Top Prizes for Gran Fondo 8

Exclusive prizes and experiences will be awarded to this year's very top fundraisers. Unlike the Fundraising Incentives that every participant earns, only the individuals who rise to the top of the fundraising rankings will have their choice of this year's Top Fundraiser Prizes.

After all donations have been processed after the close of fundraising on September 27, 2021, the individuals with the highest donation can claim bragging rights and pick their winnings! Prizes cannot be exchanged or donated for monetary value as they are donated by our generous sponsors.
