Steps to get started
Take the first steps toward meeting your fundraising goal by familiarizing yourself with helpful resources in the Participant Center. The Participant Center is your fundraising home base. You can customize your personal page, track your goals, send emails and access fundraising tools.
Upload a photo or video and share why you’re raising money for Children’s Hospital Colorado. Participants who update their personal page raise more than participants who do not update their page. Once you customize your fundraising page, connect it to Facebook to streamline your efforts.
Show your friends and family your own commitment to Children’s Colorado patients and families by donating to your own fundraising effort. Then ask as many people as you know to match your gift. That’s how $50 turns into $100, then $150… and pretty soon thousands of dollars for Children’s Colorado kids, families, and caregivers.
Share your story through social media, email or word of mouth. Include a link to your fundraising page that you set up in step one. You’re doing something amazing – Share it with the world to inspire others to join you in supporting Children’s Colorado.
