Dear Friend,

It’s just one month from today – September 14th: The 10th Annual SEA Blue Chicago Prostate Cancer Walk & Run! Visit the website. 

New Partner Perks!
We’re excited to announce that we're partnering with Youtside Fitness Club to get in some outdoor fitness training before the race! In addition to leading our pre-race warm-up, Youtside has agreed to give all SEA Blue participants/supporters 2 FREE weeks of outdoor fitness classes. Register online at youtsidefitness.com by clicking on Try a Free Class/Register and typing SEA Blue in the company field of the registration form. The first class must be taken before August 31st. Or call Youtside at 312-533-4991 to get details on discounts for SEA Blue participants.

SEA Blue awesome kidsThank you to everyone who’s already registered for the SEA Blue event and is actively seeking donations to support their participation. You’re awesome! 

And if you haven’t already, now’s the time to REGISTER to participate as a walker or runner. Enter the code SEA81414 for a $5.00 discount. Or make a DONATION to support an individual participant or to a team. 

Plenty of Prizes!
Even though you’re not in it for an incentive, it’s still nice to receive a prize for doing something good to help others.  So bring on the koozies, baseball caps, travel coolers, umbrellas, weekend getaways and iPads we’ve got lots of special ways to say 'Thank You' and recognize the amazing work that you do! Check out the fundraising levels and prizes awarded for each level.

In addition to the team flags awarded to those teams that raise at least $1500 by August 29th, we are offering a party at the Hofbrauhaus in Rosemont to each of the three teams that raise the most funds for the SEA Blue event. 

Be sure to tap into the fundraising tools you’ll find on your event home page on the SEA blue website. Reach out to your friends, family and co-workers with a series of emails to request donations to support your participation in the SEA Blue event. 

Fundraising FACT:
Remember that not every email sent is going to generate a donation. On average you’ll need to send five emails to get one response. 

Fundraising TIP:
Set yourself a fundraising goal over the next week and send enough emails to reach it. For example, if your goal for the next week is $100, and your average donation amount is $50, plan to send 10 emails based on the ratio of emails sent to dollars anticipated.

Fundraising FACT:
It’s perfectly acceptable to send the same person more than one email request for a donation to help those battling prostate cancer. Being persistent, polite and professional for a good cause is typically not seen as being "pesty." 

Fundraising TIP:
Send a follow-up email if a prospective donor hasn’t responded to your first email after a week or 10 days. They could have the best intentions to donate but it may have slipped off their radar until they receive the reminder email from you!

Good luck out there. Please send us an EMAIL or call us at 800-808-7866 to let us know if we can help you with advice and information to make your fundraising efforts more effective. Thanks in advance for all that you are doing to make this year’s 10th anniversary of the SEA Blue Chicago Prostate Cancer Walk & Run bigger and better than ever!
