What are the individual fundraising awards?
The top 50 individual fundraisers will receive a $50 Belk gift card.
The top individual fundraiser (cumulative) will receive an American Airlines certificate on Race Day which may be redeemed for 25,000 AAdvantage miles.
Each week leading up to Race Day (first day of contest is August 26), we will recognized the top fundraising individual for that week, and that person will receive a prize! The weekly winners are determined by funds raised that week, not their cumulative total. Fundraising weeks begin on Fridays and end on Thursdays with the winner announced on the following Friday. The fundraising weeks are: Aug. 26-Sept. 1 (winner announced on Sept. 2), Sept. 2-8, Sept. 9-15, Sept. 16-22, Sept. 23-29, Sept. 30-Oct.6, Oct. 7-13, Oct. 14-20. Winners will be contacted and announced on our social media pages (Facebook and Twitter). Be sure to like us on Facebook at Komen North Mississippi Race for the Cure, and follow us on Twitter @KomenNorthMS.
What are the team fundraising awards?
Top fundraising teams in the following categories will be recognized on Race Day: Corporate, Small Business, School, Social/Community Group, Friends & Family, and Church/Religious Group (team captains must choose a category when registering their team to be eligible for these awards). There will also be an award for the top overall fundraising team. Additionally, there will be an award for the largest team in the categories listed above. Please note that individual fundraising counts toward the team total, so you may record your personal fundraising on your personal fundraising page, and it will still be contributing to the team total.
