Getting the media involved

Most of the fundraising events people hold for us come about because of personal experiences with or connections to someone who has been affected by a brain tumour. It’s these stories which when featured in local news truly inspire people to donate and motive others to get involved and help fund the fight.

No matter where you’re based, the local media are always interested in a good news story where an individual or group has raised money for vital research.

So here are some templates for use in getting your message out there to the media. Simply edit and delete where indicated on these templates, then save and send to your local newspaper, TV or radio station. A quick search on Google should help you find the relevant contacts for media in your area.
