Welcome to our TEAMS page, a place for teams to celebrate success, and share fundraising ideas.
Team Fundraising Info and Ideas
A great way to raise additional money for your team is to get everyone involved by setting a goal and coming up with creative and fun ways to reach that goal! There are lots of ideas for team fundraisers including:
Holding a social or special event where all team members can invite their friends and family is a very popular way for teams to fundraise. There are many ideas including, block parties, murder mysteries, game or trivia nights and silent auctions.
Holding sporting tournaments such as hockey, baseball, bowling, golf or even virtual video game tournaments are a fun and active way for people to raise money and get involved.
Team members should inquire with their employer to see if the company will match the dollars raised by their team.
- Fundraising online is a quick and convenient way to reach out to your supporters, family and friends.
- Customizing your own personal page and your teams page will ensure your personal BRIGHT Run message and reason for participating is there for everyone to see.
- A personal message results in more connections, greater awareness and increased donations for BRIGHT Run.
