The more participants they have, the closer to the start line they get and the more donations they get, the better the prize for our team/school.

Each class will collect donations in their classrooms to go towards the event and the class that collects the most will receive a prize and the WME Pride Award! To sign up or make a donation online, please visit the Freezing Wildcat Heinies Team Page.
