This is the perfect time to start planning your fundraising event on behalf of the Parkinson’s Unity Walk. We’re just starting to hear from several of our teams to let us know that they are re-creating their successful fundraisers from last year.
Some examples are Team Rossi’s 2nd Annual Community Nights at Blue Moon Café and their 3rd Annual Zumbathon, Debina’s Dream’s 3rd Annual Volley for a Cure and 2nd Annual Soup for the Soul; Deen’s Daytrippers’ 2nd Annual Pasta for Parkinson’s; and the 3rd Annual Alabama Parkinson’s Fighter Walk.
No need to recreate the wheel! Do you see the word ANNUAL in each of those fundraiser titles? None of these walkers necessarily intended to do these events each year when they planned the first one but once they came up with their winning formula, they’ve decided to go with a sure thing. Many of these events have become a reunion of sorts and something the team’s supporters look forward to each year.
Talk to your team members. Together, brainstorm to come up with your own “winning formula.” Looking for ideas? Check out the Fundraising Event Ideas A-Z and the Parkinson’s CHAMP in Action page on our website. This is where we highlight the fundraisers our walkers create to raise funds for research. More tools are available on the Your Fundraising Events page and we’re only a phone call away if you want to discuss any of your fundraising ideas.
Look forward to hearing from you soon with your “winning formula” fundraising ideas.
