I am having trouble with my online registration. How can I get help?

Is there a minimum fundraising requirement?
Yes. Every Fireflies West rider pays a $500 nonrefundable registration support fee. This includes an official 2015 Fireflies West Jersey, invitation to group rides and access to our support crew services along the ride in October. All Firefly riders make a commitment to fund raise for City of Hope's leukemia research. Each Firefly rider pledges to raise a minimum of $3,500 for City of Hope. Riders are provided a personal fundraising webpage and donation email templates to help them in their efforts. Each dollar raised pushes the riders and City of Hope that much closer to a cure for leukemia. For those who suffer we ride.

Once you have registered, please log in to your Participant Center, customize your personal fundraising page and begin your fundraising. There is no fundraising minimum requirement. However, we strongly encourage all participants to set a goal of raising at least $200. If you can get 20 friends to contribute just $10, you will have reached your goal! Small donations add up fast! The best advice we can give you for fundraising is to start early and keep asking. Check out our fundraising tips now.

What if I need to cancel?
