The Steps

Through the program we are here to help you apply and plan with tools & resources. 

Official Charity Requests
Official charity applications for Boston, NYC and Hartford require a letter of intent, 501c3 verification of non-profit status. Know the mission of the organization you want to support and have all of that prepared and ready.

Marketing Plan Development
Each organization needs a point of contact and admin support to reach their audience for outreach and involvement.  The official social media and email campaign will be direct from the organization. This includes targeting sponsors, recruiting volunteers and runners. 

Communication Strategy
Communication to the runners, volunteers and potential sponsors is key for success.  Partnering with you to ensure you have a plan ready to go for success.

Funds are needed to support this effort.  From singlets for your team mates, T-shirts for volunteers and promotional materials and additional volunteers will all need to be accounted for in prep for this program to be a success first time out and in the future.  


Experience is key

Your success will be based on your supporters and how they would like to support your organization.  If you are a corporation it is important that you chose a charity that the employee base cares about making an impact to support.  My experience as a charity manager and a charity runner, alongside my history of running marathons, ultra distance and mountain runs and Ironman triathlons will be a bonus to answering questions and support with additional coaching. 

I encourage you to reach out and schedule a time to talk with me about your charity, or your corporation and how I might help you make an impact through charity running!
