HOW CAN I HELP?
Fundraising and Marathon E-News
Join the grassroots fundraising efforts with families and friends of the A-T Children's Project. Each year, more than 500 members around the United States and Canada fundraise and/or participate in athletic events. Research to find life-improving therapies and, ultimately, a cure for A-T is only possible because of their efforts.
As one of our volunteer fundraisers, you will have access to resources to turn your fundraising idea into a great success, including:
- A-T Children's Project event supplies, including banners, customized invitations and sponsor forms, brochures, t-shirts, thank you letters to donors, press releases, and more
- Athlete training, including schedules, videos, and more
- Staff Support – The A-T Children’s Project has small but dedicated staff willing and able to provide you with all of the tools and support you need as you help raise funds to find a cure for A-T, including planning, budgeting, and online ticket pages.
- Mentors – Network with other A-T Children’s Project volunteer fundraisers. It’s a great opportunity to speak with others who have walked in your shoes for the best advice.
