Last month the American Diabetes Association announced that Converse, Inc. will be a National Promotional Sponsor of Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes®. That means that Converse, Inc. will provide the Association with 1,000 pairs of limited edition Converse ‘Stop Diabetes’ sneakers for the first 1,000 walkers who raise $1,000 online.
Honestly – how cool is that?! I’ve been wearing their sneakers for years because I love their classic look, but I’ve never had a limited edition pair!
Another thing that’s cool is how easy it is to get started and fundraise online! Here’s what you have to do:
- Get Started: Register for your local Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes – you can register as an individual walker or start a team (a Friends and Family Team or a Corporate Team). If you have diabetes, don’t forget that you can be recognized as a Red Strider, too!
- Make it Personal: You can personalize your online fundraising webpage with photos or videos, messages, your fundraising goal and more.
- Ask for a Little Help: Upload your email address book and send emails to your contacts, asking them to help you become a Champion. You can also add a badge to your email signature.
- Be Social: Download the Facebook App (which you can find on your Step Out Center page) and fundraise on Facebook, or use Twitter to share links to your personal fundraising page!
There are so many ways to fundraise online, yet only a limited number of these limited edition sneakers from Converse, Inc. so don’t waste any time – get started now!
