I’ve never done this, but looking at their website, it looks like people can donate money to individuals that are participating:

http://www.cff.org/great_strides/donations/

It also looks like if you register with the website, there is a fundraising toolkit, where you can personalize a letter to send to people, asking for donations in your name.

One of my friends did something like this for a diabetes walk.  She sent the letter with donation information to family and friends, and she was able to raise money that way.

Good luck!

This is what I do for a living 🙂

Go ask. Seriously. Go in with your son and ask people to donate.

Post it on your facebook.

Are you able to set up a fundraising website through the org?

I SUCK at asking people for money but I agree that you just have to ask.

Make it personal. Perhaps start with businesses that would be familiar with you and your son. People are more likely to give if they feel like they’re making a difference for someone they know.

Expect to hear “no” a lot but don’t let that stop you from asking. Plus someone who says no right now might end up donating later.
