Fundraising is the most important part of your participation in Race to Stop MS.
All those participating in a Race to Stop MS event are required to raise the minimum donation for that event:
NYC Half-Marathon: $1,500 (Half-Marathon Supporters: $500)
NYC Triathlon: $2,500 (Triathlon Supporters: $1,000)
New York City Marathon: $4,000 (Marathon Supporters: $1,000)

Four easy steps to get you started:
1. Set a goal. Your goal should be at least the minimum requirement ($1,500 for the Half-Marathon, $2,500 for the Triathlon and $4,000 for the Marathon) but don’t be afraid to BE BOLD! Update your goal in your Participant Center so it is proudly displayed on your fundraising Web page and share your goal when asking your friends and family for support. When you surpass your goal, be sure to update your page with a new one!
2. Share your story. Tell everyone you know you are running with the Race to Stop MS team and tell them why.
3. Go Online. There is an entire set of easy-to-use online fundraising tools right at your fingertips! You can set up a personal Web page, send out e-mails, and track your progress.
