Welcome to the 2018 i am CAH Walk/Runs!

Find a Walk/Run to join and become a social fundraiser; which offers people a way to help spread the word about a cause through their social networks and their friends’ networks, and their friends' networks, etc. You can see the potential for awareness building AND fundraising using social fundraising - and it works for supporters who may or may not attend the event. If you plan to attend, you also have the option of putting together a team of walkers/runners and inviting people to join you and donate on your behalf. These Walk/Runs are an important part of our fundraising and awareness-raising efforts each year. We are so proud that our Walk/Runs are growing in popularity because this means we are reaching more and more people with every step!

 

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW TO GET STARTED

  • A SOCIAL FUNDRAISER is one who sets up a social fundraising page* and actively shares the event via social media to encourage participation and donations
  • An ATTENDEE is one who plans to attend the walk/run and Social Fundraiser 
  • Every ATTENDEE (age 5 and up) & SOCIAL FUNDRAISER MUST REGISTER to attend the event (setting up a social fundraising page does NOT mean you are registered to attend the event)
  • Every SOCIAL FUNDRAISER must create a login or login on the CARES Community Portal to create or access a a social fundraising page. ATTENDEES do not have to create a login unless the want to start or join a team 
  • In order to START OR JOIN A TEAM, you must first become a SOCIAL FUNDRAISER; ATTENDEES who want to join your team as TEAM MEMBERS, must also set up a SOCIAL FUNDRAISING page
  • SOCIAL FUNDRAISERS have the option whether or not to actively share their page and/or fundraise (often, ATTENDEES set up a SOCIAL FUNDRAISING page only so that they can join a team)
  • Registered ATTENDEES have the option of simply registering to attend without starting or joining a TEAM or setting up a SOCIAL FUNDRAISING page
