Maybe a better approach would be to charge a reasonable race entry fee?

Hi andicamp, we try to have a reasonable fee and run a quality event at the same time. Please keep in mind that 100% of proceeds go to Albertina Kerr, a nonprofit organization that supports people with developmental disabilities and mental health challenges.

No one on the planet thinks that $70 for a 5k is reasonable.

How many dollars of each entry fee goes to charity? How many dollars go to HTC for "race directing"?
