“Each athlete participating can raise $100 based on a determined pledge rate of $1 per minute. [100 minutes or for any period of exercise].

“Teams will be invited from the local sporting community [Gyms] with the goal of generating funds to support this worthy cause through fitness. Each location will designate one person to coordinate.

“Salvation Army Bermuda will be the collector of all monies raised to be distributed to the Caribbean Territory for Hurricane Irma Relief Efforts.

“After each team has completed their exercise minutes the designated team member will forward the respective funds to The Salvation Army.”
