Fundraising doesn't have to be boring and tedious!

Put the fun in FUNdraising!

Host a party and ask your guests for donations!

Let them know ahead of time that it is a party to help you raise funds. Have a theme for the party—make everyone wear running gear or dress up as their favorite sports celebrity. Give prizes for the best costumes. 

Here are some other ideas of what Team ALF runners did to raise money for last year's Chicago Marathon...

Sam Johnson_LLC Chicago Marathon 2014
Sam Johnson
  • Team ALF alumna and avid animal lover, Kimberly Grauer, walked friends dogs for donations.
  • Team ALF veteran runner, Sam Johnson, hosted a tupperware party for family and friends at her home and raised over $125 for the American Liver Foundation
  • Team ALF alumna, Stacy Brown (Maus), would do good deeds in honor of friends or family. For suggested donations of $10, Stacy would volunteer at her donor's location of choice, i.e. soup kitchen, animal shelter or women's shelter, etc.
