Supporters are hungry for physical P2P experiences, but can you responsibly produce events under pandemic conditions?
The answer is a qualified yes — live is possible under very special circumstances. Learn how from a group of industry pros who successfully staged physical programs this year:
Chai Lifeline’s Yoel Margolese will share how his organization engaged 480 riders to raise over $7.6 million dollars during a ride that looked very different from the traditional Bike for Chai.
Event 360’s Jillian Schranz and NAMI’s former Kris Eschman will discuss the Covid-compliant measures that were put in place to hold a safe and innovative peer-to-peer fundraising experience in Denver in October called the 5X5K FOR GOOD.
National Psoriasis Foundation’s Kris Bockmier will describe her group’s many experiments with hybrid (part virtual, part physical) events including partnering to create in-person and streamable zoo walks!
Plus don’t miss the opportunity to hear our panel of experts share their 2021 plans and answer your questions.

For more than two decades, Yoel has been actively involved in the nonprofit world. Starting off as a small-time event planner and fundraiser, Yoel has grown through the ranks. In 2010, Yoel helped start and build Bike4Chai, a charity bike ride whose main goal is to support Chai Lifeline in its important work of helping families dealing with serious pediatric illnesses. Under Yoel’s leadership, Bike4Chai has grown each year and has raised over 60 million dollars for the organization.
Yoel is passionate about helping people and organizations. He has helped numerous start-up nonprofits and is always happy to share his knowledge and experience. In his spare time, he loves to ride his bicycle, is an avid reader about leadership and history, and enjoys spending time with his wife and children.
