Lessons/suggestions It was a good event, but it was soon after we first started having the first meetings of the semester and we did not have a lot of time to prepare for the race or raise much money.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS
Comments Make sure to start fundraising as soon as possible. It was hard to get people to raise money in the beginning of the year, since many were just settling in for the semester. It would be good to have some group fundraising events.
