In addition, anyone not able to participate in Florence Forth can also donate towards your team’s fundraising total. Let them know they can select “Donate Only” on the registration site and make sure they choose your team (as indicated above). The cumulative donations of all team members (participants and non-participants) count towards the team’s fundraising total.
