605 Running Club member Ryan Wanless has a vision for a new addition to the club. Imagine us being able to reach out to everyone that wanted to participate in the amazing races in the 605. Ryan sees our running club as an outlet for something like this!
Four months ago Ryan laid the foundation for the 605 Running Club to add a race wheelchair for teams to push locally right here in Sioux Falls. Ryan has worked with Adaptive Star to procure a custom chair that is adjustable for multiple users. The total cost for this chair is $3000. The goal is for us to have the chair available for teams to sign-up and push at races this summer.
To complete the production of our chair Ryan needs your help to secure the funding to make this chair a reality. The 605 Running Company is leading the way with a $500 dollar contribution to kick-off the fundraising goal. We are also working with The Cookie Jar Eatery next week to raise funds (checkout the details below). If you or somebody you know is interested in contributing direct dollars please have them contact me using the following email firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at the store #271-0480.
FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITY APRIL 20TH-25TH!
Have you ever tried The Cookie Jar Eatery? Odds are if you have been at one of our group runs you have experienced the joy of their cookies, bars, or other delicious treats. Did you know they also serve breakfast and lunch? I’m telling you all of this because The Cookie Jar Eatery wants to help us raise money for our wheelchair!
Here is how the fundraiser works. Simply use the voucher posted below when you make a purchase at The Cookie Jar Eatery next week and 10% of whatever you buy goes towards our project.
Ways to Maximize Cookie Jar Eatery Fundraising Program
· Get the office together to order lunch (The Cookie Jar delivers), use the voucher and bam! You have multiplied the amount of money donated.
· Do you have a kid graduating this year? Plan on ordering a cake for the graduation party? Purchase it next week from the Cookie Jar Eatery and use the voucher, 10% of that goes toward our chair (they cater too).
· Custom Cakes! Weddings, birthdays, family reunions, anniversaries, etc. order your custom cakes next week and 10% goes to the chair!
· If we get everyone in the 605 Running Club to participate we could theoretically get the chair paid for by eating delicious food (what runner doesn’t love food!?!?)
