More Frequently Asked Questions
“Do I collect the money?”
Sponsors can donate to your team easily online once your team is registered. They simply need to choose a member of your team from a list on the site. Other pledges should be collected by you and turned in with your pledge forms at Life-A-Thon. (To be, fair only fulfilled pledges at the time of tallying the additional funds will count towards the award for total dollars raised.)
