Camp Fontanelle provides summer camp financial assistance to many campers. Our goal is to raise $2,000 in donations/pledges to help fund this assistance through this race. After a participant is registered, a donation/pledge can be made online by clicking on the "Pledge Participant" on the Race Roster page. The participant with the most donations/pledges in their name will win 5 zipline tickets. Support a great cause sending children to camp by sending a pledge and send your loved one/friend down the zipline. "Make A Pledge To A Participant on Race Roster Page"
