In addition to the physical competition, we ask participants to raise funds and awareness for SCI and its mariner support services. Each team is challenged to raise a combined minimum of $3,000.* The money raised by each team counts towards overall team rankings and awards. SCI creates a donation webpage for each team and its members, and will send competitors instructions on how to login and personalize their team and individual pages. Teams will also receive tips and templates to aid them in their fundraising efforts.
*Participation in the Philanthropy Challenge is not mandatory to compete in the SCI Mountain Challenge. However, overall standings are calculated based on course times AND money raised. Teams that do not meet the minimum requirement of $3,000 raised in the Philanthropy Challenge will not be qualified to win awards in the the fundraising or overall categories. We strongly encourage all teams to participate!
