Fundraising Commitment

Fundraising Commitment

If you can imagine a thing, you can certainly do it.

When you register to ride, you have committed to raise either $500 or $3,000 depending on the route you choose. Fundraising commitments for students are the same as adult commitments.

Nearly all of CT Challenge Riders hit or exceed their minimum commitment.


  • All riders commit to an individual minimum regardless of whether you are riding on a team or not.
  • There is no fundraising minimum for virtual riders. If, however, they raise the minimum and decide to ride, contact us at
  • If by June 30th, your plans change and you can no longer participate in the Ride, you may cancel. However, all funds raised to that date will remain donated to the CT Challenge and you will forfeit your registration fee. (Before you make this decision, please contact us at We have lots of tools in place to support your fundraising. You can do this!)
  • If a rider has not raised his/her minimum amount by October 16, the balance of the minimum will automatically be charged to the credit card provided at registration.

Important note: Teams/families of four or more members may share funds by having their team captain contact us at by October 9th, one week before the fundraising deadline. For example, if all 4 team members sign up for the 25 mile route ($500 minimum), each person will need to fundraise the minimum of $500 and the team must raise a total of $2,000. If one of your team members raises $400 and you raise $600, you can share your $100 to the other rider. Each teammate must average $500 in this example.
