Shoes, shoes, shoes!

Tuesday, July 9, 2019

It's hard to ask friends and family, but the truth is, if you care about raising funds for the cause, they will too! They either share your values or just want to help! Go ahead, ask them to support you. 

Training Tip:
Consider getting a custom fitting for a pair of running shoes. Specialty running stores will help you find the shoe that is best for your foot and your body. Proper shoes protect your joints from injury.

Take rest days

Friday, June 21, 2019

When asking for a donation to support your campaign, ask for a specific amount--try these:
"Would you consider a gift of $20 to support my Gears for Good fundraising efforts to support those living with bleeding disorders?"
"Honestly, I have NO idea how much to ask you for, but is a gift of $20 something you'd be able to consider?"

Training Tip:
If something hurts for two straight days while running, take two days off. Two straight days of pain may signal the beginning of an injury. If something hurts for two weeks, even if you've taken your rest days, see a doctor!

Double the donation!

Sunday, June 9, 2019

Need to kick off your fundraising campaign? Donate $20 to your personal campaign to be the example you want your donors to see. Want to double this donation? Check with your employer to see if they offer matching gifts!

Training Tip: 
Start every run with 10 minutes of walking and slow running, and do the same to cool down.

Go for distance

Tuesday, May 28, 2019

One of the easiest ways to share your journey and hit your fundraising goal is to share your training on social media! Post a photo of you on your run and add your fundraising page and why you are running for Team Resilience. 

Training Tip: 
Go for distance rather than time - slow it down, be patient, and don't worry about your pace.
