I want to write a donation check. What do I do?
Checks should be made payable to: Race for Hope - DC. Send donations to: Race for Hope - DC, c/o National Brain Tumor Society, 55 Chapel Street, Suite 200, Newton, MA 02458. Download a printable donation form to include with your donation. If applicable, the memo line of the check should include the name of the individual or team that you want credited for the donation.

My friends mailed some donations, but I do not see them on my personal page. Why?
It takes 7 to 10 business days to process donations sent by mail and post them on the website. Depending on the instructions accompanying the checks, the donations may have been credited to the general Race for Hope DC, or to a team, rather than to you by name. Please contact to have it credited to your personal page. Provide your full name and the donor's full name and donation amount. The recommended process is having the name of the participant and/or team receiving credit on the memo section of the check.

I donated online and I don't see my name listed on my friend's personal page.
You may have accidentally donated to the Race in general or to your friend’s general team. Only donations designated specifically to a person appear on that person's fundraising honor roll. Please contact and we will credit the appropriate individual.

Is my personal information secure?
A. Convio, the company that powers the Race for Hope - DC website, makes every effort to protect your personal contact and credit card information. They use industry-standard SSL encryption techniques to make sure your credit card information, passwords and personal information travel securely over the Internet.

How are credit card transactions handled?
Credit card information is not stored in our database. During the donation process, we send an individual's credit card information to an online processing terminal using a secure connection. The information passed back is an approval or denial for the credit card donation.
