EVENT DATE: Jun 20, 2015
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Jun 30, 2015
The official Virtual Race Against Summer Hunger has ended, however donations can be made through this page until June 30. Thanks to all who participated!!
Why a Virtual Race? Because it’s really too hot to run in June in Texas – but it’s not too hot to take action against summer hunger!
Why Against Summer Hunger? Because summer is the hungriest season of the year! Kids are out of school and donations to the Food Bank are at their lowest point of the year.
How it works? Don’t worry about getting out in the heat or even leaving your couch. You can join the race just by raising funds to help get food to those who need it right from your phone or computer. Click "REGISTER" to have your fundraising page/team created! Remember that only donations collected on June 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. count towards the race! $1 = 6 meals this summer thanks to a matching grant by the Crowley Foundation!
How can I “win” the race? Raise the most money on June 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and you’ll win bragging rights with all your friends and the great feeling of knowing you're helping to get food to people who need it! And if we collectively get to the finish line of raising $10,000 in the race against summer hunger, we’ll give out fun prizes to the top individual fundraiser and the top team of fundraisers!
How do I raise money? Once you create your own fundraising page, make sure to send an email or two (see sample email) with the link to your fundraising page to all of your friends and family telling them about the race. And post the link to your fundraising page on social media (see sample posts) using #ntfbRace!
Register at any point, but remember that only donations collected on June 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. count towards the race!
