THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED IN 2015!

Many patients have only ever met a handful of other patients suffering from IBD. This is a unique opportunity to meet hundreds of IBD patients, families, and supporters from your own backyard in the Boston community. There is no fee to register and no team is too big or small!

Here are a few proven tips to help you have a rewarding and successful walk experience with your team!

Step 1: Set a realistic and meaningful goal for your team

There is no cost to register and no fundraising minimum. It is up to you to set a personally meaningful and significant goal for you and your team. Communicate that goal to your team members and work together to achieve it dividing the goal among each other.

Step 2: Write Personal Fundraising Letters & Emails

Compose a passionate and individualized letter about why you are walking and how people can support your fundraising efforts.

Step 3: Recruit Participants

Ask your friends, neighbors, family members and co-workers to join your team and help you to spread awareness and reach your team’s fundraising goal through their contacts.

Step 4: Raise Money

The national fundraising average per person is $250 encourage your each of your of your team members to beat the national average. Approach the businesses you frequent, or even better, ask your own company! Lead by example, by making the first donation your own!

Step 5: Create Excitement

Design a team t-shirt or a unique team name, post flyers in your neighborhood, and share information on social media!

Step 6: Celebrate Your Team’s Success

Attend the Walk. Take a team photo. Eat, drink and celebrate raising funds to find cures for Crohn's and colitis! ____________________________________________________________________________________
