What type of events can I host?

Wondering what types of events you can host to make a difference in the lives of those affected by Parkinson’s? Look no further.

Your Event, Your Impact

With Team DPF, the possibilities are endless. You have the flexibility to turn almost any event or activity into a fundraiser that aligns with your personal strengths and interests. Whether it’s a community walk, a charity run, a themed dinner, or a creative DIY project, your unique contribution helps fund vital programming to help people with Parkinson’s live well today.

We’re Here to Support You

You’re not alone when you embark on your fundraising journey with Team DPF. We’re here to guide you every step of the way. Our dedicated team is happy to offer assistance, resources, and tips to ensure your fundraiser is a success. From planning to execution, we’ve got your back.

Turning Ideas into Fundraisers:

Wondering what kind of events you can host? Here are some inspiring examples:

Community walks: Organize a walkathon in your neighborhood, park, or local trail to raise awareness and funds.

Charity runs: Turn your passion for running into a fundraising opportunity by hosting a charity run or marathon.

Fitness challenges: Organize a fitness challenge, showcasing your passion for health and well-being. Whether it’s a yoga marathon or a cycling event, sweat for a cause.

Community gatherings: Organize potlucks, picnics, game nights, or themed parties that bring people together for a good cause. Your social gatherings can turn into impactful fundraising events.

Sports or games tournaments: Organize a tournament—from soccer to chess—and invite friends, family, and colleagues to compete for a cause.

Birthday fun: Celebrate your birthday with a fundraising twist to make your special day even more meaningful. Instead of gifts, ask friends and family to donate to your fundraising page for the Davis Phinney Foundation (plus, a Team DPF incentive would be a nice birthday gift, right?).

Facebook fundraiser: This is a quick and easy way to raise money in support of the Davis Phinney Foundation. We’ve had several community members raise money for us on Facebook, achieving hundreds and even thousands of dollars’ worth of donations with relatively little effort.
