Why did I receive this fundraising request?

Fundraising and Donations
Many of our events are affiliated with a charity. If an event is associated with a Charity there will be a Donations tab on the top of the race page. Participants simply need  go to the Donations tab  to set up a fundraising page. Once  set up participants are ready to solicit  friends and family members to support their participation in the event and their effort to fundraise for the charity.
This is what the fundraising request may look like when you receive it in your in-box:
