Thank you for signing up for the CureSearch Walk, a unique event that raises money to fund ongoing clinical trials at local hospitals as well as innovative research. At CureSearch, our goal is to help you every step of the way, ensuring that you have everything you need to meet your fundraising goal and enjoy the CureSearch Walk experience.
When you joined the Walk, you received an email about accessing your headquarters page, called My HQ. This is your very own page to customize as you like. You can set a fundraising goal, post photos of a child (or children) you are walking in honor of, and most importantly, send emails to family and friends asking them to support you financially or by joining you for the event.
In addition to your HQ page, CureSearch is here to be your fundraising coach and help you come up with creative ways to raise money for you and your Walk team. First and foremost, each Walk is managed by a community development manager who will act as your CureSearch point of contact helping you create a successful walk.
As the Walk gets closer, you will receive information from your community development manager about the Walk’s venue, the schedule of the event and activities taking place (like face painting and balloon animals), and the opening ceremony. If you’ve never participated in a CureSearch Walk before, the opening ceremony will be especially moving for you. There, we not only take time to honor the children who fought the fight but lost the battle, we also call all current and past patients to the stage for a medal ceremony honoring them as CureSearch Champions. From there, these very special children lead the Walk carrying a banner that reads “These are the Reasons We Walk.”
