The Rip-A-Thon celebrates SVSEF athletes across all disciplines, as they gain as many vertical feet and kilometers as possible, to help kick-start the organization’s fundraising efforts for the year.
In 2020, more than $100,000 was raised during these four action-packed days! New in 2021, our dear friend, Freddy Johnson and his bigger than big heart and generosity towards our community, has put up a $50,000 Freddy's Challenge Matching Grant to help us reach at least $100,000! Donate before December 18th and every gift will help us reach our goal and unlock this incredible gift to SVSEF and our financial aid program.
From now through the Rip-A-Thon, SVSEF athletes will solicit tax-deductible donations in support of their participation. Every donation goes directly towards supporting our athletes, coaches and overall programming at SVSEF, including more than $325,000 awarded annually for financial aid.
Athletes can set up their own pledge page on SVSEF's GiveButter platform or invite donors to participate by texting "SVSEF" to 202-858-1233.
Teams will participate by riding, gliding, racing, and ripping the rope at Rotarun per the schedule below:
UPDATED EVENT TIMES as of 11.19.21 (Athletes & Families - please watch for an email from your coach)
Mother Nature has some different plans for all of us this early season with higher than average temperatures, so we've made the decision to move the Rotarun Rip-A-Thon from the first week of December to the third week of December. We understand this starts to bump up against the start of holiday time, but this will allow us to build the best venues possible for the athletes during the Rip-A-Thon, to have Rotarun in tip-top shape for opening day, and also give everyone a little more time to join their Rip-A-Thon teams and help us reach our fundraising goal! Thank you to all the athletes and supporters who have jumped in so far! If you haven't yet, create your page today and get in the Rip-A-Thon spirit!
