Team Captain Achievement Bracelet

BRIGHT Run 2018 is thrilled to unveil this year’s Team Captain Achievement
Bracelet, created especially for our team captains by Monica Graves of glamjulz.

The 2018 bracelet is in keeping with the current jewelry trend that favours
natural stones, believed to be touchstones of hope and good energy

The bracelet includes Rose Quartz, which promotes love, self-love, friendship
and feelings of peace, along with Clear Quartz, which amplifies energy and
thought, the master healer.

As your team achieves specific fundraising levels, the following beads will be
added to your bracelet.

Thank you to Monica for bringing glamjulz to BRIGHT yet again, helping us
show our team captains how much we appreciate their hard work.

Go, Team, Go!
Have we got some goodies for BRIGHT Run teams that go above and beyond!

Challenge your team members to push your on line fundraising total to $3,000 or beyond and your team has a chance to win one of four terrific prizes.

***When your team’s online fundraising total hits $3,000, one ballot will be entered in a draw. Every $1,000 above $3,000 puts another team ballot in the draw.

And if your team’s ballot is drawn, choose from one of the following:

A wine tour and tasting for 10 people
OR
A beer tour and tasting for 10 people
OR
A Grand River dinner and drinks boat tour for six people
OR
A Hamilton Harbour Queen dinner and drinks boat tour for six people

Six ballots will be drawn (your team can only win once). Remember, your team’s eligibility is based on its ONLINE fundraising total, so make sure you enter your cash and cheque donations on your team page by Sept 6th.***


Fundraising Tips

  • Share your story: when telling people about the event make sure to share why you believe
    in the cause.
  • Stay motivated: don’t take it personally if someone doesn’t want to donate as people
    support many causes and may not be able to support all of them. If someone says no to
    donating money, you could ask him or her to spread the word about the event or invite
    them to “like” the facebook page.
  • Stay in touch: send updates to your donors on how much you’ve raised and how much the
    event raised in total. Don’t forget to say thank you! A picture of you at the event is
    always a nice touch!
