Team Competition: DTSF businesses (located downtown) can organize teams of runners. Teams can register, buy shirts, and encourage friends and family to donate. Please contact Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your team!
Individuals can join any business team they wish to support. Miles are logged via treadmill, walking, running, etc.
Businesses that finish in the top five keep the amount of money raised. The rest of the will be evenly distributed between all the other businesses.
The Downtown Economic Development Incentive Fund (DEDIF) was established in the mid 1990’s to support small businesses and enhance the vibrancy of Downtown Sioux Falls. DTSF has used DEDIF in the past for micro loans to small businesses and to establish the Retail Incubator Program. Most recently, DEDIF was used to provide financial aid to businesses impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic. The DTSF First Friday Fund Run will help supplement DEDIF and provide support to downtown businesses by directly rewarding the top five businesses to raise money by their teams. The remaining funds will be equally distributed to the other participating businesses.
