Fundraising for Marathons
Due to the fantastic weather, summer is the most popular time of the year for people to participate in marathons and other running related events. Many individuals choose to combine their interest in running with the opportunity to raise money for a great cause. By joining a marathon, for example, a runner can ask people to donate to a cause such as cancer or AIDS research.
No technical skill required
One of the difficult things with traditional fundraisers, however, was that runners would spend an extremely large amount of time trying to get people to donate. The Internet now provides runners with a way to raise money online, but most people do not want to spend a lot of time focusing on any of the technical details that can accompany an online fundraising campaign. Getting bogged down in technical details or needing to have a firm understanding of how to fundraise will hinder a runner’s ability to perform well in the marathon.
