Where does the money go?

Eighty percent of the net proceeds goes to Charities Aid Foundation America to support the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center through the Dolphins Cancer challenge, and twenty percent of the net proceeds goes to Omaze, to support the team's work running the fundraiser.

This means that we account for the hard costs, which include the grand prize and secondary prizes as well as items like content, marketing and credit card transaction fees. After those are accounted for, eighty percent of the remaining proceeds goes to support the cause.


How will winners be notified?
