Even if you don’t hit your goal, you will end up raising more money, as everyone will take your fundraising efforts more seriously. Everyone wants to be a part of something big.

We have set a goal for 2020 to increase the average amount participants raise to $1800. Why not adopt that as your goal! Let’s help more Bahamians in need!
