Donations can be made online. You may send a link to possible donors and ask that they specify you as the runner/walker they are donating towards. This may be helpful to allow people to make contributions using their credit cards through a secure website. You may also set up a personalized walker page through the online registration website to collect donations from friends, family, co-workers, etc. Don't be afraid to ask everyone you know to help you reach your fundraising goal for Variety Children's Charity.

We know there are many worthy causes asking for your generosity...but consider, for a moment, how difficult your life would be if you couldn't get where you needed or wanted to go.

Take action, "Make A Move," for Variety Children's Charity and Royals Charities.
