When I started charity running in 2012, I became aware of using virtual runs as a means of fundraising. The key to a great virtual is having a great theme and an even better medal. After months of brainstorming I came up with the Green Power Ranger inspired medal and the Go Green for St. Jude Virtual Run. The idea was simple, put on your favorite piece of green gear and hit the streets to dedicate your miles to the patients at the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
After having registration open for a little over a month I am excited to report the following results.
- 47 Runners Registered
- You brought in $1,410.00 in registration fees
- Your medals cost $506.60
- Registration fees were $47.00
- Shipping medals to runners will be $188.00
- BlingRunners cut was $235.00
- St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital will receive $433.40!
Thanks to the help of the Random.org Number Generator the winner of the green Sparkle Athletic is bib number 13, Eric Compton!
Thank you to everyone who registered!
