Platinum Passport Program

The Platinum Passport Program is a nationwide rewards program for all Ride to End ALZ participants. Riders who raise $5,000 or more in the Ride to End ALZ South Carolina (single event fundraising, not cumulative fundraising totals) are invited to participate in any other Ride to End ALZ events for the next year without having to meet the event's fundraising requirement. Participants who raise more than $5,000 for the 2023 Ride will receive more information in August, 2023!

FUNDRAISING TIPS AND TOOLS

Once you register, you will have access to a personal fundraising webpage and fundraising tools in your Participant Center (also known as the Ride Hub). Your fundraising webpage makes it easy for donors to make a donation toward your efforts and track your fundraising progress over the next few months. The Ride to End ALZ app is an easy way to fundraise and track your progress from a mobile device.

Log in at the top of the home page to:

Set or edit your fundraising goal
Group Ride participants should set their goal for at least $750 in order to reach the fundraising minimum and earn the 2023 exclusive jersey. We recommend Virtual Ride participants set their goal for at least $252. We encourage you to set your goal higher so that you can earn all of the exclusive cycling gear and make a lasting impact on the cause to #ENDALZ!

Build your personal webpage
When you customize your webpage, be sure to highlight why you're supporting the Alzhiemer's Association and this important cause. Use pictures to add a visual component to your fundraising page. If you are riding in honor or memory of a loved one, consider posting a picture of you with that person.

Create a Facebook Fundraiser.
Statistics show that social media is an excellent tool to raise awareness and engage support for your participation in Ride to End ALZ South Carolina. Look for the Facebook Fundraiser link in your Ride Hub!

Be the first to contribute
Once you are registered to ride, your easiest pledge will come from yourself. It is always easier to ask others if you have already demonstrated your commitment to your goal with a personal donation.

Email your contacts using our fundraising templates
We've made it easy for you to spread the word about your fundraising efforts! Just load your email contacts and customize our email templates, and your potential donors will receive an email with a link to donate on your webpage.

Access mobile deposit
Checks you receive for your fundraising efforts can be deposited using the Ride to End ALZ mobile app. Use your smartphone to access the app, enter some info, take a pic, and you have a mobile deposit! All donations deposited using the Ride app mobile check deposit will instantly be added to your fundraising page.
