Run For Free FAQs
Can I opt out of receiving my registration fee reimbursement and donate it back to CAMPFIRE CIRCLE (formerly Camp Ooch)?
Absolutely! CAMPFIRE CIRCLE incurs the cost of your registration as our way of saying thank you for your commitment to raising critical funds for kids and families affected by childhood cancer.
By opting out of receiving a refund, you will receive a gift-in-kind donation tax receipt for the value of your base registration fee and make a meaningful difference in the life of a child.
How will I receive my reimbursement?
Instructions on how to receive your reimbursement will be emailed to the address you provided when you registered, after the Sporting Life 10K in early June 2022. You must respond to this email in order to receive your reimbursement or tax receipt.
If you have moved or would like us to send the refund to an alternative address, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
