What happens if myself or one of the members cannot raise the minimum fundraising amount?

add remove

We encourage all participants to do all they can to reach the minimum fundraising amount of $250. This is to ensure the event reaches its fundraising goals to fund the vital projects which help homeless youth. However, we wouldn’t stop the registrant from participating on the day if they are unable to reach the fundraising goal. The money can also be raised collectively as a team rather than individually to ensure all participants reach their minimum fundraising amount.

I have already signed up, but need to make changes to my registration.
