This week Robert Geller, aka @woodbinegeller, was representing LongRun Thoroughbred Retirement Society.

Through fundraising and volunteer work, as well as assistance from the Ontario thoroughbred industry, LongRun evaluates retired racehorses, provides all needed care they require on our new farm, and works to place them in permanent, loving homes. Funds raised by LongRun are used to cover expenses, such as: feed, shipping and blacksmith services, basic re-training, medical expenses, as well as for miscellaneous expenses such as blankets and halters.

Each week, the CharitableWager.com Host will donate US$5 (plus advertising fees) to the charity selected by the winning entrant. Contestants aren’t obligated to donate but are encouraged to give US$5 or however much they feel comfortable contributing. Those who would like to contribute to LongRun Thoroughbred Retirement Society can do so through this linked web page.

Additionally, charities represented in the weekly Free Friday Fun(d)raiser contest will earn points in the annual standings. The charities will earn 60, 20, and 10 points when their proxies finish first, second and third respectively. Additionally, charities will amass an additional 1 point for each player who represented them but did not finish in the top 3. At the end of the year, the top 5 charities in the annual points standings will receive 60%, 20%, 10%, 5%, and 5% of the annual donation pool. The annual donation pool is the combination of a $100 donation from the host and advertising fees on the FFF web pages.
