Cancer Fundraising Walk Ideas

As you probably already know, cancer fundraising walks are one of the most popular and effective ways to help raise funds and awareness for cancer research. Obviously the most common way that cancer fundraising walks raise money is via donations raised by the walkers themselves, but there are many other ideas that often aren’t as apparent. If you make the best use of the time and space available at your cancer walk, these fundraising ideas can really help boost your profits.

With a cancer fundraising walk, a lot of emphases is put on gaining donations and pledges before the day of the event, but there’s a lot of potential for extra fundraising opportunities that can happen at the event itself. For example, have you thought about having food and drink booths at your walk? If people are going to be at the site for several hours, they are going to get bored, hungry, and thirsty. You can use this to your advantage by implementing some choice fundraising ideas for your cancer fundraising walk. Why not sell fundraising candy or fundraising scratch cards in addition to the food booths? The possibilities for fundraising ideas are nearly endless, and you will have a very attentive audience who are already more than happy to dig deep in their pockets for your cancer fundraiser.

Corporate sponsorship is another cancer fundraising walk idea. Participating companies can trade advertising space for donations, or have their own booths at the cancer fundraising walk to help the cause. This benefits the sort of trade benefits, everyone.

With everyone working together toward a common goal, it should be fairly easy to make a good profit at your cancer fundraising walk with these supplementary ideas. Just make sure you take advantage of every moment possible and make the best use of the space available at the event to ensure that your cancer fundraising walk is the biggest success it can possibly be.
