Cupid’s isn’t about running or winning…or even undies. It’s about putting the “fun” into fundraising for the Children’s Tumour Foundation and taking on the Cupid's Undie Run with an army of friends and family at your back!

Motivating your team to fundraise

Remember these four words: Motivation, Inspiration, Encouragement, and Support
  • Set a team goal and aim high! This will motivate your team members to set their individual goals higher to help reach that overall goal.
  • Don’t forget to ASK. Asking everyone on your team to fundraise will guarantee a successful Cupid’s Undie Run Team!
  • Encourage your team members to ASK. Tell them to ask everyone they know for a donation. You can’t get what you don’t ask for!
  • Keep Team members motivated and excited by sending weekly emails. You can send fundraising tips, success stories, shout-outs to the highest fundraiser for the week or even a story about your local NF Hero
  • Post team shoutouts on social media and include a special mention to those who are working extra hard to raise money.
  • Distribute sample social media posts and fundraising emails for your members to copy and share. Remind them to share their individual and team goals in their emails. Donors love to see that they are helping a friend reach their goal.
  • Make sure your team has materials available (e.g. posters, Cupid’s merch) so they can talk about Cupid’s Undie Run. Email fundraising@ctf.org.au if you can't find what you need.
  • Check-in on your team members.  Are they reaching their personal fundraising goals?  If they have met and surpassed goals, encourage them to increase their fundraising goals.  Ask them if they need support.
  • Work with another Team Captain and challenge his/her team to see who can raise the most.  Friendly competition is a good way to reach and exceed fundraising goals!
  • Remind them to thank their donors.  Donors love to know they are making a difference in the fight against neurofibromatosis.
  • Praise your team members. It is important to let your team members know that they play an important role in not only the success of your team, but to the success of Cupid’s Undie Run as a whole in helping to find a cure for NF.
