How Does the Mission Walk Raise Money for Charity?
The Father Sav Memorial Mission Walk is a “Walk-a-thon.” Walk-a-thons are events that usually consist of noncompetitive walks of 1 to 5 miles which raise money for charity. There are four major ways the Father Sav Mission Walk raises money to support our charities.
People who participate in walk-a-thons collect pledges from friends, family and coworkers beforehand. The walkers ask them to 1) donate a certain dollar amount per mile the walker walks or 2) to give any amount they would like. The walkers write down the names and dollar amounts on pledge forms and collect checks or cash to turn in on walk day or shortly thereafter. Walkers can also provide the address where people can donate directly. Donations to the Father Sav Memorial Mission Walk can be turned in on the day of the mission walk or made directly to St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, 621 First Colonial Road, Virginia Beach, VA. 23321. Getting pledges is a fun way to generate interest in the event and to provide information to those in the community.
The Mission Walk also accepts direct donations from people who aren't participating in the walk or who are not sponsoring participants. This includes members of the participating churches, people who happen by the event and decide to give a few dollars on the spur of the moment or interested people who want to support our charities. Donations can be accepted from people who give directly to the mission walk without affiliating with a walker. Donations can be mailed to or turned in to St. Nicholas GOC.
REMEMBER, EVERY DOLLAR YOU DONATE GOES TO THE CHARITIES WE SUPPORT!
Sponsors can help the Mission Walk by donating towards the expenses of the walk or sponsoring a portion of the walk. Businesses or individuals can be sponsors. Donations do not have to be strictly financial, but can be services, materials, signage, printing services, postage or other expenses. These types of special donations are always appreciated and will be specially recognized. If you are interested in supporting the Mission Walk in this way, contact St. Nicholas GOC or Annunciation Cathedral.
