Additional Information

About Fundraising:

To participate as a Running for Sophie and Madigan team member, we ask that you meet a minimum fundraising commitment, which is based on the race type you select when you register. The minimum fundraised amount does not include the non-refundable $50 registration fee.

If you will need race weekend accommodations, you may be eligible for a specially priced rate for a two night hotel stay at a Walt Disney World® Value Resort during race weekend (January 3-7, 2018).

To assist you in your fundraising efforts, we provide you with the opportunity to create a Personal Fundraising Page to collect donations online and view your donation collection status. You may use a combination of online and offline fundraising efforts, as long as all donations are received by Sophie and Madigan's Playground by the following dates in order to count toward your fundraising minimum:

  • By September 11, 2017: 50% of the fundraising commitment
  • By December 6, 2017: 75% of the fundraising commitment
  • By January 6, 2018: 100% of the fundraising commitment

If the fundraising minimum is not met by these dates, we will ask you to secure your position on the team and secure your race registration with a credit card or check, acknowledging that you will donate the difference between what you have raised and the minimum.

You of course are welcome to exceed the minimum fundraising level, and doing so may make you eligible for additional fundraising incentives.

Additional Fundraising Incentives:

Team participants are eligible to earn an additional fundraising incentive when they exceed their minimum fundraising commitment.

Level 1: Raise $250 over your fundraising commitment and receive:

  • A Sophie and Madigan's Playground car magnet and
