Charity-o-Rama for January 4, 2007

Posted by Filed Under: Charity & Fundraising

From time to time here at Complete Running headquarters we get asked to promote one thing or another. We (read: I) usually say no, because promoting things can be tricky business—although if you want to advertise with us, we’re all ears!.

But just recently someone wanted to promote his fundraising efforts. We didn’t want to say no to such a worthwhile cause, but we also didn’t want to give one person an unfair advantage. After hours of brainstorming, your Complete Running Network staff came up with the idea for a weekly (or bi-weekly, we’ll see how it goes) Charity Roundup!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Are you running to raise money for a known charity?
  2. Do you know someone who is?

If you answered yes to questions 1 or 2, submit the details using the form you see below and you will be mentioned in our weekly (or bi-weekly) Charity Roundup!

When I have enough entries, I will put together a post mentioning everyone who wrote in, complete with links to appropriate fundraising pages or blog entries.

Sound good?

We thought so too.

Thanks Dennis, for helping us come up with this idea!

    A Charity Roundup is definitely a great way to recognize all the runners who are raising money for worthy causes. At, we help fundraisers create personal online fundraising pages so they can meet their fundraising goals for their upcoming race. Our website is open to anyone who wants to raise money for a registered charity and we send the donations directly to the designated charity. We believe in what fundraisers are doing and our goal is to provide them with tools that are easy to use so they can efficiently attain and surpass their fundraising goals.

    Good luck to all the runners!!!!
