Every year, we ask runners to join our Miles for Smiles team. In doing so, they fund raise on behalf of the Nursery, leading up to the race of their choice. For every $50 raised, "Fund-Racers" are entered into a gift card drawing. One of our biggest supporters for this event is the Marching Illini Sousaphones who run an entire 5k with their instruments!
Third Party Fundraisers
A third party fundraiser is an outside group or individual that wishes to hold a promotion, event, or sale to benefit Crisis Nursery.
If you have an idea or plan for an event that will benefit Crisis Nursery, please reach out! We ask that all events are approved by Crisis Nursery in advance. This is an important safeguard to preserving the integrity of the Crisis Nursery name and our commitment to raise the necessary funds to fulfill our mission in a cost-effective and efficient manner.
