Find your supporters
Why do I need a supporter/sponsors?
It is because you are asked to gather founds for humanitarian project. We want to bring the running community together in creating positive impact.
Can I sponsor my own run?
Yes, absolutely and we suggest to send 500 SEK/50€ to the NGO. If it is too much just ask some friends to sponsor acc to below suggestions.
How should I find my supporters?
The best way is to use your social media audience by posting something like that: Hej! On 2-3 October I will attempt to break my personal distance record during charity run called Aid Station Project. My goal is... and I would like to ask you to send ...SEK for each km that I run. 100% of the money will be used to help homeless children in Nepal. Let me know if you would like to be part of this great project!
How many supporters should I have?
As many as you wish so you can contribute with bigger sum to the NGO.
We encourage you to have a minimum goal of 500 SEK/50€.*
Below is a suggested sum that you can ask your sponsors:
6h - 3 SEK/km (0,3 € or 0,3 $ per km) e.g. 5 sponsors x 40km = 600SEK
12h - 2 SEK/km 0,2 € or 0,2 $ per km) e.g. 4 sponsors x 80km = 640SEK
24h - 1 SEK/km (0,1 € or 0,1 $ /km) e.g. 5 sponsors x 100km = 500SEK
* This is so that we can forecast for the NGOs and allow them to plan their projects accordingly. Remember, the NGOs will do most of the work, (we just run) so let us make it easier for them.
