All T-shirts are being mailed this year.

New this year, we will be mailing T-shirts to all participants who raise at least $100. In order to receive your shirt in time for event day, you must register and fundraise $100+ by Saturday, March 2, 2024.

T-shirts will not be available for pick-up at the event. 

If you raise $100 or more after Saturday, March 2, 2024, your
T-shirt will be sent to you after the event.

Shirts are being mailed to ensure you will get the size you requested. Additionally, the new program will cut down on waste and will allow for cost savings, so that more of your fundraising dollars are directed to our mission - a world free of MS.
