What’s New in 2017
The Byrne Match . . . Better than ever!
For 2017, the Jack & Dorothy Byrne Foundation has once again shown its incredible support for The Prouty and Norris Cotton Cancer Center. This year’s match will not only match every donation beyond your minimum, it will extend to May 15!
Here’s how it works:
Everything that’s in your headquarters (beyond your minimum) at 11:59pm on Monday, May 15, will be matched, dollar for dollar! (For Ultimate Riders, it’s not your minimum, it’s $500.) Whether it was a $25 donation or a $1,000 donation, the total amount in your headquarters minus your minimum will be matched. So make sure you sign up early and fundraise often!
Exciting news! Norris Cotton Cancer Center has joined forces with Positive Tracks to help young people sweat for good at The Prouty!
Check It Out: If you’re age 23 or under, the Positive Tracks U23 Challenges Program is teed up to help you rock The Prouty – every step of the way. Our staff and tools help youth build teams, raise dollars and awareness, and spread your story far and wide. U23 Challenges Captains are also paired with experienced Positive Tracks Peer Coaches who are fired up to help you keep it fun and easy.
Other Awesomeness: Positive Tracks doubles dollars raised by U23 Challenge Team Captains (up to two captains per team) up to $230! Every youth member who joins a U23 Challenge Team gets their dollars doubled up to $23!
