Take action by getting active!
• Participate in a ride, race or run and make this your cause, raising awareness and funds for SMF.
• A few options:
• 1. Check your city's local listings for your sport of choice: most major cities have regular 5K and 10K races. Register for a spot and make SMF your cause.
• 2. Alternatively, plan your own race or ride in your community. Depending on scale of event, steps can include: planning a route and a date, securing proper permits, recruiting participants, pursuing sponsors and event supporters, renting any necessary equipment, signing the SMF liability release, and creating marketing materials to get the word out to the community.
• 3. Go Big or Go Home: Plan a large-scale ride with a professional touring or excursion company (see http://www.projectfutures.com for examples of their organized rides in Southeast Asia). These companies can take care of details like lodging and route planning. Set a fundraising goal for each participant (that includes the cost of the trip) and plan well in advance to allow time to fundraise (see Host an Awareness Fundraiser).
