To learn more about fundraising to support the Pinky Swear Foundation, please contact Joe Zander, Community Fundraising Manager at  joe.zander@pinkyswear.org.

Get Ready. Get Set. Fundraise!

Pinky Swear Foundation fundraising events have historically had a registration fee to cover the costs of putting on a fundraising event, as well as provide a small donation to the Foundation. 

New This Year: We are eliminating registration fees and instead encouraging participants to fundraise their participation fees. We ask that you fundraise a minimum of $50 to participate in the Hy-Vee Pinky Swear Kids Triathlon ($15 dollars covers your event t-shirt, swim cap, medal and event overhead. $35 goes to support Pinky Swear Foundation and our mission of helping kids with cancer). 

So what does this mean? Instead of paying a registration fee of $50 like you have done in the past, we are encouraging you to start a fundraiser. Whether you share your fundraiser online (Facebook, email, etc.), host a lemonade stand in your neighborhood, a “Give Back Night” at your favorite restaurant or something else - $50 can be raised in minutes! Instead of paying your own way into the event, spread awareness for the organization and ask your community to support you.

But I do not want to participate in fundraising, what can I do? If you really do not want to fundraise, you can make a $50 gift to your page to cover your participation minimum (Just like paying a registration fee!), but we encourage you to think about how easy it could be to create a small fundraiser to raise that money. THINK OF HOW MANY MORE KIDS YOU CAN HELP IF YOU RAISE MORE THAN $50!

There are more families with a kid battling cancer in this country than Pinky Swear Foundation can support. It is our goal to minimize that gap, but we need YOUR help. The more money we raise, the more families we can support. Please consider starting a fundraiser and help Pinky Swear Foundation support families who have children with cancer when they need it most!
