Getting started is easy. Follow these first steps to set up your campaign and get into gear.
- Create your page. Your Participant Center is your fundraising base where you’ll customize your homepage, share your story, send emails, and access fundraising tools. Log in with the username and password from your Welcome email.
- Raise the bar. We recommend setting your goal above $3,000. Many of our Riders find it much easier to exceed the minimum than they expect.
- Lead the pack. Make a self-donation to show how invested you are in this journey. Ask others to match it. This proven method really helps get the ball rolling.
- Make your first ask! Post on social media, email your BFF, call your mom—tell the world what you’re trying to accomplish. People will be blown away by what you’re about to do, and want to support you.
