QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE
“DO I HAVE TO COLLECT THE MONEY?”
No, you do NOT have to collect the money. If your sponsor would like to pay immediately, that is fine, all other sponsors will receive a billing. Just turn in your Sponsor Pledge Forms to the office and the money will be collected through the mail. If your sponsors want to give you money, please collect it and mark “PAID” next to their name, and then turn the money in with your Sponsor Pledge Forms. Checks should be made payable to FCS.
“HOW FAR DO I HAVE TO WALK?”
It is only a 2 mile walk so all ages can participate. You will be asking your family and friends to sponsor you with a single, generous, tax deductible gift for your participation in the 2 mile event, instead of being sponsored on a per mile basis.
“HOW MUCH CAN I RAISE?”
There is no limit and you will be surprised how easy it is! Nine out of ten people will say YES! The more people you ask the more you will help our school.
“WHAT IF IT RAINS?”
No Problem! Arrangements have been made to walk at the main building in Grand Detour if the weather is poor.
“HOW DO I ASK SOMEONE TO SPONSOR ME AND WHO WILL DO IT?”
Simply ask everyone you know… “Will you sponsor me?” You will be surprised at the number of people who will support you. Read the list below!
At work: Co-workers, staff, your boss
Businesses: Doctor, Dentist, Stores
Friends: church, clubs
Mail Out Idea: Use a form letter or a personal letter to invite out-of-town people to sponsor you. Forms are available in the office.
