Announcing the Match Promotion of the Year - Get Ready!
Every dollar you raise will get matched, dollar for dollar!
The end of fundraising for Virtual VeloSano 2020 is on the horizon and we ask you to make a big push to help raise critical funds for cancer research. Your efforts will go a long way to the October 1 deadline especially with this incredible match support! From Sept. 1 thru Sept. 3, and thanks to some very generous, anonymous supporters, we will match every dollar raised* until we reach our $70,000 threshold! So if someone donates $5 dollars to you, it’s matched. If someone donates $500, it's matched. Any donation, large or small, will make a difference.
In 2020, roughly 1.8 million people will be diagnosed with cancer in the United States. This promotion doubles the impact you can make in the fight against cancer.
* Match eligibility details:
- Online donations credited to your Personal Fundraising Page of any amount made between Tuesday, September 1 at 12:00am EDT and Thursday, September 3 at 11:59pm EDT will be matched 1-to-1 up to the first $70k raised.

Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery... Use Eric's Fundraising Playbook!
VeloSano 4-Year Rider, Eric Logan, has the secret sauce of fundraising success. A text message, a link to his Personal Fundraising Page and an easy-to-implement outreach strategy.
Eric refers to his strategy as the "Bernie Sanders of VeloSano donations" - reaching out to a large donor base where a lot of multiple donations of amounts both large and small really add up! In his case, 90 donations raising $9,000...most received within a few days....as Eric says, "It takes a village to address this societal ill."
His network included people from his family, lifelong friends from high school/college, KPMG colleagues, and community members.
Eric sent three non-intrusive text messages to a group of 250 people in his network and incorporated a direct link to his VeloSano Personal Page to donate online.
He utilized a “burning platform” by doing it all within a week for the first two messages. Compassionate people with good intention may forget and never donate if you don't remind them.
Key to his strategy: cast a wide net and remind people regularly.
Prepare for September 1-3!
Do the math. Together we can raise a minimum of $140,000 in just a few days which equates to funding one entire cancer research project! Any donation, large or small, will make a difference.
Together, We Are VeloSano!
