Community Fund

The TOUGHMAN Community Fund Program provides race participants (athletes, volunteers and race staff) an opportunity to support their community or charitable organization by participating in the 2015 Westchester TOUGHMAN Race Event Weekend. The event will take place at Lake Welch, Harriman State Park, Stony Point, NY in September 2016.

In order to participate in the TOUGHMAN Community Fund (“The Program”), you must be a registered TOUGHMAN Program Participant. A “TOUGHMAN Program Participant” (a.k.a. “Program Participant”) is defined as a registered and participating: 1) athlete, 2) volunteer or 3) race staff member in the 2013 Westchester TOUGHMAN Race Event. A Program Participant is an athlete who has completed their race registration requirements on-line and has received their official race entry confirmation. A Program Participant can also be a volunteer or race staff member who has completed their registration via: ToughmanCommunityFund. Athlete race entries are not provided through the TOUGHMAN Community Fund site.

* Athletes must personally pickup their race numbers and show proof of USTA membership; they must be present at the start of the race and must complete the first of three race events; Therefore, completion of all three race events is not a requirement.

* Volunteer members must personally check-in on race day prior to the race start with the Volunteer Committee, go to their assigned location and race support duties. A minimum of four hours of volunteer service is required to meet participation requirements.

* Race Staff members must meet their organizational and race event responsibilities in order to meet participation requirements.

A Program Participant may begin fundraising immediately following completing their program registration requirements described above.

A Program Participant may not be employed by the nonprofit organization for which funds are being raised.

Program Participants may use the assistance of other people in collecting and raising funds for their cause. All funds must be collected expressly for the TOUGHMAN Community Fund with the expressed intent of directing these funds to the Program Participants declared benefactor.

Program Participants must declare one and only one benefactor. A benefactor is defined as a charity, organization, community group or individual.

Funds may be raised through donations only. All donated funds must be made via the Community Fund website. The TOUGHMAN Race Organization does not collect any money from Program Participants.

The fundraising deadline is in effect as of 11:59pm on the date of the race event.

All funds contributed to the TOUGHMAN Community Fund less administrative fees will be sent to the designated beneficiaries within four to five weeks following the TOUGHMAN race event. The entire total funds raised will be counted towards each athlete’s fundraising total. Any funds received between the fundraising deadline and when an athlete's fundraising site closes, one month following the race, will be sent to the benefactor shortly after the site is closed.
