2015 Prize Pool
Charities can win even more money from the prize pool.
The most unique thing about the Delaware Charity Challenge will be the Delaware Charity Challenge Prize Pool (the "Prize Pool"). Not only did the charities win by having their teams help raise money for them, they won more based on how much they raised or if their teams won one of the races at the Delaware Charity Challenge Race to First 5K and Adventure Challenge Relay.
The 2015 Prize Pool will be generated primarily from race registrations and sponsorships. Ten percent of the race registration entry fees and twenty percent of the sponsorships were added to the prize pool.
The 2015 Prize Pool was awarded as follows. Sixty (60) percent of the prize pool will be distributed to the top three charities that raise the most money during the Fundraising Challenge portion of the Delaware Charity Challenge. The breakdown of the Prize Pool winnings for these three charities will be: First (30%), Second (20%), Third (10%). The remaining forty (40) percent of the prize pool was distributed evenly among the charities of the winning teams of each of the competitive races on the day of the Delaware Charity Challenge. There were four competitive 5K races (the Men's Team 5K, the Women's Team 5K, and the Co-Ed Team 5K) as well as the Adventure Challenge Relay. Innovincent rounded the 2015 Prize Pool up so that the total awarded was $1,000.
In the 2015 Race to Raise, Meals on Wheels Delaware won first place and received the $300 first place prize from the prize pool. They raised $5,995 between its official team and a team from Monroe Energy, which designated Meals on Wheels Delaware as its nonprofit beneficiary. Team Veritext Legal Solutions finished second, raising $5,550 for its nonprofit beneficiary, Ministry of Caring, earning that charity an additional $200 second place prize from the prize pool. Team End Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy raised the third highest amount of $4,716 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), earning the third place $100 prize for MDA. Team Cure Sanfilippo, raising money for Team Sanfilippo Foundation, raised $4,550. Team Veritext, Team End Duchenne, and Team Cure Sanfilippo were the top three fundraising teams of the 26 teams competing in the Race to Raise.
In addition to the cash portion of the Prize Pool, there were two additional prizes for the two Delaware-based charities that raised the most money during the Fundraising Challenge. For the Delaware-based nonprofit that raised the most money, the Wilmington Blue Rocks awarded a first place prize that included a half-page ad in the Blue Rocks' game day program for the remainder of the season and also two thirty-second radio spots during the Blue Rocks radio broadcasts for the remainder of the season. In addition, at a future game of the nonprofit's choice (subject to availability), the winning nonprofit won the use of a luxury suite (including twenty tickets and ten parking passes) and some in-game promotion at that game as well, including an on-site marketing display. For the Delaware-based nonprofit that raises the second-most money, the prize included a quarter-page ad in the Blue Rocks' game program for the remainder of the season as well as ten field box tickets at a future game of the nonprofit's choice (subject to availability) and similar promotion at that game, including on on-site marketing display. These prizes were awarded in addition to any cash prizes these charities could have won as part of the Prize Pool.
In this official nonprofit team category, Team Meals On Wheels Delaware and Team Next Gen North (raising money for the Next Generation of the Delaware Community Foundation (North) Fund) finished first and second, respectively. These teams won the two Wilmington Blue Rocks advertising packages for having raised the most money of any official nonprofit team.
