Want to gain a scoring edge and support your local community?

New this year, teams have a voluntary option to get an extra 5 points for a minimum donation of $50 total to the United Way. While individual donations and payroll pledges are welcomed, only a maximum of 5 points can be earned for each for team.

Donations can be made on event day at time of registration. The United Way will have a table and will be accepting donations made by cash, credit card or debit. You just need to let the United Way know your team name.
