There’s nothing better than spending a spring or fall morning participating in a 5K or a charity walk. Runners/walkers will need to pay an entry fee, but you can also encourage participants to get sponsorships.
Races and walks are all the rage right now, so jump on the bandwagon. This is a great fundraiser that brings your current supporters together with potential donors from your community. Plus, specialty runs add a creative element to an otherwise simple idea.
The Color Run
You may think that every charity is organizing a running road race such as a 5k or marathon, and you’re at least a little bit right. And these events are extremely popular. That doesn’t mean you should avoid them though, because they have the potential to bring in some serious income for your charity.
We’ve seen hundreds of organizations plan 5ks and marathons using our platform. One of our favorite options is taking the concept of a 5K or marathon and mixing it up so that more people can participate. That’s what I’m a HIPpy did with their Leap into Action fundraiser. They invited participants to move their bodies in any way: walk, run, bike, roll, or anything else!
Start Organizing The Walkathon Details
- Find a location and work with the town to organize event details.
- File for a permit to block off the roads
- Obtain city and police approval for the event
- Include registration forms and waivers on your event page
- Measure and map your walk route
With a walkathon, you have a large event area that isn’t prohibited with space constraints, which means you can build a substantial amount of support and fundraising success with a small amount of effort.
