How does fundraising work?
Fundraising is done through our Individual Pin Cancer National Tournament
Once you register to compete, a fundraising page will atomically be generated for you. Once you claim it via email, you will have the ability to personalize it, make it yours, and share it online.
Once you start raising donations on your page, you will earn & lock in rewards for milestones hit. Raise $1,000 or more BEFORE AUG 21 - and earn all 8 rewards!
We will collect all necessary info from you in advance during the registration process so we know what size gear, shoes, etc. we need to set aside for your rewards.
Whatever donation milestone you are at by end of day Aug 21, 2021 - that is where you will lock in. For example: if you raised $724 = you earned free entry, a water bottle, a t-shirt, shorts, & a hoodie.
Rewards can be picked up anytime during the PC Nationals. We will not be shipping any rewards before or after the tournament.
Wrestlers who raised at least $200 before Aug. 21 will earn free entry, Which means we will refund your registration fee no earlier than the day of the tournament. Either by direct refund to the CC you used to register, refund through paypal or venmo, or refund via check which will be mailed out 5-7 days after the tournament.
Considering this tournament is about competing at a high level, but more importantly about coming together for a bigger cause - we have decided not to give out medals to top placers. Instead, we encourage EVERY wrestler to get involved and fundraise before the tournament to help us reach our goal for St. Jude. The gear you will be earning for your fundraising efforts (up to $400 value) is much more valuable, and cooler than a $2 medal.
How does free entry work for the Individual PC Nationals?
Once you pay to register, you can claim your online fundraising page that will automatically be generated for you after registration. You will then have until August 21 to raise as much donations as possible. If you raise $200 or more before August 21, you will lock in your free entry.
If I raised $200 or more, how and when do I receive my registration back?
Your entry fee (registration cost) will be refunded to you the day of the tournament in 1 of 3 ways:
- Refund directly back to the credit card used to register
- Refund through paypal or venmo
- Refund via check - *mailed after the 5-7 business day after the tournament
Can I change my weight class after I register?
Yes! You may change your weight class before the tournament. We ask that you email the changes to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 3 days BEFORE the tournament.
What if I do not make weight the day of weigh-ins?
If you do not make weight the day of, you will be given the rest of the time of weigh-ins to try and make it. If you still miss weight, we will place you in the weight class above. (Refer to Divisions & Weights tab for weight allowance info)
If I'm competing in both the PC Nationals & the PC National Team Duals does my weigh in from Friday count for both days?
Do we have to wear headgear?
No. But, we encourage you to.
Do coaches need a wristband to get on the mats?
Yes. Coaches must pay for a coach's pass the day of the tournament. If you do not have a coaches pass, you will not be allowed on the gym floor.
I raised money through the Wrestle for a Cure Campaign during the season - do I get free entry into the PC Nationals?
No. Although we greatly appreciate your support in our cause, this is a separate fundraising campaign.
If I hit each milestone in my fundraising efforts - do I earn all the gear?
Yes! You earn each piece of gear as you hit each fundraising milestone. That's over $425 worth of gear!
Where do the donations raised from the PC Nationals go?
Proceeds from this event go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
What percentage of donations raised is donated to St. Jude?
Roughly 75% of what is raised is donated directly to St. Jude. The other 25% goes to tournament costs. (venue, gear rewards, fundraising software, referees, mat/table rentals, trainers, etc.)
When is the last day to register to compete?
Online Registration closes 8/31/21. There will be NO walk-ins
