BEAT THE BEAST as a Beast Fundraiser!

Tackling the 10-Mile or Adapted courses aren't the only ways you can challenge yourself for Barber Beast on the Bay.  Become a Beast Fundraiser!  Anyone person who commits to raising $500 by noon on Friday, September 3, 2021, to support the mission of the Barber National Institute will receive:

Yes, raising $500 is a challenge, but it is a challenge you can conquer!  Our team will provide you with a way to track how much you raise, a custom fundraising webpage for our campaign and tips on how to reach your goal.  Reach out to your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers.  Be creative!  Design a shirt to sell, ask your employers to sponsor you, hold a bake sale or car wash, etc.

The only limit to this challenge is you. Think outside the box; become a Beast Fundraiser.

How to Become a Beast Fundraiser:

  1. Register as a Beast Fundraiser for the Barber Beast on the Bay's 10-Mile Course
  2. Click "Join the Team" here on GoFundMe Charities
  3. Share your Fundraising Campaign with the world!

*When you register for the Barber Beast on the Bay, you will still need to enter a card for payment.  If the fundraising amount is not met before noon on Friday, September 3, 2021, the card will be charged for the cost of registration, $125.*
