Race To Erase

About The Race

FAQ

When is the Race to Erase?

The Race to Erase is held on different dates each year.  Please visit the Upcoming Events page for all the up to date information.

Is the Race to Erase a running race?

No! Teams travel throughout their community by car, competing in a series of fun-filled challenges along the way. The challenges are a combination of savvy and smarts - no goofy shorts required.

How many people are on a team and are there any restrictions on who can participate?

Teams consist of four members. Team members must be at least 16 years of age to participate.

Do you need to know who will be on your team to register?

No you don't. The team captain register's the team and then invities the other members of their team as they are confirmed. Once a team is registered you can start fundraising.

Where is the money going and can I choose more than one organization?

Proceeds from all Race to Erase events benefit many local not-for-profit organizations. When a team registers, they choose which organization they would like to receive their funds. Each team can only choose one organization to support.

Can teams collect donations online?

Yes. After registering online, teams can point their sponsors to the Pledge a Participant page, choose the team they wish to sponsor, and make a donation by credit card. Receipts for online donations are emailed immediately (an active email address is required), and online donations, like donations by cash and cheque, will receive tax receipts following the Race to Erase event.

Will people who sponsor me receive a tax receipt?

Yes, donations of $20 or more will be issued a tax receipt following the event as long as their complete address (including postal code and phone number) is provided.  Tax receipts are issued by The Chris Dawson Foundation.

We feel it is the best event going in the community from a charitable, community, team building and networking perspective.

The number of repeat teams year over year shows the event’s strength and it’s firmly in my calendar of events each fall.
