Tips on Building Your Fundraising Page

We know this website is new to everyone, and we want to help you run a successful fundraising page to fund pancreas cancer research! Here are some quick tips on making your page successful:

 

  • Add photos: you can add photos to your team or individual page in the body of your description or to the main photo slideshow; there are two spots open for you to fill, and those pictures will only show up on YOUR page; people are sympathetic to photos that show real people in real life--so don't be afraid to share!
  • Tell your story: Why are you involved with this particular pancreas cancer fundraiser? How did you get here? Are you riding for yourself or a loved one? How did it affect your life? Help donors sympathize with your story.
  • Share your page: Email your friends and family and tell them about your ride and that you want their support; post a link to your page on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter--wherever!--and tell people to share your post for more visibility.

 

Thank you to our sponsors:
