Fundraising Tips & Tricks

At Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, we not only care for patients, but also help them return to full lives. To meet this goal, we offer a number of programs designed to enhance the quality of life for people who have lost ability due to serious injury or chronic conditions. These programs are unique, but many are not generally covered by insurance. 

This year, your fundraising minimum is required to climb and will only be based off of your fundraising, not your team’s average per climber. As a reminder, the minimum fundraising for a virtual climber is $100 and $200 for an in-person climber.  

Every dollar you raise will help us provide better outcomes for our patients. Some quick tips:

  1. Embrace the challenge and raise at least $1 for every floor of the Willis Tower, $105 total.

  2. Ask 21 friends on social media and ask them to donate $5. 

  3. Reach out to those closest to you and ask for a $105 donation in support of Shirley Ryan AbilityLab.
