Welcome to City Chase Philadelphia CHASEPOINT #1! We are proud to announce Special Olympics Chicago as our official charitable partner. Special Olympics Chicago provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, ad friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
As your FIRST CHASEPOINT we encourage your support for this meaningful cause, and ask that your team raise a minimum of $40 in donations for Special Olympics Chicago by 3 PM on Saturday, August 21st. It's really easy to create a fundraising page for your team directly from this page... so keep reading!
How to create your team's fundraising page:
1) Click the "Create Your Fundraising Page" button at the top right of the page.
2) If you are a StayClassy memeber already, you can simply sign in. If you are not, it only takes a minute to register, and it's free. You should create ONE FUNDRAISING PAGE per team. You can enter your team name in the First and Last name fields (i.e. "Scot Chisholm & Shanna Stuhmer", or "Team Awesome"); however, only one email will be associated to the fundraising page (so make sure you check that email address for fundraising updates).
IMPORTANT: Your friends and family will need to identify your team when they donate.. so make it something that is easy to find for them!
3) You will then be prompted to create your fundraising page. The goal you must hit to complete the ChasePoint is $40. You can use the default text provided, or you can customize your page any way you see fit.
4) Click "Save Changes" and you are done! You'll get an email with a few tips on the best ways to promote your page (friendly hint: start by sending everyone you know an email!)
Donations must be collected online only and will be verified on course. Once you have reached your fundraising goal you will receive a ticket with a PDF attachment that you will be able to print and bring Saturday to be handed in at a TBD location on the course. Only then will your team get credit for completing ChasePoint #1. Please contact us if you do not receive this confirmation email.
If you at any point have issues setting up your fundraising page, or questions regarding donating please email Shanna Stuhmer at Shanna@stayclassy.org.
