Spring Forward with JDRF

It is time to spring forward and get a running start on walk fundraising! Each week in April, walkers will have an opportunity to have fun rallying their teams while competing for some great prizes! In addition to weekly challenges, the individual who raises the most money during the month of April will win …(drum roll please!) … 4 one-day park hopper passes to Disney World! See below for the weekly challenges and get started today!

Challenge #1: This is no April fool’s joke! From April 1-7, connect your walk participant center to Facebook and receive one donation to be entered to win $30 in game play at Dave & Busters. For every additional donation that you receive through Facebook you will receive a bonus entry. If you do not have Facebook, please contact Lauren at Lvanosten@jdrf.org and we will send you an alternative challenge.

Challenge #2: From April 8-14, send 10 emails through your participant center and be entered to win a one night stay for two at the Hyatt Downtown. For every additional email after the initial 10, you will receive a bonus entry. The emails need to be sent through the participant center in order for them to be tracked.

Challenge #3: From April 15-21, the individual who receives the highest number of donations will receive a $50 Tops Friendly Markets Gift Card. We are not counting the amount of money you receive, we will be counting the number of donations. In order to receive credit for participating, you must receive one donation.

Challenge #4: Take me out to the ball game! From April 22-28, tell us why you are participating in the JDRF One Walk on social media with the tag #BuffaloJDRFOneWalk and be entered to throw out the first pitch at the Buffalo Bison’s game on Saturday, May 18. Once completed, please send us a screenshot of the post. Don’t have social media? Send a photo and why you participate in the JDRF One Walk to Lauren at Lvanosten@jdrf.org and we will post on our chapter page.

GRAND PRIZE: The individual who participates in 3 out of the 4 above challenges and raises the most money during the month of April will receive 4 one-day park hopper passes to Disney World! (Park Hopper passes expire 8/6/2020)

*Only online donations will count towards challenges and prizes. Proceeds from third party events will not be counted towards the totals
