Fundraising Tips

Participation in the Vitality 5K is free—the event relies on fundraising among teams and individuals. To encourage fundraising, PAR is offering the following incentive levels:

  • $75 = 2024 Vitality T-shirt
  • $250 = Vitality T-shirt and Gym Bag
  • Bonus: Every $500 Raised or Donated = 1 Grand Prize Ticket

For successful fundraising, remember the following:

  • Use your personal email to ensure that your message doesn’t go into spam.
  • Reach out to your entire network by email, text, and social media using your Page Link (available under Settings on Your Page).
  • Include friends, family, coworkers, neighbors, and others you are in contact with.
  • Be sure to include a compelling story about your connection to Parkinson’s and Parkinson Association of the Rockies.
  • When you start to reach your fundraising goal, raise it so that potential donors are still encouraged to give.
  • Encourage everyone to register for the walk, join your team if appropriate, and/or donate.
  • Share the incentive information, especially the $75 needed to receive an event T-shirt.

To help promote your fundraising goal, look for information that will appeal to your network. For help, click the Resources tab or About Us to learn more about Parkinson’s disease and the free services provided by Parkinson Association of the Rockies.
