Set A Fundraising Goal Once you have registered, we encourage you to set a fundraising goal. For example, if a walker asks just 10 people to contribute $10 each, then s/he will reach a $100 goal. Small donations from many people add up quickly and are great support for ABMDR. Remember all the funds are used for the process of finding matches for our patients.
