Virtual Walk/Run-FUNdraising
Learn how to make it all fall (or walk or run) into place. During this webinar, we’ll talk about a key ingredient to raising money – having FUN! We’ll demonstrate how one organization successfully pivoted during the COVID-19 pandemic and held a Virtual 5K Walk/Run FUNdraiser instead of their annual in-person fundraising events. We’ll walk you through all of the do’s and don’ts, take you through the action steps to pull off a successful Virtual Walk/Run event, and share our winning story.

Presenters:
Nancy J. Minghetti, Executive Director, The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association
Beverly M. Ryan, Director of Development, The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association

Special thanks to AFG's Dialed-In Series Sponsor - David James Group
