In 2011, we began a new addition to the SOFT conference agenda. The Stroll for Hope. We wanted add something new to the confernce and hopefully raise some much needed funds along the way. We came up with a walk/fundraiser.
The first thing you need to do is set up a web page for your family. Click on the link that says "Get Started". It is really easy and the program will walk you through the steps. When you are done, download a picture or icon that is special to you. Finally, send your page to your family and friends and watch your thermometer fill up. It is that easy! Anyone can make a page. Even if you are not able to attend the conference this year, you can still participate "virtually" in our fundraising efforts. During the Stroll, we will have a pledge board displayed with all the team names participating. We may even have a prize or two for Best Names, Outfits, Pledges...just to name a few!
All proceeds from Stroll For Hope will be equally distributed between SOFT National to cover operational costs and the Chicago Conference Committee to offset the cost of the conference. First Giving also takes a small percentage to keep our fundraising page running.
