By the time this year wraps up, the Y of Central Maryland will have provided financial assistance to over 600 children. In 2014 we hope to serve thousands of disadvantaged children in our region, thanks to your help. We are challenging all of our Turkey Trot runners and walkers to raise $100 each. If every Turkey Trot Charity 5K participant raises at least $100, the impact on our community will be incredible. More children in Central Maryland will have safe, caring and educational places to spend their days, with access to preschool, camp and before and after school care.
The easiest way to raise $100 in a jiffy? Ask ten friends for $10 or five friends for $20. Call them and say something as simple as “Hi, I am running in the Y’s Turkey Trot Charity 5K to support disadvantaged children. Would you be willing to donate $20 to help me reach my goal and kids in need?”. It works! People care. People care about you. People care about children in need. You just have to ASK.
We cannot wait to see your fundraising page come alive! Keep checking back for more fundraising ideas.
