The truth is, there is no one event that is best for you to run. Supporters have hosted a range of events in recent years from bake sales, to jazz concerts, to paintball tournaments. Choose what works for you. Are you performing a physical challenge in the coming months (running your first 10k, performing an endurance race or climbing a mountain)? That may be a great way to inspire others to support you, as you support Parkinson Society Central & Northern Ontario. What matters is finding something that is meaningful to you, and to your supporters while knowing that you are making a difference.
With that said, here are a few ideas to get you started:
Jeans Day at Work
Everyone loves casual Fridays. Try turning other days into dress down days at your place of work and ask for donations to your event as a price to join in.
Ask some proud ‘chefs’ in your life to prepare their most famous dish. Then have friends and family make a donation for the opportunity to taste each recipe and select a winner!
Host a movie night for your friends and family, with proceeds going to Parkinson Society Canada. Invite a group over to enjoy a new release or classic favourite. Make some popcorn, offer some candy and choice of beverages and charge for the price of admission in support of Parkinson Society Canada.
Book / Movie / Garage Sales
Gather up your old movies and items cluttering up your own and sell them in support of Parkinson Society Canada. You’ve cleaned your home AND supported a good cause!
Hold a Golf event in support of Parkinson Society Canada. Try organizing a golf tournament.
Walk / Run / Bike
Join an official athletic event and raise money to support Parkinson Society Canada at the same time! You can also host your own run or ride in your community.
