The event raises money for S.C. Special Olympics.
People are invited to join individually or as a team of friends, family, or co-workers. A minimum donation of $50 earns participants a commemorative t-shirt and tickets for free food and drinks. Other gifts awarded as well, based on the amount of your donation or the money raised.

The organization receives no federal funding and relies on private and corporate support as well as the efforts of hundreds of volunteers to provide services at no cost to the athletes and their families.
