George Eastman House Photo Finish 5K


We are officially kicking off the community efforts to raise awareness and support for the Tenth Annual Greater Rochester Teen Book Festival.     

Our first fundraising event of the season is the George Eastman House Photo Finish 5K Walk/Run to be held on Saturday, September 27, 2014.

There are a number of ways you can help us spread the word about TBF and help us meet our fundraising goal for the year.

1. WALK/RUN a 5K with TBF FANS as a part of our Photo Finish 5K Walk/Run team.   
We are hoping to get at least 10 TBF fans to walk/run in order to celebrate YEAR 10 of the Festival!!!! Simply click on this link and follow the steps to register for the 5K and then to join our TBF TEAM. Also, once you register, someone will be in contact with you to make sure you have a TBF t-shirt to wear that day.  

2. BE AN ACTIVE FUNDRAISER as part of our 5K TBF TEAM.  
If participating in a 5K is not something you can commit to this year, then consider giving a small donation to TBF. Simply follow this link:

3. WEAR YOUR BEST TBF GEAR and COME CHEER ON THE TEAM on Saturday, 27, 2014.
This is the fourth year of the PhotoFinish K5. It is also known as "The Philanthropy Challenge" because you can be a part of continuing Mr. Eastman's wish to make Rochester the healthiest and best place in the world to live and work. Pull out your TBF swag from your closet and come show the community how the Greater Rochester Teen Book Festival embodies George Eastman's philanthropic spirit. 

If you have any other questions about registering for the PhotoFinish 5K as a TBF Team member or if you want more assistance with how to donate to TBF through the fundraising page, please feel free to contact

On behalf of the GREATER ROCHESTER TEEN BOOK FESTIVAL INC, Thanks so much for your support!
