One way to share the work of our agency and mission is to become a charity team fundraiser! Below are simple ways to fundraise for this event:
1. Sign up for the race and to become a fundraiser or start a fundraising team during registration: Reach out to your friends, family, colleagues, and local businesses to donate to help reach your team’s over-all goal while raising epilepsy awareness!
2.Set your goal: We suggest $500 for individuals and $2,000 for teams.
Those who raise $250+ become an official charity team member and earn a special charity team member t-shirt.
Those who raise $500+ get the charity team t-shirt and their race entry re-funded back to them.
2. Fund-Your-Run: Get sponsored for your run! Ask friends, family, and co-workers to sponsor you per mile. This is an easy way to get others involved and to quickly reach your personal fundraising goal.
All proceeds from the race will go directly to our agency’s local programs and services which assist those affected by epilepsy in Northeast Ohio. To read about the agency programs and services click here.
