise $2,500.
