As part of our Going the Distance Sustainability Campaign, we have created the 100 Runner Challenge. We are looking for 100 runners to raise $1,000 each on behalf of the campaign by collecting pledges and donations using the CharityBets platform. If you are interested in participating please follow the instructions below. If you have questions about the program please contact any member of our staff for details about the 100 Runner Challenge.
How it works
- Set a Goal – Can be time based, finish place, or just to finish
- Contact your donors – Using email, social media, friends and family
- Train hard to complete your goal – Run the Akron Marathon, Half Marathon, or Team Relay!
Runners do not ask for donations….they earn it!
Friends, In September I will be competing in the Akron Marathon with the goal of finishing under 4 hours and 50 minutes. As I prepare for this event I will also be fundraising for the Akron Marathon Charitable Corporation which is creating an endowment fund to sustain the future of the marathon. I would deeply appreciate your support of my cause and no amount is too small. I am using a service called CharityBets which allows you to donate a flat amount…or make it a little more fun by making a charity pledge bet that I can meet my goal. The link below will take you to my CharityBet page.
