Hi Brandy,

Thank you for supporting and participating in MFB09! To answer your question, no everyone does not need to raise money to walk with you on your team. We do, however, ask that you register ALL members of your team on your team page. Then you can explain how easy it is for your team members to send an email to their family and friends asking for their support. Most people are surprised on how easy it really is…and how willing people are to give! You may consider asking your team members to save their spare change and make their own donation on their personal page to support your overall team page! Keep us posted and good luck!

This year we set a really large goal of $10,000. We raised over $3,000 last year on just personal donations, so I think we can do it!

We’re doing two big fundraisers in April, A Spaghetti feed/Karaoke Night with raffle, drawing and silent auction. The other is a car wash the weekend before.

I LOVE the idea of asking people to save and donate their spare change!

I know a lot of teams sell candy and we usually get the flyer for it at our kick off party. We’re anxious to get started early this year and wondered if anyone had the website so we could get the candy on order? Thanks in advance, and happy walking : )
