Fun(draising) Friday 9/20/13

I’ve had a pretty good week of fundraising! I knew I needed to kick my fundraising into high gear after vacation. I got a great idea from our Team Challenge mentors and endurance manager to do $13 on 13. I posted a bunch of stuff on Facebook and Twitter and had some success getting donations from family and friends. Thank you to everyone who has donated!

So far, I’ve raised $1,243! I’m so excited that I broke the $1,000 threshold, but I still have a long way to go. While $1,243 is a lot of money, it’s actually only 34% of my fundraising goal. So, I’m continuing to plug away at sending out donation requests!

Another thing I’m doing is contacting businesses for donations to a group fundraising event that the MN/Dakotas Chapter of Team Challenge is putting on. Check out details below! It’s a brunch featuring local musicians, a silent auction, and wine grab. Should be a lot of fun, and of course the best part is it raises money for CCFA!

Do you have any other good fundraising ideas for me? Ideas for things I could do if people donate (e.g., cartwheels at the finish line, get a picture with an Elvis impersonator)?
