Tips for Raising Money

Don't forget to ask everyone you meet to support you in your walk-a-thon. Ask them for $10 or $20 - small amounts can make a difference! Ask not only your co-workers, family and friends, but your hair dresser or barber, your mail carrier, your kids' teachers, your clients, your baker, your favorite store owners and others you interact with regularly. See DoJiggy's Participant Fundraising Library for fundraising ideas and tips, sample letters, a detailed User Guide to the Participant Control Panel, and more!


Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and clothing, along with sunglasses and a hat or other sun protection. You may want to bring rain gear too.  This is a rain or shine event!
