We are almost one week away from our first Walk for Wishes event of 2017! Our teams have been working so hard and doing an absolutely amazing job fundraising! Way to go teams!!! This week we got the chance to talk to the wonderful Co-Captain and Christopher’s Mom Christine Bloom from our top fundraising team Christopher’s Crusaders who gave us and inside look at the tips for fundraising…
How They Became the Top Team
Although, this is the Team’s first walk all together they have found their niche in fundraising! Some things they have done to fundraise was creating a Facebook post with Christopher’s picture and with his beautiful story and then having friends and family share the post, as well as, sharing at church and work. And WOW how the community has come together and the donations have been pouring in! Every day they get closer and closer to their goal and as of now there is only 9 days left, ALMOST THERE TEAM!
Tips & Tricks for Other Teams
- Social Media is your friend
- Personalize your team page
- As we get closer and closer to the event , start a countdown on your posts
- As of today only 9 days left!
Christopher’s Crusaders Team
Christopher’s Crusaders team is filled with friends, family, wish granters and his parents who are walking in his loving memory. As I talked to Christine today on the phone the wonderful memories and the life Christopher lived was an incredible one to say the least. Christopher was someone who made others around him laugh and even more made others feel all the love he had to share. Christopher loved playing guitar, soccer, baseball, mini golf and was an ultimate jeopardy fan since he was five years old. But if there is one thing Christopher really loved it was rollercoasters, so much so that he was given the title “The Coaster King”. For his wish Christopher went to Disney World with a front of the line passes. As the team shares on their page, he used that pass to ride 17 rollercoasters …multiple times…in ONE DAY all from the very front seat!! Talk about courage! We are so happy and honored for you to walk with us this year. And congratulation’s team on being the top fundraisers!!
