Inspiring Success Stories
Minnesota PHun Walk for a Cure, 2007
In their first year, planners of the Minnesota PHun Walk for a Cure used Firstgiving to register 75 walkers, who created more than 20 fundraising pages, raising more than $13,000 through online donations alone!
4th Annual New York Fun Walk
for PH, 2008
“We've got 17 days left before our 4th Annual Walk kicks off and we've already got over 200 registered walkers with more coming in every day… I want to share the story of one family, who lost their two year old to PH and just recently had their five year old diagnosed. [The family] has over 60 people coming to the walk and a lot of them are coming from New Jersey! Collectively, they have raised over $8,000 using a Firstgiving website: http://www.firstgiving.com/stephanievolino. This definitely attests to the power of donating through the web.”
- Joanne Schmidt, organizer of the New York Fun Walk for PH
