"Together, we will bring about the change we wish to see in our world!"
"Love Shocktober! Such a great cause and love the haunt!"
We invite Shock Fans and volunteers from around the world to rally their friends, family, co-workers, classmates, fellow haunt lovers, and neighbors to support The Arc of Loudoun's mission: to advocate for, educate, serve, and support people with disabilities and their families. By becoming a "Why We Shock" fundraiser for The Arc of Loudoun, you help people with disabilities and their families, plus you help your friends and family feel good about doing good.
For the first time in its 10-year history, Shocktober, The Arc of Loudoun’s largest fundraising event of the year, is accessible to Haunt Fans around the world. Due to COVID-19, The Arc of Loudoun had to cancel all in-person Shocktober activities and move to all virtual experiences including live-streaming celebrity events (AKA Scarethroughs), online Shocktober Haunt Classes, and the “Why We Shock” fundraising campaign.
The Arc of Loudoun’s vision is to provide a lifetime of opportunities for people with disabilities, and we rely on the income that Shocktober generates each year to bring that vision to life—so the thought of having to cancel was truly scary. With these virtual options, you, our community, as well as Shock Fans around the world, will still experience the thrill of Shocktober while directly supporting our life-transforming work.
Starting a "Why We Shock" fundraiser is easy to do, and it's fun. We'll even give you all the tools you need to raise much-needed revenue and provide a lifetime of opportunities for people with disabilities and their families.
Join us and Shock for the Arc today! On behalf of the more than 6,000 people with disabilities, their families, caregivers, educators, advocates; Arc Volunteers; and members of the law enforcement, first responder and judicial system communities we serve annually, thank you for joining "Why We Shock" 2020!
