Each week we’ll be featuring posts from special guests designed to help get you ready for the big day. From nutrition info, to training tips, to motivational stories – each post will have valuable info to support your journey, all the way to the Peak!
Seek the Peak is just over a week away and we can hardly contain our excitement! It’s almost time for all the training and hard work to pay off as we tackle those race day hills. Not only does Seek the Peak celebrate personal achievement but it also raises valuable funds for the BC Cancer Foundation. Whether you’re fundraising as part of a team or as an individual, every dollar you raise goes towards lifesaving work in the fight against breast cancer. As an added incentive, the top team and top individual fundraisers will win a case of delicious wine from Sumac Ridge Estate Winery to celebrate.
1. SECURE YOUR FIRST
DONATION TODAY: Think of the people who you know
will donate to your fundraising
efforts—your partner, family,
friends, co-worker, boss, etc.
2. GET TO KNOW YOUR
PAGE: Personalize your page with a
photo, and take advantage of the
draft letters and other email tools
in the Participant Centre.
3. TELL YOUR STORY: Who inspired you to do this? Your
donors will be more inclined to
give if they know why you are
4. SEND AN EMAIL TO
EVERYONE YOU KNOW: Think wider than family and friends—
local businesses, work, sporting
clubs, etc. Remember to include
the link to your personal fundraising
page in any email you send out.
5. GET ACTIVE ON
SOCIAL MEDIA: 90% of donations now come in
online. Share your story and a link to
your personal page over your social
networks. We suggest Facebook,
Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram.
6. SET YOUR GOAL HIGH: When you get within $100 of your
goal, increase your total!
