Become a Beast Fundraiser

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 1, 2023, to support the mission of the Barber National Institute will receive:

  • A free 2023 Barber Beast on the Bay registration
  • NEW Cash prizes to our top fundraisers
  • The knowledge that you are helping to make dreams come true!

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.

The last day to register as a fundraiser is Friday, August 18, 2023.
