Third Party Events

FUNDRAISERS FOR InStride: We appreciate receiving numerous inquiries each year from individuals and organizations that want to stage their own fundraising events to support InStride; these “third party” events are run independently by the individual or group. While we are able to provide guidance for your event, we do not have the personnel to handle all of the administrative tasks.

The path to launching a third-party event typically begins with an idea and plan of action which is presented to InStride. Upon careful review, the appropriate staff member will assist the potential organizers in examining a variety of factors to determine if, in fact, the proposed event is viable.

Examples of successfully produced and staged events include golf tournaments, run/walk events, raffles, auctions, wine tastings, company dress-down days, bowl-a-thons, motorcycle rides, and various other events. Volunteer creativity is the only limitation! We encourage the development of these ideas, and if the event is accepted, assistance may be provided in certain areas of preparation, coordination and provision of a nominal level of guidance and resources when appropriate.

Well planned third-party events help to increase awareness of InStride. Please review our guidelines for creating and staging a "third-party" event as you will also need to fill out an event application. For more information or an application, please contact Mike at 941-412-9333 or by email.

FAMILY CENTER Rental: Our covered-open air Family Center can accommodate 100 people and comes with a serving island/gas grill.  Why not hold your next event, meeting, party or gathering at InStride's Family Center? Evenings and weekends and some noon times are available. To inquire, please contact Mike at 941-412-9333 or by email
