What Makes Walk-a-thon Fundraising So Great?

  1. Walk-a-thons are great events for the entire family. You don’t need to be a triathlete or marathoner to participate.
  2. Walk-a-thons can be simple to organize. Walk-a-thons are less work and less liability than runs and bike rides.
  3. Walk-a-thons attract true supporters of the organization. A 5K or running event will attract many weekend warriors that attend simply to pay their registration fee, run, and not raise any money for the charity.
  4. A successful Walk-a-thon can bring 100’s and even 1000’s of new donors to your organization.

The Right Walk-a-thon Fundraising Software Can Be the Difference Between Success and Failure

The effectiveness of Walk-a-thon fundraisers is not a secret so many organizations host their own.  This means that prospective walkers and donors have a lot of options to choose from.  If you want people to choose your walk-a-thon, then it should be a great event and not just and obligation.  Great food, shirts, prizes, photo-booths, bounce houses, music, etc… are all components of a great event.

Your Walk-a-thon Software Should Be Able To:

  1. allow walkers to register and set up a fundraising page simultaneously
  2. allow walkers to pick their food choices
  3. allow walkers to select their shirt size
  4. allow walkers to register their kids
  5. allow walkers to register their pets and even give pets their own fundraising page
  6. allow walkers to select times for photos
  7. allow volunteers to register and select from available volunteer shifts
  8. rank the top fundraising walkers
  9. rank the walkers who referred the most people to the event.
