The 19th Annual GBCF "Walk" is Virtual!

We don’t know how Strong we are until being Strong is the Only Choice.

This year has presented challenges... and opportunities. Over the months of September and October, we invite walkers, runners, and bikers to come together to raise money for those whose lives have been impacted by breast or ovarian cancer in St. Lawrence, Lewis, Jefferson, and Franklin counties, New York. 

For the past 18 years, crowds have assembled on the Saturday after Mother's Day to walk one mile and raise money for the fund. This year, we invite you to participate in whatever way you want; walk, bike or run. Set your goal, get your sponsors, and join us in a virtual fundraiser. Here's how this will work...

1. Register and Create your Fundraising Page

Click the "Register for the Virtual Walk" button found on our home page. This will take you here, to our Fundraising website. After you register, you will create your personal fundraising page. Add some personality to your page, like a photo or a story. You want to encourage people to contribute to your fundraiser. Your page is where you entice them to do that. You can set a goal for the amount you want to raise or just collect contributions.

Teams? YES!  After you register, If you want to set up a team, you'll see a button that will allow you to do that. Your team members must also be registered in order to add them to your team. Set an individual or team goal and your sponsors will help you raise money.

2. Get Sponsors and Run or Bike or Walk!

During the months of September and October, we invite you and your team to participate in an activity for which sponsors give you money. You might choose to run, walk, or bike. Your activity can be done solo, or with family and friends as a team. Alert your donors and they can link to your page and support your fundraiser with a credit card. Or you can collect cash or checks (made out to "Gouverneur Breast Cancer Fund") to be turned in to the committee on Nov. 1, 2020.

Use the 2020 Pledge Worksheet to keep track of your sponsors, but be sure to record the cash & check donations on your online donor wall, to have them count toward the final tally. Set a goal or just collect as many contributions as you can... then "Get 'er Done!" The campaign will last until October 31, 2020.

If you've registered before October 15, you can pick up your t-shirt at the Donation Drop-Off on November 1, 2020. If you are unable to pick up your shirt, contact one of the GBCF Committee to make arrangements.

3. Turn in Your Fundraising Donations

Once you have completed your fundraising activity, you can either mail the proceeds to the Gouverneur Breast Cancer Committee at PO Box 64, Gouverneur, NY 13642. Or you can turn your cash & check donations to the Committee in person on Sunday, November 1, 2020 at the Gouverneur Community Center, from NOON -3:00PM.
