With less than five weeks to go until Patch Sprint 2013, over eight thousand dollars has been raised for the Adirondack Scholarship Foundation.
"We are thrilled with our participant generosity", said event co-creator Tim Singer, "and we are now making a push to reach the $10,000 mark for the first time ever!"
To do this, a number of donor incentives have been instituted for this year's event. "We already have a clear front-runner in the contest for bib #1, which will go to the racer or trekker who makes the largest pledge to our foundation," said Singer. "One participant has made a $500 donation!"
Additionally, Race #46 will go to the participant who can get the most other people to donate in their names. Right now, one racer has had four people donate on their behalf. There's still plenty of time to increase that count and, according to Singer, "The first participant- racer, trekker, volunteer, friend, anyone- that can get ten other people to donate on their behalf, will win a special quilt, made from Patch Sprint T-shirts, dating back to 1999.
"The beautiful quilt has been commissioned, and the seamstress is finishing it up this week. We will post pictures when we can. But please spread the word to your friends and family to donate in your name. You may not only win the quilt, you will be helping out a great cause!"
The first person to have ten donations made in their name will receive the special quilt*.
