Terms & Conditions
- Registration and Fee: Jericho Project will inform you of the details of registration after your TCS New York City Marathon application is accepted. The TCS New York City Marathon charges a race entry fee that does not count toward your fundraising minimum. This fee will be collected directly by the New York Road Runners (www.nyrr.org). You should NOT contact the New York Road Runners directly to secure your race number.
- Fundraising Commitment: You agree to fundraise a minimum of $2,500 Jericho Project by Monday, October 29, 2018. You agree that if you are unable to complete the race due to injury beforehand or for any other unforeseen circumstance, you will still be personally responsible for the full balance owed. You agree that if the race cannot be held for any unforeseen circumstance, any funds raised by you will not be returned. Jericho Project strongly suggests that you raise at least half of the funds by Monday, September 3, 2018. If you have not raised half of the funds by that date, Jericho Project may contact you to discuss your fundraising plan. If you have not reached the minimum by Monday, October 29, 2018 the Jericho Project team will charge the balance owed to your credit card. There are no exceptions.
- Matching Gift Policy: Many companies match employees’ charitable contributions. Matching gifts will be counted towards your fundraising goal. Jericho Project encourages you to check with your employer to see if they have a matching gift program, and to ask your donors if their employers match gifts. It is your responsibility to contact the matching company to ensure the matching gift form will be issued and arrive at Jericho Project before Monday, October 29, 2018.
