Runners are encouraged to promote fundraising in support of "The Cancer Foundation of the Florida Keys", which fights prostate, breast, colon and other cancers and directly helps those living in the Keys who have been severely impacted by these diseases. Donations support free screenings, educational outreach and financial and medical support. You may earn a waiver of your entry fee or a full refund of your paid race entry fee by raising funds in the minimum amounts published below. Any runner in the individual competitions, or team in the relay races, is eligible.
For 2024, the minimum collected donation amounts needed to earn the refund are:
100-mile individual race: $1,240
50-mile individual race: $1,060
50-kilometer individual race: $920
100-mile relay team: $3,600
50-mile relay team: $1,920
Beginning your fundraising campaign is easy. As part of the registration process, you will have the option of setting-up your fundraising page. Alternatively, you may click on the link below to do so. When people donate online, ask them to select your name in the Fundraiser list, then simply donate. You will be credited automatically.
Some fundraisers prefer to raise money under a pseudonym or as a team with others. You have either of these options, too. Once established, be sure to tell your donors to select this new name. Please note: when registering for the race, you will be given the option to donate personally at that time. Doing so will create a "no strings attached" donation--i.e., you will not be credited as a fundraiser with that donation. If you wish to donate AND receive credit for it as a fundraiser, set-up your page first, then go to the "Make a Donation" page and donate there.
If you have already registered and would like to become a fundraiser now, or will not be racing but would still like to raise money for "The Cancer Foundation of the Florida Keys", please click on this link and follow instructions. Thank you.
