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 fliers 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! ____________________________________________________________________________________
