“ALL ACCESS PASS”
Go Big or Go Home! The Insane Inflatable 5K offers individuals the chance to register for the “All Access Pass,” giving them the ability to run in any wave time, even if that wave is sold out. The All Access Pass comes with a special wristband color (handed out at packet pickup), which allows you to enter the starting line corral for any wave time you choose. In addition, it also gives you a $20 merchandise credit to get some sweet swag at our on-site merchandise tent.
Most of our events sell out and often times people do not get to run in the waves their friends are running in. The All Access Pass gets you into the wave with your friends even if it’s sold out. For all you procrastinators out there – you’re welcome!

We will make a $5 donation for everyone who registers using the personalized code we create for you (Minimum 20 uses needed for a donation to be made). You must be affiliated with or have connections to an affiliate with the non-profit you’d like to fundraise for. It is up to you to get the word out to your supporters and constituents.

We’re committed to raising funds and awareness for a local charity in each of the towns we visit. For the Buffalo event, we have partnered again with Roswell Park Cancer Institute as our charity partner as the sole benefactor — raising funds through runner donations, a dedicated charity wave and an online fundraising tool.
The Roswell Park Alliance Foundation raises and accepts all contributions to benefit Roswell Park Cancer Institute. These funds are put to immediate use to increase the pace from research and trials into improved clinical care, to ensure state-of-the-art facilities and to help improve the quality of life for patients and their families. The Alliance Foundation is the inaugural winner of the Torch Award for Philanthropic Excellence presented by the Better Business Bureau Foundation of Upstate New York and is consistently ranked among the top charitable organizations in the U.S. for fiscal responsibility by Charity Navigator.
