Potato Pants

Join SPF in FUNdraising for HSP and PLS Medical Research.

Complete on your own event, recruit family and friends to participate, or plan an event for others in your area. 

Please set up your personal fundraising page: CLICK HERE  to see more details and start raising funds. Grab a photo to upload, create a personal message to ask for donations, and set a goal. Not sure how much you can raise? Start with a goal of $500. You might be surprised. You can always increase your goal. Be creative and have fun! There were some participants from last year that used mobility devices to participate. At least one swam her way to raising funds for medical research.

If you would like to host an event, please email: You will be emailed a How to Plan a Potato Pants guide. It will provide a step-by-step process to get ready for your event. Please do not get overwhelmed. If this is your first time planning an event like this, start small. Invite family and friends this year. Invite others next year.

Help others and SP-Foundation raise awareness and funds for Medical Research by Starting a Fundraiser today! Below is an event toolkit guide.

Thank You Most Sincerely,
Spastic Paraplegia Foundation
