It’s Not Over Yet…

Stairclimb might be done, but you still have 18 days to fundraise!! The fundraising deadline closes on March 23rd and there are plenty of amazing incentive prizes to be had:

  • If you raise $250, you can choose between a $25 gift card from Sport Chek or Best Buy and you also get entered into a trip for two to Paris to climb the Eiffel Tower! (For every $100 you raise over $250, your name gets entered again!)
  • If you raise $500, you can choose between a $50 gift card from Sport Chek or Best Buy
  • If you raise $750, you can choose between a $75 gift card from Sport Chek or Best Buy
  • If you raise over $1000, you get a pair of Adidas running shoes of your choice from Rackets and Runners

Here are a few more ideas to help bump up your fundraising totals!!

  • Host a garage sale and add all the proceeds to your fundraising efforts!
  • Hold a bake sale at work – you’ll raise money AND your co-workers’ spirits! (Who doesn’t love cupcakes??)
  • Host a car wash with your kids on the weekend. Not only are you raising money, you are teaching your children the value of fundraising for a good cause! What a great way to spend a Sunday morning!
  • Throw a party! You throw them anyway – why not use them as an opportunity to fundraise? Instead of a hostess gift, ask for small donations towards your goal for the climb. Here are some party ideas for you: wine tasting, cocktail party, clothing swap and cheese tasting.

Good luck with your fundraising. If you get stuck, feel free to get in touch with me at collins@bc.lung.ca or 6047315864 – I’m here to help!

Help us reach our goal of $250,000!
