Danonymous Racing regularly hosts handicapping contests to raise money for racing-related charities. For the third year in a row, he is hosting Cappers for Causes. It is a handicapping contest that covers all three weekends of Triple Crown races, and benefits seven different charities: Thoroughbred Retirement Fund, Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance, Thoroughbred Charities of America, ReRun, Go and Play Stables, Camp Casey, and Kids Beating Cancer will also benefit from the contest.
Anyone can play in the handicapping contest, but to be eligible for the prizes, you have to contribute at least $10 to the fundraising pool. All donations from players will be distributed across the seven charities at the end of the contest.
You can also contribute $100 or more to sponsor the contest, and be a named Capper for a Cause. The contributions from the Cappers for Causes are what purchase the amazing prizes for the competition (American Pharoah! Barbaro! Secretariat! California Chrome!), with the surplus going back to the fundraising pool that will be distributed to the charities after the contest. Just like last year, I am in to support ReRun.
The contest has been a huge success in the past. In 2014, Cappers for Causes raised $1,858.50 for a group of five charities. Last year, it raised $4,031.00 for the same seven charities who will benefit again this year.
We are hoping to raise even more this year for these deserving organisations — and we can, with your help.
So, head over to Danonymous Racing, see what this is all about, and make plans to join us!
