Fundraising for Registration

Fundraising for Registration (FFR) entries give runners an opportunity to fundraise for Texas Center for the Missing and receive an entry into the Marathon or Half Marathon. Participants are asked to raise $500 by November 30th (this date can be extended to mid-January if a good faith effort has been made to raise the goal amount) for Texas Center for the Missing to guarantee your entry. Meeting this fundraising deadline also ensures FFR Runners receive ALL of the HERO Benefits described in the previous section.
