Set Your Goals High!  

While we don't have a set minimum, give yourself an easy goal of $100 or higher! This does not have to be the ceiling for your personal goal; when considering your fundraising goal, set your sights high. We know with the right effort you will not only reach your minimum but surpass it!

Use Your Personal Page!

After you register for Sneakers and Strays, login and personalize your individual webpage. In your participant centre you can tell your story, explain why you are participating, post a photo, and accept pledges. Using the link to your personal page is an easy way to direct people to your fundraising efforts and keep them up to date on all of your progress and training.

Who Can You Ask? 

Take time and make a list of all the people you know- friends, family, neighbors, co-workers. Go through your address book and friend lists. Think about the people who have asked you for fundraising support before. Don’t leave anyone out. Once you have a list written, write the method by which you will contact each person for a donation. This can include an email, a letter, a fundraising party, or a face-to-face meeting.

Expand Your Circle. 

Word of mouth is a great way to increase your fundraising. Give your friends and family extra donation forms to pass out or provide them with your personal online fundraising page. Ask them to talk to people about the event and your participation in it.  Ask close friends if they know of anyone who might be interested in pledging you.

Track Your Progress. 

Use the on-line follow-up tool on your personal page to keep track of your donors so you know who to follow-up with and who to thank. This is a great tool to keep you organized and on target.

Thank Donors. 

After you have initially contacted people, it is important to follow-up. People these days are busy and are often asked to donate. By making a real effort to get in contact with people, they will know you are serious about this event and cause. Making follow-up phone calls will dramatically improve your fundraising progress.

Fundraise As A team!

Get together with your friends, family, or co-workers to fundraise as a Team. (five members maximum). Challenge those folks over in the accounting department or those other guys or gals at your favorite watering hole. Great prizes for the members of the winning team!
