Become a Fundraiser

You can make a big difference by becoming an event fundraiser. We're using a “peer to peer” system this year which lets you set up an individual or team fundraising page.

The pages are pre-built for your convenience and allow you to add a personal message. You can share your page on social media and via email. You can create a team page, getting others to join your fundraising efforts, or connect to an existing team.

No matter which way you do it, becoming a fundraiser and spreading the word amplifies your efforts.

Before you click the button below, please review the fundraising page setup guide.
