School is out, pools are open, and grills are fired up. Whether you want to make the most of the warm weather or you’re just looking for a way to get the kids involved, make this summer count by raising money to fund research that helps kids with cancer. Here are five ideas to get you started.
1. Sports Challenge: Take advantage of the summer weather and organize a competition with a suggested donation for entering. Take it to the sand for a game of beach volleyball or the park for some summertime favorites like soccer, football, even frisbee golf. You can also beat the heat and host an indoor 3v3 basketball tournament like long time participant, Bodie with Buckets for St. Baldrick’s.
2. Car Wash: A car wash is an easy way to bring your community together for a good cause. Be sure to choose a visible location, whether it’s at a park, neighborhood common area, or school. Get supplies donated, post flyers, and ask for a minimum donation with each wash. While people are waiting, be sure to have refreshments nearby along with St. Baldrick’s information to learn more about how they can make a difference.
3. Party for a Purpose: Celebrate the end of the school year, or a summer birthday, with a poolside fundraiser. Hold a diving or best cannonball contest and ask a local Honored Kid to be the judge. Display a goal line to see how far you can get or collect donations in lieu of gifts. Don’t forget the sunblock and make sure to have a lifeguard on duty!
4. Summer Field Day: Recreate a classic outing that both adults and kids will love. Include a three-legged race, water balloon toss, corn hole competition, and tug-of-war. Register your fundraiser to keep track of participants and support kids with cancer. Everyone will be a winner!
5. Game Night: Host a trivia tournament, or a good old-fashioned game night fundraiser with your Scrabble boards, poker chips, or Bunco. Ask players for a minimum donation to partake in the fun! See what this mom does in honor of her son, Alan.
You don’t have to be a lifeguard to save kids’ lives. This summer, start a fundraiser for childhood cancer research.
