If there is not a NET Cancer Awareness Walk in your area:
NCAN’s Virtual ‘Strides for Stripes’ Walk – Giving you the freedom to walk wherever and whenever is convienient for you!
With a Virtual Walk You Decide Where and When– Since a virtual walk is one you can do anywhere…anytime, it is good for those whose schedule is very busy, who aren’t close to the Long Island or another scheduled event or can’t physically participate. Below is a guide that’s full of ideas to help you plan your own Virtual Walk (or another fundraising event) and help support the fight against Neuroendocrine Cancer.
We ask that you set aside some time to put on your t-shirt with family and friends to walk wherever works for you.
Registration is $35 per walker, within the US only. NCAN will ship your shirt out to you.
Virtual Walk Guide: Fun Ideas for Your Virtual Walk
VIRTUAL WALKERS- If you want to walk on your own, that’s fine! If you’re a person who likes to get people together, why not create your own community fundraising event by planning a walk or other event in your community. You can plan a walk or another type of event like a wine tasting or a bowl-a-thon. By registering as a team on the virtual walk website, your team page would be about your event specifically. Those individuals that choose to join your “team” can fundraise on the website. You can watch the progress of your event and send emails to your contact list encouraging their participation and support.
You may choose to walk around your community, in a local park, indoors at a mall or even on a treadmill at a gym! Your Virtual Walk is a reflection of you, and is as personal as your reasons for joining the fight against this deadly disease.
Not sure where to start? Here are a few ideas.
- Walk in a mall
- Take a walking tour of your town
- Make your grocery shopping or another shopping trip YOUR walk to fight neuroendocrine cancer
- Belong to a gym? Walk a treadmill, and enlist other members to walk with you
- Even if you can’t walk, get people involved with a board game, bus trip, beanbag toss- you can be as creative as you want!
