Please note that perks vary across events and are based on the featured race type and minimum fundraising level. TEAM PAWS Chicago recognizes that not everyone will be able to take advantage of all perks (for example, those who live outside of Chicago) but we are unable to adjust minimum fundraising requirements for those who do not take advantage of the perks offered. If you raise over the minimum commitment and reach a different race's minimum, you will not receive those perks. Instead, you will be eligible for fundraising prizes for going above and beyond your minimum requirement. You may only receive the perks associated with the race you register for. Perks are non-transferable and offered to registered TEAM PAWS Chicago members only.
