    • When Gloria devised our capital campaign for “the cure”: The Wunder Project, she also created http://wunderglofoundation.org/wunders-warriors/
    • A Wunder’s Warrior is either a colorectal cancer patient in treatment, a colon cancer patient in remission, or the caregiver of a CRC cancer patient (or related cancer). Since no one wants the cure for cancer more than those who have either been afflicted by cancer or are currently in the battle, Wunder’s Warriors fundraise for the purpose of helping to achieve the goals set forth in The Wunder Project. http://wunderglofoundation.org/about-the-wunder-project/
    • Our Wunder’s Warriors become a part of the WunderGlo family in a very special way. They are “the face” of the cause that we are working toward.
    • Wunder’s Warriors are an amazing group of people who “Love-Life”-as WunderGlo embraces them with the inclusionary style that Gloria gave to everyone she touched.
    • Any type of fundraising style or event becomes your unique tradition. However, please know that there is no set prescription or pressure to raise $1.00 or more. This is whatever you’d like to create and do for The WunderGlo Foundation. It is a spirited, empowering, and an energetic way to take hold of this disease and tell cancer that it will not take any part of your life’s joy, while you couple with WunderGlo to one day eliminate this disease.
    • Examples of Fundraisers are: 
      • 1. Facebook Birthday Fundraiser. 
      • 2. Asking your own group of friends to sponsor your fundraising page for our annual 5K event. 
      • 3. Asking your employer or friends to sponsor one of our events, which would display their unique logo and have an Ad in our Annual Cancer Warrior Awards Event Program that highlights their support for YOU.  
      • 4. A restaurant portion-of-the-proceeds event. 
      • 5. A paint night portion-of-the-proceeds event. 
      • 6. Basically any type of benefit that raises funds in support of our WunderGlo Mission. 
    • If you are inclined to create and host a larger Benefit event, some of our Wunder’s Warriors have created some extremely impressive benefits that have raised $15,000+ in one night for WunderGlo: ex.: “A Night of Wunder” in Savannah, Georgia (dinner, dancing, convention center/Gala-style, ticket charge for admission ; “Bowel-lywood Party for 50th Birthday” Event in Chandler, Arizona (silent auction, donations, dinner, music, fully decorated outdoors home); “The Time is Now For a Cure in the San Francisco Historical Clocktower” Event, SF, CA (catered food, wine, WunderGlo films, speeches, ticket charge for admission.)
    • If you are not in a position to hold any type of fundraising benefit, that is okay, too. Being a Wunder’s Warrior also means that you stand together with WunderGlo in support of our mission to fund vital and cutting edge research towards the cure of colorectal cancer.
    • You can “share” our WunderGlo Foundation social media fundraising posts on your personal social media pages to help promote to your network of family & friends that WunderGlo is an organization that is close to your heart. You can also encourage your network to donate to WunderGlo on “Giving Tuesday” of each year. Giving Tuesday aka: #GivingTuesday refers to the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. It is a movement to create an international day of charitable giving at the beginning of the Christmas and holiday season
