BIKE MS UTAH SUPERSTAR TIP #6: 3 WAYS TO GET YOUR FUNDRAISING ON THE MOVE AND HIT YOUR $250 MINIMUM (OR ROCKET TO THE STARS)

Whether you’re just starting to raise funds to crush MS or are well on your way, these great tips will give you mileage.

1. Crank it up with a self-donation

Did you know, riders who make a self-donation raise 3x more than their counterparts?

To give, login to your Participant Center at bikeMS.org > My Events > Select “Make a Personal Donation.”

2. Tell others why you ride on your Bike MS personal donation page

Login to your Participant Center at bikeMS.org > My Events > Personalize your fundraising page and URL.

Bonus: See how other riders tell their stories.

3. Email your friends through the Participant Center

Login to your Participant Center at bikeMS.org > Send an email. The templates provided are just a guide. For the best results, personalize your message with the reason you ride (a snippet of your story).

Note: Emails sent from the Participant Center automatically embed a link to your fundraising web page, so you’re all set.


J.R.’s Tip: If you’re sending out a “Please Support Me” email blast, send it first thing on a Friday morning (PAYDAY) and then follow it up with another the following Friday. Wait a couple of weeks and then repeat the process. Many people will respond to the very first email but others may need a few reminders before they donate.
