St. Vincent Meals on Wheels Bike-A-Thon Fundrasing just a click away


Dear St. Vincent Meals on Wheels Friends Old & New!

It’s Springtime…and once again, the St. Vincent Meals on Wheels Walk/Bike-A-Thon is here.  On Sunday, April 15, the 17th Annual family-friendly event will kick off along the Santa Monica Bike Path. On-site registration begins at 8 a.m., with the walk/ride getting underway at 9 a.m.  Raffle prizes, a brand-new silent auction, and a tasty lunch courtesy of Pink’s Hot Dogs await walkers and riders back on the lawn at Bernard Way. immediately following.

This year, raising $$$ to support St. Meals on Wheels programs to provide meals to L.A.’s hungry and homebound is easier than ever, with BAT participants creating a First Giving page to solicit and track their fundraising.  Last year, using First Giving enabled us to significantly increase our overall totals and user feedback touted the convenient, streamlined page, which can be posted on your Facebook page and Twitter account.

Here’s how: 

·     Starting on the FirstGiving homepage, you search your organization:  St. Vincent Meals on Wheels. 

·     This will take you to a page with a list of organizations and groups. Our event/organization is located in Los Angeles, CA, and is the very first one.

·     After clicking the icon, it should take you to the St. Vincent Meals on Wheels event page, named 17th Annual Beach Walk/Bike-a-Thon.

·     Here you will see a Join Now icon to your right. It will also show you the goal and how far along we have come in our goal. When you click on the icon, a minor page will pop up on your screen.  Select the quantity of people your fundraising team will consist of and remember the cost of each member is $20.00. 

·     Once completed, you may fill out the Personal Information section. Get ready to enjoy your time fundraising!
