Virtual Walkathon
for [YOUR CHARITY]

Walk in place as we shelter in place.

Turn steps into dollars for charity

Like many other organizations, we rely heavily on public events to raise money for NKH research. In light of our current global state, we decided to host a virtual "walk-a-thon" to raise funds for NKH research and awareness. Each Zoom the Room Team will host a Zoom meeting on their respective date. We will walk, ride, laugh, and enjoy the company of each other, from afar. We urge you to get involved in the first ever Zoom the Room and help us as we continue our fight to save the lives of hundreds of children around the world.

Your Why

Use the space above this button to tell your registrants WHY you need their help to raise money for your cause. While Zoom Walkathon was created as a way to fundraise virtually due to COVID-19, the reason you need virtual fundraising could be different. Virtual fundraising can be used anytime, anywhere, and with anyone around the world! The button is typcially used as a link to the registration form.

Optional T-Shirt

Lots of people love to get merchandise for events. This is also a physical representation of a memory for them. We highly recommend to offer shirts if you can find a sponsor, someone who will donate their time, and only charge you the cost of the shirts (unless they offer to do it all for free, even better). If you decide to go with the team model, each team could have their own shirt to represent their team. T-shirts are not required to have a successful event, but if you do chose to offer a shirt, we are happy to help with the design.
