The Delaware Charity Challenge is a unique fundraising and athletic competition designed to give organizations, families, and individuals a fun way to raise money and awareness for their favorite causes. Teams that enter may designate any charity they want as a beneficiary of funds they raise as a team. Part of the proceeds from the race registrations and the race sponsorships will go into a prize pool that will be distributed among the charities that raise the most money and to the charities of the teams that win the individual race events on the day of the Delaware Charity Challenge.

Individuals can also compete and sign up simply by following the same captain instructions below, but you can skip steps 3 and 4 and simply leave it so the "(No Create or Join Team Selected)" option is selected. Individuals are more than welcome to join or create a fundraising page and raise money for their favorite cause.
