Get your workplace or child’s school involved in your PedalFest fundraising efforts! Have them host a day where participants can donate $1 to wear jeans and a T-shirt or something they normally can’t wear, for example. Even the simplest of ideas can go a long way!
While PedalFest is about inviting riders of all levels from near and far—focus some of your efforts on what’s right under your nose. A fun (and delicious) way to do so would be to ask a local restaurant to donate a portion of one night’s sales to your PedalFest campaign!
Take a day to put on a car wash, garage sale or bake sale and have the proceeds benefit your campaign. You can also put on your best smile and host a Scentsy and Mary Kay party or even a poker tournament where a portion of those profits go to your fundraising efforts.
The greater the reach, the greater the awareness. Spread the news of your efforts and of Heartspring Pediatric Services on your favorite social media pages. Be sure to follow the excitement on Heartspring’s Facebook and Twitter (@Heartspring) pages and use #PedalFest2017 to keep an eye on what your fellow cyclists are saying!
No contribution is too small and no idea is too far-fetched when it comes to spreading awareness! Your efforts, whatever the size, will benefit the children and that’s what matters most.
