Fundraising Fun

Join Hot Pursuit and have fun for a good cause. All of the money raised will help us in our mission to bring hope, reduce fears, and impact lives.

STEP 1: BUILD A TEAM

  • Gather 2-6 competitors
  • Designate a team captain
  • Each member must submit a signed entry form and will receive a race shirt*

Event shirts are not guaranteed for those who register after April 3.

STEP 2: MAKE A COMMITMENT

  • Each team must pledge to raise a minimum of $250
  • Corporate teams who commit to raise $500 or more will receive sponsorship benefits

STEP 3: RAISE FUNDS

  • All funds raised will be applied to your team commitment
  • We’ve set up a Hot Pursuit FirstGiving web page where you can create a personalized fundraising page that allows your friends and family to make donations. Visit FirstGiving.com/HospiceHawaii to get started.
  • Each team will be assigned a Hospice Hawaii Navigator to point out important information
  • Everyone can be a winner. Special incentive prizes will be given to individuals who raise a certain amount:
    • Raise $500 and receive a $50 Tesoro/HIE gas card
    • Raise $1,000 and receive a Beats by Dr. Dre Pill 2.0 Portable Speaker
    • Raise $2,500 and receive a GoPro HERO4 Black

    One prize per person, all money must be received by April 18, 2015. Winners must be present at the event on April 25, 2015 to collect their prize.

  • It’s easy to raise $100—ask five friends, three cousins, an aunt and an uncle to each give $10, and you’re at $100! Other fundraising ideas include bake sales, where you and your teammates bring items into work and sell them for $1; “skill auctions,” where you and your teammates auction off skills or services to coworkers and friends instead of items; or best appetizer contests, where you and your teammates bring in appetizers and your coworkers pay $2 to sample them and vote for their favorite one. Each and every dollar raised counts!

STEP 4: HAVE FUN!

Whether you’re a participant or are coming to support one, Hot Pursuit has activities for all ages. The best part? Your efforts help us to ensure that the people who need hospice care will receive it.

Share the Love

For businesses wanting to show their support for Hospice Hawaii in a highly visible way, we offer the Share the Love program. We will provide you with packets of paper hearts bearing the Hospice Hawaii logo that can be hung from windows, walls, or the ceiling. The hearts are a wonderful way to decorate your business and show community involvement. All funds raised from the hearts will be applied to your sponsorship commitment. Hospice Hawaii would be happy to work with you to develop other fundraising ideas as well. For more information, contact Jean at (808) 791-8045, or hotpursuit@hospicehawaii.org.

WHY WE LOVE HOT PURSUIT… HH.TeamPOM

Many of my late husband’s friends were runners. We ALL miss David very much and find that Hot Pursuit is a way of having fun, thanking Hospice Hawaii for all their support which meant so much to us, and doing something just a bit different!

May people are able to participate, whether they are walkers or runners. Instead of slogging along on a regular race we all enjoy the added dimension of figuring out clues and doing team tasks. Another bonus is the chance to win FABULOUS prizes.

Fundraising is not difficult as the website makes it soooo easy. Friends and family willingly contribute to Hospice Hawaii because they have heard about the many valuable services they provide. You do not feel that they are secretly saying, “Oh no, not another person asking for money!” I would encourage everyone to participate. It is a wonderful way to pay tribute and reflect on your loved ones in an environment that is geared for any athletic ability. It is so well organized and challenging as well!!

Much aloha,

Marlene Lomas and TEAM POM
