  • The top fundraiser (overall amount) in each of the three categories (50, 16.5, and 6-mile hikes)
  • The fundraiser with the most individual donors in each category
  • Any fundraiser who raises more than $1,000 by April 15th will get a Project U.S.E. hydration pack to use on the hike (If you raise $1,000 after April 15th, we will send one to you after the hike)
