The 2016 Summer of Fun-draising contest is in the books! Congratulations to contest winner, Tina Duncan, who is the team captain of Luca’s Racers of the SMILE on Down Syndrome’s SMILE Mile walk event in Evansville, Indiana.
This year, we had 11 different fundraising ideas submitted across multiple walks and states. Why do we do this contest? Team fundraising is a key piece in helping Down syndrome organizations reach their walk fundraising goals. In fact, our research reports show of the teams who held team fundraisers last year, the events on average raised $1500 in additional donations towards the team’s goal.
The more money raised for a walk event, the more support the local Down syndrome organization can provide to families in the community!
If you are a team captain looking to do a team fundraiser, we encourage you to check out our Summer of Fun-draising Facebook album, which has ideas from the last two years of the contest all in one album!
