Diabetes: A Family Matter

Toolkit Activities

Fundraising Activities

Some items listed below may not have attached PDF files or even descriptions. These are not only suggestions, but invitations to our Social Network to get creative and to share your own ideas!

Only a few activities are listed here as fund-raising activities. However, many of the activities listed for the community activities can be extended so that they can provide some other ideas to consider.

Community Theatre (PDF)
The purpose of this activity is to serve as an awareness and fund-raising event for your Diabetes: A Family Matter program or for your local diabetes coalition. By inviting local actors and using community theatre, the three short SUGAR Plays can be enacted locally. Each play provides a different perspective about living with diabetes in the Appalachian and provides an entertaining way to get some important health messages across to others.
Dance Contest (PDF)
Everyone loves to dance! The world loves to dance! This fund-raising activity can be interpreted in ways most interesting to people that live in your community. Dance can involve individuals, pairs, or groups. The contest can include break dancers, hip-hop, traditional ballroom, salsa, square, contra dancing, or anything else of local interest. Some suggestions for a competition are provided, but it can be organized in ways your sponsors and program planners view as most fitting. This is an activity that volunteer SUGAR Helpers can organize and sponsor.
Fund Raising Events (PDF)
Your Diabetes: A Family Matter program may be financially supported by a local hospital or other health organization, but you may also be a volunteer group. Either way, you may have needs to raise some money for support or special activities that you would like to do in your community. A few ideas are suggested here. The internet can also assist you to find some other ways to raise money. Some of the events suggested here may not make huge amounts of money for your program, but may be good ways to provide community education in novel ways.
