Sample Social Media/Participant Center Posts:
The best way to get donations is to craft an engaging message for your social media account or participant center. That way, when your friends, family and colleagues see your post or go to your page on the website, they will know what you are fundraising for and how they can help.
Here are a few samples below to help inspire you! These are just examples, so make it personal as to why YOU are walking.
