Step #5: Kickoff Event

Building lots of excitement at your organization’s upcoming event will take creative ways to communicate what the event is, why you have decided to do it, and provide details leading up to the event day. Creating signs, posters and fun announcements are perfect ways to gather interest and even involve the entire organization in the process.

Key Tasks for a Strong Kickoff:

  1. Introduce the Clap4Health!℠ Event to everyone in your organization.
  2. Have your organization create and hang signs/posters around the organization for Kickoff day.
  3. Send info home with everyone on Kickoff day: Explain the purpose of the event and share why physical fitness is so important to healthy lives. Post info on your web site/social media too!
  4. Clearly explain how everyone will gather donations and set individual fundraising goals. Give a deadline for all donations and specific instructions on where to donate.
