My friend is considering running for a charity to fundraise and earn a race entry into the Disneyland 10k! During our volunteer shift at the Tinker Bell Half Marathon, we planned to run the Disneyland 10k together. Unfortunately she wasn’t able to register before it filled up! Have any of you ever earned a race entry by meeting a certain monetary goal? Many of the charities that still have slots open require about $600 of fundraising in a few months.
I told my friend I would help blog about it to spread the word, but I don’t know if it will generate enough money. One idea I had was to offer those who donated a certain amount additional entries into my blogiversary giveaway in June (since she needs to raise money before August). For the giveaway, I was thinking of a sparklysoul headband and sparkly skirt type deal (suggestions and connections welcome!). But again I don’t know if that would be enough of an incentive. Also, if you would be interested and able to donate, would you mind writing in the comments how much that might be, so I can get an idea of funding possibilities? I wish I had known the 10k would fill up so fast, I would have registered her after I completed mine 😦 Thanks!!
Any additional tips/suggestions for those who have successfully done something like this?
