We can All be Super Striders!! Don't worry if you're just getting started now - Did you know Great Strides is a year-round campaign? We will continue collecting donations towards a cure until the end of the year!
Here are a few fundraising ideas to help get you started -
Host a fundraising party! Bring your friends and neighbors together for a party and ask them to support Great Strides. Show them the Great Strides video, and invite them to make an immediate online donation on your personal web page.
Ask your local businesses for support. Do you give business to a dry cleaner, coffee shop, doctor, restaurant, hair dresser, babysitter or mechanic? Ask the businesses to support your efforts.
Organize a Jeans for Genes Day! On a specified day, employees can make a pre-determined contribution ($5 or $10) for the privilege of wearing jeans at the workplace.
Ask your employer if they will sponsor the walk: CF Foundation staff can provide sponsorship financial levels and benefits.
Everyone loves a 50/50/ drawing! Walk around the office with a bag and collect $20 bills from your coworkers. Have them write their name of the bill they drop in the bag. Shake up the bag and pull out a winner. The person who wins geets half the money, and the other half goes to CF!
Bake Sale - Ask your co-workers or friends and family to help you make a variety of baked goods, and sell them for a price that will ensure you'll make a profit. Mothers Day is a great time to hold a bake sale! People are always looking for easy and delicious gifts and treats. Be sure to publicize the bake sale ahead of time so people bring lots of money.
