1. How do I set up my Steps For Sunrise account?
Register at www.sunrise-walks.org/sightmd and follow the steps on the screen to create your Steps For Sunrise account. During the registration process, you will set your fundraising and step goals. After you complete your registration, you can customize your Steps For Sunrise fundraising page. We recommend adding a profile picture, header image, and creating a custom URL. Our registration process walks you through how to do all of this step-by-step!
2. How do I log in to my Steps For Sunrise account once I register?
To log in to your Steps For Sunrise account, visit www.sunrise-walks.org/sightmd and click LOGIN in the top right corner. Enter the email and password you used to register. Once you are logged in, you will be directed to your Steps For Sunrise account. This is where you will be able to customize your Steps For Sunrise fundraising page, track your fundraising progress and steps, and send pre-programmed emails and social posts.
3. Now that I am registered, how do I track my steps?
Simply log on to your Steps For Sunrise account and click the Steps For Sunrise tab. Click the ENTER ACTIVITY button. Select the Activity Type, date you completed the steps, add the number of steps, and add duration (optional). If you want to post your activity and progress on your Steps For Sunrise fundraising page (recommended), select the Post to fundraiser feed button. Once completed, click ADD ACTIVITY.
4. How often do I have to add my steps?
You can add your steps every day, multiple times a day or only a couple times throughout the campaign. It’s up to you how often you add your steps! We do suggest that you update somewhat regularly, as posting your step progress is a great way to show your involvement and dedication to the Sunrise mission and inspire people to give.
5. Do I have to choose just one activity?
No, you can choose any number of activities that can be tracked in steps. Please note that if you choose an activity that cannot be tracked in steps (i.e. cycling), the activity will not populate on your Steps For Sunrise page.
6. Where should I complete my steps?
The beauty of the Steps For Sunrise Challenge is that you can take your steps wherever and whenever you’d like! Your neighborhood, at a local park, on your treadmill – wherever you are most comfortable. We do recommend that you stay safe by observing all local, state and federal social distancing orders.
7. How does fundraising work?
You will use your step progress as a vehicle to raise funds for the Sunrise Association by asking your friends, family, clients, and colleagues to support you with a monetary donation.
Once you register for the Steps For Sunrise Challenge, we recommend sharing your participation via email, social media, and text message. Let your networks know you are taking steps for Sunrise to raise awareness and funds for children with cancer and their siblings. By sharing your involvement and our mission, people will be inspired to give.
You can also ask your family, friends, clients and colleagues to pledge to donate a certain amount of money for every step you take. For example, ask a family member to donate $1 for every 10,000 steps you take.
8. What fundraising tools do you offer?
You can access our fundraising tools at www.sunrise-walks.org/sightmd/static/fundraisingtools. The Sunrise Association staff is available to assist you in all your fundraising efforts and can create custom tools for you.
9. I want to share my Steps For Sunrise page on social media. How do I do this?
Sharing your Steps For Sunrise page on social media is an easy and effective way to spread awareness to a large network of people, which can result in raising more funds. To share your page, log into your Steps For Sunrise account, click the SHARE tab and choose which social media platform(s) you want to post on. Note: through your Steps For Sunrise account, you may only share your page on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. If you would like to share your page on other social media platforms (i.e. Instagram), we do offer graphics that you can manually post.
10. How do I create a Facebook Fundraiser?
Facebook Fundraisers are one of the most effective ways to raise awareness and funds for Sunrise. All Facebook donations will directly connect to your Steps For Sunrise account and will be reflected on your fundraising page.
To set up a Facebook Fundraiser, log into your Steps For Sunrise account, click the GO SOCIAL tab, then click Create a Facebook Fundraiser. Enter your login credentials, wait for the page to re-load, then click Go To Fundraiser.
Now that you have successfully created your Facebook Fundraiser, you can invite your Facebook friends to donate and share.
