Are you up for a challenge?

We want to make fundraising fun, so this year, we’re throwing out some awesome fundraising challenges, incentives, and chances to earn badges that mark (and, let’s face it show off) your fundraising progress.


Incentives

Want to help your favorite organization earn more money and also earn a little something for yourself? Check out our fundraising and registration incentives:

  • Registration Incentive: Win a trip to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary

    Strutting is more fun with a friend! Register with your human bestie by August 13th and you’ll be entered to win a trip to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary for you and your friend. Just enter your friend’s first and last name during registration, and be sure they enter your name as well when they register.

  • Network Partner Incentives

    • Help your Network Partner team reach 25 registered team members two weeks before your event for a chance to win $500.
    • Network Partner team members, raise $2,000 toward your personal fundraising total two weeks before your event for a chance to win a matching $2,000.
    • The top Network Partner team will get an additional $10,000 in lifesaving funds.
    • The top five Network Partner teams in each city will win booths at this year’s event where they can showcase their work in your community.

Badges

Did you think getting badges was the best part about being a Girl or Boy Scout? While our badges are on a screen, the pride you will feel earning them will be similar. There are many fundraising and accomplishment milestones that can be earned as you fundraise to save lives. They will appear on your personal and team fundraising pages, showing everyone the impact you are making to lifesaving in your community.
