Join Team KISS in our mission to stop sarcoidosis and
help change the face of sarcoidosis research and treatment for patients everywhere.
Team KISS members across the globe are kicking in to raise awareness and host fundraising events that help FSR fund game-changing sarcoidosis research. Taking action can be as simple as setting up a fundraising page or memorial fund for a loved one, or as exciting as organizing a big event and inviting everyone you know! No matter how you decide to kick in, you can join other Team KISS members who are making a direct impact on the future of sarcoidosis research
Need Help With Ideas?
Get the whole community involved! Ask family and friends to volunteer to help run the event. Get neighbors to pitch in – grill out or organize a meal potluck-style! Add your own fun activities- have a raffle, make your own carnival games, offer face painting or have a pet costume contest! Ask a local band to perform to really make it a party!
Who doesn’t love pancakes? Find a venue that’s available on a weekend- it could be a local church or community space, a firehouse, or even your own backyard! Recruit some family and friends to help you advertise and to be your cooks and servers the day of the event. Have a fun topping bar with everything from syrup and fresh fruit to whipped cream and sprinkles! You can charge a flat fee for all-you-can eat pancakes, or charge by the stack- don’t forget to have a donation bin for anyone who wants to make an additional contribution!
Hit the greens and get swinging for sarcoidosis! Ask a golf course for discounted rates and charge tournament entry by team. Make sure to have a grand prize for the winning team! For a bigger event, have a dinner party after the tournament and ask local businesses or artists to donate items for auction.
Represent Team KISS:
Don’t have the time to organize your own event? Already signed up for an athletic competition or planned a cool adventure? You can represent team KISS and fundraise while you do it! Run a local race, or ask family and friends to sponsor you on your way to achieving a milestone accomplishment, like completing a difficult bike ride or challenging hike.
A memorial page on Team KISS’s Tribute Wall can help create a legacy for a loved one lost to sarcoidosis. Family and friends can post personal messages and photos to celebrate the life of your warrior, as well as donate in their honor to ensure a legacy that will help countless other patients and families affected by this disease. This page also reminds us why we continue in the fight to advance research, find better treatments and stop sarcoidosis.
