Reduces risk by removing many of the costs, time and resources associated with organizing a stand-alone event.
Raises awareness for your cause by partnering with a first class event that attracts participants from across North America.
Free, personalized fundraising. We add the convenience and security of online fundraising and tax receipting at ZERO cost to you.
Benefits of Using Our Online Fundraising System:
Quick reporting – fundraising reports containing registrant details and individual donation, including tax receipt numbers.
Tax receipts (if you choose this option) are generated electronically and issued to the donors email address.
Lower administration costs – only a 4.5% + 50¢ cost for online donations. Less handling of donations means more time to recruit and encourage participants.

How it works from a registered participants perspective:
Participant registers through the FCRR website
A confirmation page is sent to the registered participant
That confirmation page has a link on it inviting them to set up their own personal page
This page offers them the ability to choose from all registered partners who they are “running for”
It also offers the ability to add images, add their own bio, and utilize the popular social media tools, as well as an email link.
The participant will want to share this page with friends, co-workers, family and to the world, as for people to pledge money to their chosen beneficiary.
Email any questions to: firstname.lastname@example.orgWe highly recommend that you register today, take advantage of the exposure our site receives all year round, many runners will start their training now, and most importantly, collecting pledges.
