laura: Hard to tell how long the event will last. The plan so far is that it'll last until the prizes run out, and if everyone happens to run out of pink dolphies before then, we may continue it tomorrow :x It's in a public space during peak racing hours, and I know several attendees will just there to show support, so I'm not sure how many people will actually be racing pink dolphies.
Excerpts from the OP, relevant to your question:
4) Prizes: If your pink dolphy is one of the first 22 1st-4th place winners after 6:05pm PDT, the sponsors of this event will make a $5 donation to komen.org or cancer.org in honor/memory of the name of your choice, totalling $110 in donations to be made on behalf of the winners.
5) Prizes: If any of the 1st-4th place winners are not eligible pink entries, the prize will go to the pink 1st-4th place winners in the next race, until 22 eligible pink contestants have won.
7) Sponsors: Thanks to more generous sponsors contributing to the prizes, the details in magenta are subject to change before the event.
9) Contigency Plan: If the number of event participants and dolphies get too low or the event runs too late, the contest will resume Friday October 25th, also at 6pm PDT / 9pm EDT.
As far as donating goes: If you'd like to sponsor additional winners at $5 each, just let me know how many. Then I'll update to OP to reflect that, and after the races, I'll PM you that # names to donate in honor/memory of. The winners will have a choice of what name to donate in honor/memory of, and whether they want it to go to cancer.org or komen.org ...then you can donate securely online; I won't be collecting personal or financial info from any of the sponsors. Thanks for your interest laura, let me know what you decide!
Looks like the "Swim for the Cure" was an interesting event that I've attended to let the good times roll out and support awareness for breast cancer. Good job organizing and promoting the event, Steph. And I hope the next one you create is gonna be worthwhile to attend.
