Hi Everyone,
I hope we can get at least 30 people signed up on our Furry Scurry Team "Bernese Mountain Dogs and Friends". The sooner you sign up - the more chance you have to raise money for this great cause!  Our team goal is $5000, and to stay in the Top 5 fundraising teams (we are currently 6th).

Here are some fundraising tips:

  1. Join the team! (See instructions below)
  2. Send an email or letter to all of your friends, family and co-workers asking them to join us or donate to the team. Set a deadline and suggested amount.
  3. Post to social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc) with a link to your personal fundraising page.
  4. Find out of your company does matching - or ask donors if their company does matching!
  5. Put brochures or posters up at work or at your desk as a conversation starter. (I still have about 15 bags of brochures)
  6. Put a message on your company or local bulletin board asking for support for our team.
  7. Make a list of people you know, and how much you are going to ask for.
  8. Set a goal for yourself and share it with the people you are asking to support you.
  9. Remind people that their donation is tax deductible.
  10. Ask, ask, and ask again! :-)

If you have any questions please let me know.

What: The Furry Scurry is the largest fund-raising dog walk in the country. It is a 2 mile walk around Washington Park, and they are expecting @ 12,000 people and 5,000 dogs - and to raise over 1 million dollars! There are also more than 150 pet-related booths at the "Flea-less Market" which is located before the starting line.

For Whom: It raises funds for the Dumb Friends League - which is an amazing animal rescue place that has been around since 1910! They have four locations in Colorado and provide amazing services and care for all kinds of homeless animals. To read more:

When: May 4, 2013 - Our team will meetup around 7:30 am. It's best to get there early for parking...
