October Challenge

Get out on your local trail or neighborhood street

A challenge for greater impact. October is Pregnancy Loss & Infant Death Awareness Month and Jane's Room is looking for 20 challengers to create a RUN WALK RIDE challenge during the 31 days of October! If you would like to bring awareness to families experiencing the unthinkable and support the mission of Jane's Room ... Here is your chance! Put your imagination to work and create your own personal October Challenge in support of Jane's Room.

Examples: Allison wants to be part of the October Challenge. She is a Peloton fanatic and challenges herself to ride 200 miles during the month of October and sets a fundraising goal of $1,500. Gary is an avid walker, he challenges himself to walk one mile each day of October for a total of 31 miles and sets his fundraising goal at $1,000. Jimbo isn't very active, however he wants to challenge himself to walk 10 miles in the month of October and sets his fundraising goal at $800. Emily enjoys riding her bike and running, she challenges herself to 40 miles of biking, 20 miles of running, and selects a fundraising goal of $5,500. In the end, each challenger creates their own RUN WALK RIDE challenge and sets a fundraising goal... What are you going to do?

1. CREATE YOUR CHALLENGE: It only takes a few minutes to set up your challenge. Select a challenge name. Select a photo. Select a fundraising goal. Write up a description of your challenge. And just like that, you are ready to make a difference for grieving families through Jane's Room with your own personal fundraising page!

2. SPREAD THE WORD & MEET YOUR GOAL: Once your campaign goes live, tell everyone in your network about it! Invite people by email, socail media, and call in a few favors. The more people you get involved in your campaign, the quicker you'll reach your goal. And don't forget to ask your employer if they will match the amount you raise.

3. SEE THE DIFFERENCE YOU HAVE MADE: Your fundraiser will make a tremendous difference for families in need of space for comfort in the midst of loss. We'll keep track of every dollar and send an impact report showing how your advocacy has helped Jane's Room achieve its mission.
