WHERE WILL THE MONEY GO?
All funds go to Gold Country Wildlife Rescue, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit wildlife rehabilitation center in Placer County, California. As of September 2021, we have already taken in over 4,700 animals needing help - more than any time in our 30-year history. This includes animals injured in recent wildfires. Our precious wildlife need the community's support, now more than ever.
Our goal is to raise at least $20,000 for the food, medical supplies and other resources needed to care for the increasing numbers of injured, sick and orphaned wildlife.
Teams make this extra fun – and the team that brings in the highest fundraising total wins a team prize!
Anyone can create or join a team as you register for the event. When you create a team, a customizable "pledge page" will be created for your members to share. To join an existing team, just select the team's name in the drop down box as you register.
FUNDRAISING & PRIZES
We hope that you will consider raising funds to help our efforts to care for injured, sick and orphaned wildlife. You can earn some great prizes for as little as $50 raised! And the #1 fundraiser in the adult, child and team categories will win an awesome prize package!
Every registration automatically generates a fundraising "pledge" page that you can customize and share with family and friends. Please see the Fundraising Guide for ideas on how to achieve your goal, and to see all of the prizes you can earn. Prizes are cumulative!
