A mini event is any event that is held during the year where a portion of the proceeds benefit the Bennet Cancer Center's Hope in Motion Walk. A mini event is a great way to build team camaraderie while raising funds for the Walk. Anything fun that brings people together can be used as a fundraising opportunity.
Events can have a single organizer, involve just one person or a large group of people or fall anywhere in between. Mini events can be shared with a small circle of friends or opened to the greater Hope in Motion Walk community.
A mini event can be anything—let your creativity guide you! Or, look at our list, pick one (or more) that interests you and start raising funds now. Put the "fun" back in "fundraising," all while helping the Bennett Cancer Center patients.
