While it's fun to run, pledges are the important so that The Last Chance Fund
can provides monies for the care of abused, neglected, or injured unowned
companion animals. Funds are only generated through donations, so that's why
it's so important to get pledges before race day. Tell your friends, your
family, your co-workers - spread the word!
If you're registered for the race, simply log in and click the fundraising tab
at the top and explore your options. To get pledges in person, click "Download
Forms" and you can email a printable pledge sheet to yourself. You can take it
with you to work, school, church, and the donations you collect can be brought
with you on race day.
You can also get pledges online by clicking "Get Sponsors". You can use your own
email or the website's email system to solicit pledges. You can even click on
the Get Social button at the bottom of the page and login to Facebook. Once
you're logged, just click on "Share Your Page" and each of your Facebook friends
will know that you're part of Bark in the Park and are looking for support.
