FUNDRAISERS

You don't have to run to get involved! You can also DONATE to the cause or make a PLEDGE to a runner or a team and encourage your friends and family to run/walk. 

The #BeAFriend Anti-Bullying 5k Color Fun Run/Walk is one of  RBB's most important fundraisers, so we’re offering a  fundraising mechanism that will allow individuals or groups to raise money for RBB.  Runners as well as non-participants can now become individual fundraisers or they can create fundraising teams.

INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO SET UP A FUNDRAISER

Step by Step for Runners:

1. Navigate to the Race Page.
2. Select Donate from the left-hand sidebar.
3. Select Become a Fundraiser.
4. Enter in a name for your Fundraiser
5. Enter in a goal for your new Fundraiser
6. Add a message to describe your Fundraiser
7. Complete your registration

IMPORTANT: Your 'Fundraiser Name" is different from a 'Fundraiser Team Name.' Fundraising Teams are groups of individual fundraisers who work together towards a common fundraising goal, which is why the norm for "Fundraiser Names" is usually your name. By default, fundraiser names auto-fill to be your name if logged in, because you are the fundraiser.

ANYONE CAN BE A FUNDRAISER!

Even if you're not registering for the race you can still fundraise. Just go to the "Donate" tab on the race page, scroll down the page, and click on the button labeled "Become a Fundraiser." This will open up the personal fundraiser options.

Step by Step for Non-Participants:

1. Navigate to the Race Page.
2. Select Donate from the left-hand sidebar.
3. Select Become a Fundraiser.
4. Fill in your Fundraiser information.

On the "Race Donations" page, the "Become a Fundraiser" section is located at the bottom of the page. Simply click the button for "Become a Fundraiser", and the personal fundraiser options will open up.

Your Information

If you are becoming a fundraiser while not logged into your account, and you are not registering for a race at the time, then you will find a section for "Your Information." Here you will be asked to enter in your First Name, Last Name, Email and a Password. This will create an account for you on RunSignUp, so that you are able to log back into the site and manage your fundraiser.

Fundraiser Page URL

Your "Fundraiser Page URL" can be customized to allow for easier sharing amongst friends and family. Simply enter in text that is unique to your fundraiser after "https://runsignup.com/", and remember that spaces are not permitted in a URL. The URL must contain only alphanumeric characters, underscores (_), or dashes (-).

Personal Message

You can enter in a "Personal Message to Display on Your Fundraising Page." This text can be customized with different headings and content, including links and lists, and will appear on your RunSignUp fundraiser page.

Fundraiser Image

You can upload a "Fundraiser Image" by clicking "Choose File" and selecting one from your computer.

Fundraiser Goals

Enter in the amount of money you hope to collect with donations into the "Your Fundraiser Goal" field. Using the checkboxes, decide whether you would like to "Show Goal Thermometer" and/or if you would like to "Show Scrolling List of Donors."
