Hog Raffle – Selling Tickets at IGA March 4th.

We will be selling raffle tickets next Saturday, March 4th at Eureka IGA from 8am to 4pm.  We will have a table set up just inside the door.  Sign up here to work a shift (or several).  Slots are first-come-first served.  Sign up for as many slots as you want.  All money raised that day will be credited to your individual fundraising total for those who work, divided evenly by shifts worked.

Family Plan Pilot

Running for St. Jude is awesome, so it is natural for multiple members of the same household to want to participate together.  That’s a great thing, but we recognize it has the potential to represent a fundraising hardship, in that people of the same household likely have largely the same population of potential donors.  We want multiple members of the same immediate household to be able to participate together without facing an unreasonably high fundraising requirement collectively. 

This year, we are going to try a “family plan” approach.  While the first member of a household would still need to raise $1,000, additional family members in the same household can participate in the run with a $500 minimum fundraising requirement.  So, two people in the same household would have a combined minimum of $1,500.  For three people it would be $2,000.  Four would be $2,500, and so on. 

I am very interested in your feedback on this (positive or constructive).  We’ll try it this year and then reevaluate for next year.

Stationary and Limited Merchandise Available

If anyone would like stationary for fundraising letters, we have letterhead paper and envelopes on hand (no cost to you).  Just let me know what you need!

Also, we will have new merchandise/apparel available in the coming months.  In the meantime, we have a modest supply of yard signs, tumblers, license plate brackets, koozies, decals, and a head band in stock.  Shoot me a note if you’d like to purchase anything!

Revised Route for 2023

I would like to share a small revision to our route for 2023.  So that there is less of a time crunch when we get into Peoria, we have revised the Eureka portion of our route, shortening it by two miles and allowing us to arrive at the Civic Center a half hour earlier.  The Run Information Page (accessed above) has been updated to reflect the new route description (including music genres for 2023) and the new route map.

As a reminder, the run is on August 5th.  Save the date!!!   We anticipate registration opening early next month.
