Peer-to-Peer fundraising challenge passes halfway point

Relay For Life, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, select DetermiNation, and other events are rallying together to fund the fight against cancer through a first-ever, collaborative Fund the Future fall incentive challenge which ends on Friday, Oct. 30, at noon CST.

So far, more than 3,304 participants have raised at least $250 and earned a long-sleeve, hooded t-shirt. Since Oct. 1, more than $3.1 million has been raised across our peer-to-peer properties. The Peer-to-Peer Fund the Future fundraising challenge leaderboard is updated twice a week with the latest results.

Here’s how this challenge works:

  • All challenge participants who raise $250 or more online between Oct. 1 - Oct. 30, 2020 at Noon CST are eligible to receive a gray, long-sleeve, hooded t-shirt, with their choice of Relay For Life, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, DetermiNation or ACS logo.
  • Only online and mobile app donations (including checks deposited via the app) qualify.
  • On a weekly basis, qualified participants will receive an email containing a redemption code to claim their shirt and will be able to identify a shipping address.

Here’s how you can help:

  • Since word-of-mouth is our most powerful tool, share the challenge with friends and family, encouraging them to sign up and begin fundraising. See below for sample social media posts.
  • You can always share local and national social media posts on personal social media pages.
