Become a Cycle Ambassador

Every fundraising event needs leaders who will champion the cause and inspire others. Cycle 4 St. Joe’s is looking for leaders in our community who believe that our west end neighbours should have the best health care possible. You don’t need to be a serious cyclist, just serious about doing good. Click the button below to learn more.

The top fundraising team that raises over $50,000 will have their team photo displayed on a huge banner facing The Queensway, Lakeshore and the QEW for one month.

Last year’s top fundraising team was ORTHO RIDERS! Most of the team work in St. Joe’s Fracture Clinic. They used the $22,500 they raised to buy new surgical equipment for minimally invasive procedures.

Hey staff riders! Raise $5,000+ and you can allocate the amount you fundraise to your department for new equipment or programs.


Fund Raising Tips

You know a lot of people

Gather all your contact lists. Go through your personal email list and work email list. Think of everyone you know through your kids, your clubs, volunteering, dog-walking friends, neighbours.

Use your social network

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn are all amazing ways to spread the word about your ride. Post about your goals and progress to update your followers and rally them behind your ride. Download the official Cycle 4 St. Joe's Social Media Kit below to get started.

Make A Big Ask!

If you ask someone for $100, you might get $100, or maybe $75 or $50. Whatever the case it never hurts to set the bar high.

Remember Your Inspiration!

There’s a reason you’re supporting St. Joe’s. Include a personal message about what St. Joe’s means to you. The more personal you can make it, the better.

Use Online Fundraising Tools!

Your fundraising page is loaded up with sample email messages to make asking quick and easy. Simply login to your participant centre, select the email tab, pick an email message or create your own, import your contacts, send, and wait for those donations to start rolling in!

Follow Up!

It’s very common for people to put things off. We all lead busy lives and have lots of other responsibilities on our plates. A little reminder never hurt anyone. If someone has indicated that they want to donate, but hasn’t, follow-up with a phone call or reminder email. Especially as the time you have to fundraise for the event runs down people respond to deadlines!

Send Thank You Notes!

It’s a simple thing to do, but also one of the most powerful. Say thank you to everyone who supports you. Send emails, post thank you messages on social media, and thank people in person. There is a thank you email sample in your participant centre to help you get started.

Your Fundraising Toolkit!

Whether you’re raising money online or prefer to fundraise in person and on paper, we’ve got the tools to help you rev-up your fundraising.

Here you’ll find ready-to-use visuals for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. Social media is an excellent way to get sponsors. Remember to include #cycle4stjoes so we can share your posts and further boost your audience!
