Would you like to be part of something muck-tacular?

A group of us here at [YOUR ORGANIZATION/COMPANY] have formed a team for this year’s MuckFest™ MS.

What is MuckFest MS, you ask?
MuckFest MS is an outrageously fun obstacle run with mud… a whole lot of mud. The funds raised through MuckFest MS benefit the National MS Society.

Our team is called [TEAM NAME], and we’re inviting all our coworkers to join. We’re trying to get [TEAM RECRUITMENT GOAL] people to join our team.

Visit MuckFestMS.com > Register and search for [TEAM NAME] to join the team.

On the day of the MuckFest MS, we’ll join together to run, slosh, climb, slip, slide and swing through a truly incredible course. We’ll celebrate afterward in the MuckFestival area. Lunch and beer for the adults are included in your registration.

Take a look: www.MuckFestMS.com

We’re going to have a great time as a MuckFest MS team. I hope you can join us. If you can, invite someone else who might be interested – relatives, friends, anyone… the more the merrier.

Very muckily yours,

Sample Fundraising Email – To Encourage Team Fundraising

Dear Fellow Muckers,

As a team, we’ve raised [$AMOUNT] so far. This is awesome. But I would like to raise [INSERT AMOUNT] before MuckFest MS.

One great way to fundraise is by walking around with a megaphone and shouting at people… just kidding. Sending fundraising emails is the quickest and best way to fundraise fast. Ask for donations and invite more muckers to join our team. Follow up with the people who don't respond, and send a thank you message to those who have made donations on your behalf.

Remember, our fundraising efforts don’t just make us look mucktacular. Our efforts benefit the National MS Society, which provides vital programs and services for people living with MS in our area and funds cutting-edge MS research. There are also some great team rewards we can earn between now and the MuckFest MS.

Thank you, in advance, for all your fundraising efforts on behalf of the National MS Society.

Sincerely,

[YOUR NAME]
