Fundraising Teams

You are just a few steps away from registering to participate in the 2014 Suburban Adventure Walk and Run, and creating a fundraising page.  Registration is FREE for each participant with a commitment to raise a minimum of $100.

Step 1: Visit FirstGiving!!

Step 2: Click the green “Fundraise” button

 

Offline Donations:

  • Aside from using your fundraising website you can also collect “offline” donations of cash and checks.
  • You can manually list those on your fundraising page so it accurately reflects the amount of money your team has raised.
  • Bring those cash and check donations with you on June 7th in an envelope clearly marked with your Team Name and the total enclosed.

FAQ’S:

Does my team have to all walk?

No, each team member can choose 5k walk, 5k run or 10k run.  On the day you will register at the “Team Fundraising” tent and then any team members that want to run will then go register for the run.

How many can there be on my team?

As many as you want.  Unlike most fundraising events, there is no per person registration fee, however we are asking each team to raise a minimum of $100.  We do ask that everyone on your team help fundraise either through using your own page or creating their own pages linked to your page.

Is there a form I can use to collect “offline” gifts of cash and checks?

Yes, click here for “pledge” or “sponsorship” form that you can use to email, print and use snail mail or personally hand to people to use to collect donations.
