WHERE DOES THE MONEY I RAISE GO?

100% of proceeds from the event go directly to the services provided to the community by Family & Children’s Service of Ithaca (F&CS). This funding will be directed toward programs like Open Doors, Community Outreach Worker Program, and many more. F&CS is committed to providing services to anyone in the community regardless of their ability to pay.

CAN ANYBODY PARTICIPATE?
