Is there a fee to register for BBR24?
Yes. Rider registration fee is $500.
I’m a Team Captain. how do I register my team?
You can simply register by creating a Team. After you have set up the Team, you can and invite others to join.
Is there a minimum fundraising amount to participate?
The current minimum fundraising amount is $5000 with registration fee acting as a $500 self-sponsor towards total.
$5000 minimum must be reached before Thursday, May 9, 2024, in order to confirm participation.
Can I Self Sponsor?
TAX RECEIPTS for PARTICIPANT self-sponsored donations will be reconciled and sent by email on or before August 31st, 2024, after the end of the Ride in June.
The reason is that tax receipts can only be issued for personal donations exceeding $2500, which is deemed to be the NET BENEFIT amount for next year’s Ride, and ensures that Wounded Warriors Canada is issuing all Tax Receipts in accordance with CRA guidelines. The NET BENEFIT represents the value of all benefits received by the PARTICIPANT during the Ride (ie. accomodations, meals, etc.).
Should you have additional questions, please contact Laurie Sweet, Director Finance & Administration, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can Riders combine their funds raised so that as a group, they average $5000 per Rider?
Yes. We encourage Riders to create a Team to join forces and fundraise together.
How do I collect donations?
Donations can be made through your personal/team fundraising page.
