When you registered for the Victory Ride to Cure Cancer presented by Braswell Family Farms, you joined a community of passionate riders who want to stop cancer. The money you and your fellow cyclists raise will help the V Foundation declare Victory Over Cancer®. 100% of rider-raised funds benefits cancer research.
You are on our team, and we are here to help. There are lots of tools to inspire you in the Participant Center, and you can reach us at [email protected].
In order to participate in the Victory Ride, riders must meet their fundraising minimums ($250 for all distances) by Wednesday, September 2. If you have not met your minimum by September 2, you will have the option to pay the balance with a credit card if you wish to ride on September 5.
*The minimum age for these rides is 15. Participants aged 15 – 17 need to be accompanied by a registered adult during the Victory Ride. The minimum age for the spin ride option is 13. Participants aged 13 – 17 still need to be accompanied by a registered adult during the Victory Ride.
How to Ask for Support
The number one reason people donate is because they were asked. Your friends and family won’t know what you are doing or how they can support you if you don’t ask! Remember, you're not asking for a gift for yourself. You are giving others an opportunity to support cancer research.
Start by making a list of everyone you know. You never know who might be willing to support you (family, friends, colleagues, your doctor, business you frequent, the delivery person, etc.) or who has been touched by cancer.
Build your fundraising request with these four easy steps:
- Share your story! Explain why cancer research is so important and how it impacts you.
- Address what you are doing about it.
- Ask your donor to take a specific action.
- Give your donor a chance to respond.
You can do this. But don't wait until the last minute! For more fundraising tips, resources and ideas, download our Fundraising Guide.
