26th Annual Case for Kids

C4K 2017 webpage header - new March 20 2017 (1)

Despite the rainy forecast, the weather held off and the 26th Annual Case for Kids was a total success!  So far we’ve raised $82,000 for local children & youth programs in high priority neighbourhoods.  Donations can still be made online. See below for details.

Who Can Participate?

Individuals, teams, sponsors, vendors, donors and families are welcome and encouraged to participate in Case for Kids.

Getting Started

Case for Kids Walk, Run, Ride is a pledged event. Create your own online profile to collect donations from friends, family and colleagues. It’s fun and easy! Once you’ve created your personal fundraising page, you’ll be given a unique link that you can send to people to make secure online donations on your behalf.

If you’d rather collect donations off-line, you can download a pledge sheet here. Please note that in-person pledges and donations can be brought to the registration booth at Bayfront Park on the day of the walk, or can be mailed to or dropped of at 52 Catharine St N in Hamilton.

If you’re ready, you can set up your own personal online fundraising page* here or use the button below.

Fundraising Tips

Since Case for Kids is a pledged event, it’s success relies on participants like you reaching out to family and friends to receive donations. This can be daunting, especially if it’s your first time taking part in this event. Don’t worry though, you’re fundraising for a very important cause and you’ll find that people are much more receptive to giving than you may have first thought.

With that being said, here are a few tips we’ve compiled to help you earn your first pledges.

  1. Make a donation yourself, and challenge your friends and family to match it! This is a very helpful tactic that displays your commitment to the cause and is very inspiring for your cohorts.
  2. Be specific with your donation requests. You want to make it as easy as possible for people to donate to your online page, and by requesting specific and manageable amounts (10,15,25 dollars etc.) you’re taking a lot of the guess work out of donating.
  3. Set a total fundraising goal and ask people to help you reach it. This way, you can ask people in your network for only a small amount. People like to contribute towards goals for a good cause, and we’ve seen lots of success with this format.
  4. Accompany your pitch to prospective donors with a personal story. Tell them why Case for Kids is especially important to you, and you’ll find donations easier to come by. People these days are inundated with donation requests and those accompanied with a story tend to be the ones that stick.
