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.  

Prize Pool History

the prize pool is our incentive to help teams raise more money for nonprofits.

When we created the Delaware Charity Challenge, we wanted one of its unique features to be the Delaware Charity Challenge Prize Pool (the "Prize Pool"). The Prize Pool allows teams to win additional money for their designated nonprofit beneficiary on top of what they raise for these causes on their team fundraising pages. The Prize Pool is generated primarily from race registrations and sponsorships. Ten percent of the race registration entry fees and twenty percent of the sponsorships received will be added to the prize pool. The Prize Pool is used to award the top 3 fundraising teams in the Race to Raise fundraising competition and the winners of the different competitive divisions of the Delaware Charity Challenge athletic competitions throughout the year.
