Every year, thousands take to icy cold waters to raise money for charity. Why not make a splash with The Great Brain Freeze?
This winter, challenge friends, family and members of your local community to join you in taking an icy plunge to spread awareness of acoustic neuroma brain tumors and raise funds for ANA’s valuable patient-focused programming.
Raising money for a cause that’s near and dear to your heart (and brain) has never been more invigorating.
The Great Brain Freeze is a no-brainer!
- Select a date, time and location.
- Set your fundraising goal.
- Tell your story in an email or social media post inviting your friends, family and community to join you.
- Alert the local media.
- Stream video from your event using Facebook Live or Instagram.
If you aren’t brrrave enough for an arctic swim - host a pool party, ice cream social, popsicle party or slushy soiree, organize a group snowball fight, or any frigid, fun activity. Be creative and make it fun!
We’ll help you promote your event and recognize you for your support and your accomplishments on behalf of AN patients worldwide. If you need suggestions to make this a fun-filled event or ways to keep participants warm, we can help with that too!
Please make sure that you and your healthcare provider are comfortable with your participation in this type of event. If not, please feel free to contact ANA to explore alternate events.
