Fundraise Your Way: Get Competitive!

by | May 16, 2019

Here at the ALS Association of Texas, we’re dedicated to serving and supporting Texans living with ALS through advocacy, funding research, resources, equipment loans, clinic and more.  We’re only able to do what we do because of YOU, and we appreciate all the ways our community comes together to rally around our mission- creating a world without ALS. One of the ways our community supports this mission is through creative fundraising!

One example of a creative fundraiser is planning a sports-themed event and pitting teams against one another! Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

Pick a sport.

Doesn’t matter what you choose! Pick a sport you and your friends and family love playing and go from there. It could be dodgeball, baseball, golf or even frisbee!

Pick a location.

Ask permission to use a town recreation field, school, church gym, or other large open space. Or use your own backyard!

Find supporters.

Create a fundraising page or Facebook fundraiser to collect donations for your event.

Promote your event.

Use social media to spread the word about your event. While promoting share why you’re passionate about helping to create to world without ALS. Be sure to tag us (@alstexas) and use our hashtag #ALStexas so we can see all the amazing things you’re doing.

Gather supplies.

As your event day nears, collect any equipment you will need. Don’t forget things like water or snacks for your participants.

Have fun!

On your event day, remember to have fun! And take lots of photos/videos for social media!

Sports-themed events are a great way to sneak in some physical activity while having fun for a cause! Ready to lace up your sneakers and get started? Create a fundraiser today!
