Be a HERO to the homeless animals of southwestern Michigan today! Our virtual 5k challenge is designed for YOU to be the fundraiser. Challenge yourself to run, bike, or hike 5k. Challenge your friends, family, and acquaintances to donate a dollar per mile. All proceeds will benefit the animals here at the shelter.
To Get Started:
1. Click the Join the Team button
2. Log in or create an account
If you select Create Your Own Team, follow the prompts to set a team title, photos and story.
After you join or create a fundraising team, you may then customize your campaign under Campaign Manager > Edit.
Tell your story on why you are helping raise funds for the shelter. Upload pics or videos of your furry friends. You can also set your fundraising goal.
Note: You need to be logged in to create or join a team. If you do not already have an account, you must create one in order to complete your campaign set-up.
Spread the Word:
Share your campaign page on your social media accounts to recruit your family/friends and challenge them to donate a dollar per mile.
The idea is to get outdoors while the weather is great, and share your favorite outdoor acitivity. Remember to social distance and be safe!
The top fundraiser will receive a prize!
Remember: Every $1.00 you raise will go to the care of the homeless animals here at HSSM. The cost to care for the animals is around $7.50 per day/per animal. This provides food, shelter, vet care and medicine until they find a furever home.
During the pandemic, we have had to cancel or postpone in-person events. Instead of letting that slow us down, we have decided to create this virtual event that allows social distancing, and is an interactive way to help raise much needed funds to continue our Rescue and Re-homing program.
