While every single person who signs up for the 5.7K Championship Race is automatically helping people living with ALS, fundraising is where our supporters truly shine and can offer the most help! Our goal is to raise $220,000 for the ALS community through 5.7K fundraising efforts in 2017! In just a few short steps you’ll be able to set up your team and start fundraising!
Create your fundraising page by clicking here: Network for Good
We have an easy template to get you started, you can add/edit whatever you would like to make it yours. By creating your page, you will have access to sample emails and social media messages to send to friends, family and co-workers encouraging them to join your cause or to say thank you for a donation. Here’s how –
- Create a Team account (even if it’s just you!)
- Enter “ Team [your team name]” in the “First Name” field
- Enter punctuation into the “Last Name” field (We like exclamation points, ourselves…)
- Build your page
- Share your team page URL and/or login information with your teammates – all fundraising will benefit the Team’s goal
- …that’s it!
Your fundraising efforts make it possible for the Brigance Brigade Foundation to offer direct support to people with ALS! Individuals and teams who raise funds for the 5.7K Championship Event will receive appreciation gifts at various levels (all levels in honor of O.J. Brigance’s jersey number, #57!).
As individuals/teams fundraise, they will receive the following items to distribute amongst themselves:
— $157: The team will receive 2 Brigance Brigade baseball caps
— $357: The team will receive 2 hats and 2 Brigance Brigade blankets
— $570: The team will receive 2 hats, 2 blankets, and 2 Brigance Brigade umbrellas
— $1,057: The team will receive 2 hats, 2 blankets, 2 umbrellas, and 2 Amazon Echo Dots
Those not present on race day may pick up their fundraising appreciation gifts at the Brigance Brigade Foundation offices (Hunt Valley, MD) in the 2 weeks following the race by emailing Kelly Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org) to arrange for pick up. Items can also be mailed to you for a modest shipping fee.
We are also very excited to award our top fundraising TEAMS with special prizes….
