Create Your Own

Individual and Team Events

You can raise money on your own or make it a team event. If you really love animals, offer dog-walking or cat sitting services around your neighborhood for donations. Or hold a scavenger hunt where each team member competes to solve the clues the fastest and raise the most money leading up to the event!
