Successful Events

Below are a few examples of successful events and some tools to help get you started.

Laps for LAM

Laps for LAM is the brainchild of Peggy Haupt, an enthusiastic supporter who has singlehandedly raised $100,000 for The LAM Foundation. Laps for LAM encourages attendees to walk up to 15 miles around a high school track in support of The LAM Foundation. Since 2020, Laps for LAM has gone virtual via our custom fundraising platform and has included participants from around the world.

Heather Joy Golf Outing

Every year since 2016, LAM community members Chrissy and Loren Buntrock host a successful golf outing with their family that has raised over $33,500 for The LAM Foundation in memory of Heather Buntrock.

Bear Chase Brewery Event

Larisa Nunley’s first community fundraiser brought in over $11,000, an amount matched dollar-for-dollar by our LAMplify program, funded by The LAM Foundation’s generous donors, making a total gift of over $22,000. The highlight of Larisa’s month-long campaign was the “Sunday Fund A Cure for LAM” celebration at the Bear Chase Brewery.

Pontz Art Auction

Eden and Leslie Pontz hosted an art auction that raised over $12,000 between the art auction and an employee match!

We are deeply grateful for the selflessness and dedication of these and other community fundraisers. You are our heroes!
