FUNDRAISING AGREEMENT: YOUR FUNDRAISING COMMITMENT: The MMRF Endurance Events Program is a fundraising effort for the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF). You will receive a guaranteed race entry for the IRONMAN Lake Placid as well as signature team amenities including exclusive transition areas, limited access to hotel room block, training plans, fundraising support (including a personal online donation page), a team jersey and cheer supplies for your supporters from the MMRF in exchange for your fundraising efforts
The MMRF has a limited number of guaranteed entries available for the IRONMAN Lake Placid event. Those entries are awarded based upon the participant's ability to meet the minimum fundraising requirement. By signing this form and joining the MMRF IRONMAN Lake Placid team, you are committing to raise at least $5,000. You agree to raise at least 50% by two months before the event, and to raise the entire amount by one week before the event. You understand that the MMRF reserves the right to charge your credit card, as entered on your registration form, for any shortfall of your commitment as outlined above.
Please know that we will help you every step of the way to reach your goal. These campaigns are built on $100, $250, $500, and even $1,000 donations. Your friends, family and coworkers will support you. We will provide you with lots of suggestions and proven ways to reach your goal, but you must be willing to do the work on your end to solicit donations.
CANCELLATION POLICY: You are responsible for raising the fundraising minimum, even if for any reason, including injury or illness, you are unable to participate in the event. You must contact the MMRF Endurance Events office (email@example.com) as early as possible in writing, if you are not able to participate. In the event that we are able to find another athlete to take your place, you will be released from your fundraising commitment after you have either made a donation or collected donations of at least 10% of the fundraising commitment. Any monies that have been collected from you before you leave the team are nonrefundable.
EVENT REGISTRATION: You will be notified as to any registration instructions on a timely basis. Athletes will be responsible for paying their own race registration fees (as applicable), travel and hotel expenses. This allows the MMRF to continue its outstanding record of delivering nearly 90% of its MMRF budget toward myeloma research and related programs.
OTHER: I agree to be responsive to the MMRF Endurance Events staff with regard to my fundraising progress or lack thereof, and will keep the MMRF Endurance Events staff up to date with regard to any change of address, email or phone contact information, and/or the credit card information provided on the bottom of this form. Failure to make fundraising progress or to communicate with the MMRF Endurance Events staff will open the team member to the possibility of losing their spot on the team.
I hereby further grant permission to the MMRF to use, or authorize others to use, any photographs, motion pictures, recordings, or any other record of my participation in the Event and as a member of the MMRF Endurance Events Endurance Team for any legitimate purpose with my knowledge.
