Fundraising

Knee Knacker — more than just a race!

To increase our com­mu­nity impact and legacy, run­ners, vol­un­teers and sup­port­ers can donate to North Shore Search and Rescue by set­ting up their own per­sonal dona­tion page or donate to another runner’s page. Dona­tions go directly to North Shore Search and Rescue, and an elec­tronic tax receipt is issued on dona­tion. Addi­tion­ally, for any runner that raises $100 or more, we will waive the 4 hour vol­un­teer require­ment. While we hope you’ll be as excited about this pos­si­bil­ity as we are, it’s impor­tant to note that rais­ing funds is com­pletely optional. We will not require any­thing dif­fer­ent from you if you choose not to participate.

You can set up your own per­sonal dona­tion page by click­ing here so your friends and family can sup­port you and our Knee Knacker com­mu­nity even fur­ther. We will add a little friendly com­pe­ti­tion and for the indi­vid­ual who raises the most money between  Novem­ber 12, 2013 and July 12, 2014, in addi­tion to brag­ging rights, we will award a GUARANTEED LOTTERY SPOT for 2015!

Yes, really.

We feel so strongly that (as a trail run­ning com­mu­nity) we can have a big impact on people’s lives — not ‘just’ hold a great event — that we decided we would put a cov­eted spot out there. Just think… if each runner raises $300 (an exam­ple of a dollar per mile from 10 people)… we as a com­mu­nity would donate $60,000! How cool would that be!?!
