How much do I have to raise?

The more you fundraise, the more points your team is allotted towards winning the ParaTough Cup. We recommend your team set a fundraising target of at least $2,500. Fundraising targets can also be adjusted as you go.  We are here to support your fundraising efforts in any way we can.

How does my team win?

Your team wins by having the most combined points from the amount of money your team has fundraised, as well as your performance in the various Para sport challenges.

What if there is a tie in total points?

The tie breaker is the team who raised the most amount of money, down to a single penny. If there is a tie in money raised, there will be a fitness challenge as the tie breaker.

Do I have to participate in every challenge?

Each team member will be required to participate in every challenge unless otherwise indicated in the activity overview and rules. The exception will be if a participant is unable to compete in one of the activities due to a disability/injury or other impairment. In this case another team member may take the place of the individual that is unable to compete.

What should I bring?

Comfortable athletic wear and good running shoes. Athletic gloves can also be worn for the challenges which involve wheelchairs to protect your hands, but are not necessary. Your team will be provided with t-shirts and competition bibs. You may also want to bring a change of clothes for the post-event activities.
