When you fundraise for St. Joe’s, you are helping support three important priorities: building a new Emergency Department, funding mental health care, and purchasing new equipment and technology. Every dollar you raise also means benefits for you! Similar to previous years, St. Joe’s is implementing an incentive program where our cycling fundraisers will be awarded Cycle 4 St. Joe’s jerseys after reaching specific fundraising thresholds.
CYCLE 4 ST. JOE’S SILENT AUCTION
Our Ride Sponsors Spidertech is generously offering two unique prizes to bid on.
Jersey 1: Authentic Israel-Premier Tech Jersey signed by Hugo Houle, Tour de France Stage Winner
Jersey 2: Authentic Jersey signed by the Israel-Premier Tech Team who cycled the 2022 Vuelta Ciclista a Espana.

Thanks for being a team captain, and good luck at mobilizing your team to win!
Who do you know?
Tell your team to gather their contact lists, both personal and work. Everyone needs to think through people they know through their kids, clubs, volunteering, dog-walking friends, neighbours, etc.
Use your social network
When you register to Cycle 4 St. Joe’s, you automatically are given a personal fundraising page. You can customize your fundraising page with a personal message and photo by following some easy instructions found in the Social Media Toolkit. Now that your Cycle 4 St. Joe’s fundraising page is presenting the authentic you, you are ready to help raise awareness and funds to help St. Joe’s keep the promise. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn are all amazing ways to spread the word about your ride. Ask your team to do the same. To help get you started, check out our sample social media posts and suggested hashtags in the Social Media Toolkit. Thank you for helping spread the word!
Make A Big Ask!
Encourage your team to ask. If they ask someone for $100, they 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 are all supporting St. Joe’s. Be sure each team member includes a personal message about what St. Joe’s means to them. The more personal you can make it, the better.
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. Remind your team that if they know someone who has indicated that they want to donate, but hasn’t, that there is no harm in following-up with a phone call or reminder email. And remember, when the event nears and time is running out to fundraise, share your timeline 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 your team. Send emails, post thank you messages on social media, and thank people in person.
