It’s important. It’s essential. It can also be a little intimidating. We have 100% faith that YOU can reach your fundraising goal! Your Walker Coach will work with you personally to develop a step-by-step fundraising plan that perfectly fits your busy life! Log in to your Participant Centre for more fundraising tools and resources.
We all have a story and this is your chance to tell yours. Once you’ve registered, log in to the Participant Centre and get started by updating your profile photo and Personal Page story.
Write down the names of all the people in your life — family, friends, neighbours, co-workers, family doctor, auto mechanic — don’t leave anyone out. You know a lot of people!
After registering, send a simple email to all of your contacts and don’t forget to include your Personal Page link. Include a note about why you are committed to OneWalk and inspire your donors to support you!
After a week, follow up with a phone call to everyone you emailed to secure a donation if they haven’t already donated online. You can also log in to your Participant Centre where you will find emails already written for you to send as follow-ups and thank-yous.
Reach people you’ve never met!
Have everyone you email forward your donation request to their friends and family. Use social media like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to share your journey and encourage others to support you. Have family and friends distribute donation forms for you and talk to their contacts about supporting your OneWalk.
There are several ways you can ask your company to support you! Talk to management about a donation from the company or about donation matching. Corporate teams are also a great way to increase your fundraising all while encouraging camaraderie and adding to your company’s social responsibility.
Extend your fundraising reach by including the OneWalk email badge every time you click send! Personalized just for you, the email badge will display your fundraising goal and progress and link directly to your Personal Page where donations can be made. Log in and download today!

Engage your friends and family with our app for Facebook and expand your fundraising efforts to your social network. Once you download the app, you can share your fundraising progress, message your friends to support you, thank your donors, and use the OneWalk images for your profile picture and cover photo.
You may have heard the recent news that Facebook has now enabled fundraising tools across Canada. Facebook Fundraisers are a valuable tool to help you utilize the platform to fundraise from friends and family for your Walk.
It is important to know that Facebook Fundraisers do not automatically integrate with your OneWalk fundraising account. Before you get started, we wanted to provide you with guidelines to be sure you set up your Facebook Fundraiser in a way that is able to be tracked and credited to your OneWalk fundraising efforts.
