Holding an event is a fun way to raise funds all while raising awareness for Novita and the Mighty River Run.Here are a few ideas to spark inspiration:
No matter if there are 20 or 200 people, an event is a great way to catch up with mates and raise money for kids living with disability. Some ways to raise money at any event include:
Update your picture with a picture of your crew from a previous event or social gathering so people know who they are donating too. Also include a message on why you got involved with the Mighty River Run and keep posting updates on your fundraising activities.
Share your page and what you are getting up to in support of kids living with disability regularly on Facebook to let your friends and family know what you are doing and why. Also, don’t be afraid to ask people to share your page too!
Personally email your family and friends and include a link to your online fundraising page. No one is off-limits so try and send it to as many people as you can to raise even more funds! Don’t be scared to send reminder emails either as sometimes people do genuinely just forget. Remember to personalise the story and share from the heart.
If you reach your fundraising goal before the event, don’t stop fundraising, increase your goal!
“When I heard stories of how it helped the kids, meeting many parents, hearing their stories and how much Novita helped them, it just made us want to do it again and raise even more money. We have done sausage sizzles at different markets, sold lucky squares and asked businesses for support. We have held a golf day and a quiz night, as well as selling chocolates and running a silent auction.”
- Stephen McKeown, Crew Captain of Beer Filled Ballasts, first run in 2016
