Host your own fundraiser.
There are lots of creative
and fun ways to raise money.
Have a friendly steps challenge
among co-workers, host a yard sale
to clean up the garage, or whatever
you choose to do, have fun with it!



Once you reach your $100 goal, try to raise $150. Always remember to have fun, and know that all of your efforts are helping to support those individuals living with obesity.
