On October 9th our 6th annual Walk-for-Wishes will be taking place at the Philadelphia Zoo. If you’re not already signed up, there is still time! Register on the Philadelphia Walk-for-Wishes page. Here you can chose to ‘Start a New Team’, ‘Join an Existing team’, or ‘Join as an Individual’. Continue to register by following the online instructions. Be sure to tell us more about you, then set a fundraising goal for you or your team!
Now that you’re registered and walk is fast approaching… go wild! Here are some tips and ideas to meet your fundraising goals!
- Use the fundraising tools! Once you’ve logged into the participant center, you have the option to send emails and make Facebook posts with Friendraiser. (Check out our previous wish blog for in depth instructions on Friendraiser). Use social media, send emails, even make phone calls, keep reminding friends and family walk is almost here! Be personal and keep spreading the word!
- Be enthusiastic! Stick with your fundraising, you can reach your goal! Remind yourself, family, and friends what a great cause is behind walk!
- Hold a wild event! Yes, there is still time for a fundraising event and our blog is full of fun ideas. Get sponsors to donate for a day to wear your clothes backwards! Hold a wild game night, charge an ‘entrance fee’ and fill the night with twister and apple dunking!
Remember with your commitment to walk, you can make a difference in your community! With every step, you can help grant a wish!
