Location: Meyer Amphitheater
Fundraising Goal: $75,000
Raised to Date: $9,585 & 19 Teams
Days until Walk: 17

It is Mid-January already!  Time is going by fast and we are now only 17 days away from the West Palm Beach CureSearch Walk!  Walk teams are beginning to pick up momentum and we thank you for your support!

Over the next few weeks, we can all pull together to reach benchmarks and goals.  Only research will cure Childhood Cancer and funds from the walk will support vital clinical trials.  We currently have 19 teams registered and encourage everyone from last year’s walks to return.  We also welcome new families, company teams and donors.  If each team averages $1,860 in new funds raised, we will raise $45,000 and match the funds raised from last year.  If every team recruits 10 people (walkers) and each person raises $100, we will be halfway!  Let’s all start recruiting today and together we can make a difference.  Post on Facebook, send out emails, talk to your friends and family! Get everyone excited to participate in the 2nd Annual West Palm Beach Walk!

Please register your team today if you have not done so already.  The website for the walk is www.curesearchwalk.org/westpalmbeach

Team Spotlight

On walk day, we want every child and team to be in the spotlight.  We will be printing a poster for each team and need a picture of your child and/or family photo you are walking in honor or memory of.  Please email me a photo so we can include your team on the walk route.

Fundraising Tip

Set a team goal…Recruit your team…Send emails for donations

If you have not set a team goal or personal goal, it is easy, remember to log in, go to MY HQ on the tool bar, and edit team page or edit personal page.  If you are having trouble editing or setting your team goal on your page, please email me and I can assist with this feature.  Donors are more inclined to donate if they see that as a team or individual, you have not reached your goal.

Setting a team goal is fun not only for funds you want to raise, but also for people you want to invite to walk and raise funds with you as we celebrate together on walk day.  The money that each walker raises on your team goes towards your team goal.

Please take 10 minutes today to send 10 or more emails from your webpage.  This week is a good time to send out another wave of emails to remind your friends, family, co-workers that the walk is just 17 days away from the walk.  Donations are more often received within the last few weeks leading up to the event.  If you are not familiar with your login page, website HQ, or need assistance with the CureSearch website please do not hesitate to give me a call or send me an email for help.  We are happy to assist.

If you need help navigating your webpage or assistance in uploading pictures, please feel free to email me at Jim.Steiner@curesearch.org
