Become a Fun Run Ambassador!
We want to make sure this year's virtual event is meaningful and powerful.
But we need your help.
Use the resources below to help us promote the run and raise necessary funds. All proceeds from the run benefit The Living Legacy Foundation's continued efforts to support organ, eye, and tissue donor families and raise awareness for the need for donor designation.
Recruitment and Fundraising Tips
Check out our tips for recruiting members for your team and soliciting donations towards your fundraising goal.
Fundraise through Facebook! You can easily share your fundraiser and collect donations. Learn how to set it up here.
Request your own customized "Join My Team!" graphic here. Share it with friends and family on social media or via text and email! *
Start early and set objectives and deadlines for your team's size and fundraising goals. Use your personal page through the Donate Life Fun Run RunSignup to do this. Make sure you personalize your page with your story and photographs. (For more info on how to do this, check out "Making the Most of the RunSignup Website" tips)
It's important to be specific and ASK, ASK, ASK! Ask anyone and everyone to join your team. Feel free to invite team members by sending them the URL to your team page (it's easiest if you copy and paste).
Spread the message through social media! Use our Facebook and Twitter cover photos (download links below) on your profile pages or invite friends to the Facebook event. (For more social media tips, check out our Social Media Tips.)
Send emails asking for financial donations with links to your personal fundraising page. Remember to share your personal connection to donation and why this cause means so much to you.
Send out "Thank You" emails or notes, especially when you reach big milestones! Make everyone feel appreciated and let them know their generosity is getting you closer and closer to your fundraising goal.
Build a pyramid. Ask each member of your team to recruit three more people to join. You'll find your team growing very quickly. Remember to tell them it's FREE!
