Now through September 1, 2020, The Ohio Association of Blind Students, a division of the National Federation of the Blind of Ohio is proud to announce the Summer 2020 Walkathon. Donors can pledge a contribution for every mile a participant of your choosing walks, or contribute a set amount. Teams that are representative of the various chapters and divisions within the organization will be competing in a friendly manner to collectively meet the fundraising goal.
All proceeds will be split 75/25 between the NFB Ohio affiliate and the student division.
Our goal for this fundraiser is 1000 dollars. This is a virtual walkathon through RallyUp.com.
The premise is for members of the NFB of Ohio and chapters and divisions to sign up as either a participant or a donor on this website. Donors can pick a participant to sponsor or they can directly donate to the fund.
The participants are the ones who will be walking. They may choose to either join a team or walk individually. We hope for chapters and divisions to be the teams. All participants will have to sign up with an account on the website to participate.
This will be on an honor system because there is no way to track who walks what through the platform. You can sign up as a donor or as a walker (also known as a participant). If you sign up as a donor then you can choose if you want to challenge a participant to walk a certain amount and you will donate some amount for each mile they walk. If you \are also signing up as a donor then you can also choose to just donate a set amount regardless of the amount a participant walks. Participants should reach out to your personal circles such as friends and families in order to gain donors for your walking efforts.
We are very excited to launch this walkathon and we hope you all can join us! I also hope this can help some of us get out of the house and enjoy some fresh air and exercise. Participants must click the participant button on the upper right to sign up to walk.
