We're here to help you raise money for LifeWalk! Below you'll find ways to encourage donations, social media images to download and share, facts you can use for social media posts, and ideas to make fundraising fun!

Start Your Fundraising 

Get it started.

  • Fly solo as an individual fundraiser or form a team!
    • Ask your friends and family to support by joining your team and fundraising.
    • You can even ask your company and coworkers if they're interested in forming a corporate team!
  • Tip: You can kick-start your own fundraising start up by donating to yourself. People are more likely to donate if they see someone else has donated.

Share and tell your wonderful supporters why this is important to you.

  • Share your page on your Social Media. We also have images below you can download to share with a link to your page.
  • Email - Send an email donation request to at least 10 to people you know. We have an email template you can use! Just log onto your fundraising dashboard and select "Send a Fundraising Email."

Don't forget to thank your supporters!

  • Send a hand-written note to your donors or thank them on social media.

Remember, no amount is too small!

  • It doesn't matter how big or small the donation is, every dollar counts towards providing care for those in need.
