Fundraising Tools & Tips for the Endless Summer Virtual Fun Walk
Whatever activity you choose to do this year, your fundraising efforts will be the most important part, as it helps us continue providing programs and services free of charge to those in our community dealing with a diagnosis of cancer.
What activity will you do this year? You can choose to still walk 1 or 5 km, OR, pick an activity of your own to do at home. Be sure to update your fundraising page (created when you registered on RaceRoster.com) with your chosen activity so your supporters will know what you plan to do.
Here are a few ideas but, there is no restriction on what you can choose. Just have fun with it!
- Dance in your living room
- Jump rope
- March in place
- Skiiing – Cross Country
- Skiing – Downhill
- Tai Chi
Once you have updated your fundraising page with your activity, make a donation to yourself. Those who self-donate raise almost 10 times more than those who don’t. It will show your supporters that you are serious about your goal to help those dealing with a diagnosis of cancer.
