Team Central

Our 5K team captains and dedicated participants and supporters are what make the 5K Celebration of Life so special. Utilize these resources to keep your family and friends engaged and boost your team fundraising! Be sure to check back as we continue to add more useful materials.

Have questions or need assistance using the tools below? Contact us at 5K@sharingnetworkfoundation.org.

Get Started

Once you’ve signed up, visit your participant center to start recruiting team members and working towards your fundraising goal. Log in and click on “Participant Center” in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. Take these few simple steps to kick off your fundraising efforts:

 

Set your fundraising goal. We recommend a $250 individual fundraising goal and a $1,000 team goal but encourage you to reach for the stars! If you reach your goal earlier than expected, you can always increase it in your Participant Center. The more you raise, the more you can spend in our NJ Sharing Network online store! 


Personalize your team & personal fundraising pages. Share why you’re participating in the 5K by adding your story and a photo or video to your page! Update your page URL to make it friendly to share. When family and friends know why you feel so strongly about our life-saving mission, they'll be more motivated to support you. If you haven't already, send us your team story so we can add it to our 5K Team Story Page and display it on event day. 

 

Ask for support. Your Participant Center includes prewritten fundraising and thank-you messages you can personalize and send to your family, friends and colleagues via email. Reach out early and often using these tools!

 

Make a personal contribution. If you haven't already done so, kick off your fundraising efforts by making your own personal contribution.
