BENEFITING: CHAMPIONS IN ACTION
Dozens of runners. Dozens of races around the country. Hundreds of lives changed. We’re Champions, and we’re going The Extra Mile for teens in Guatemala.
Champions in Action connects Guatemalan youth with life-changing mentors by using soccer as a connection point. This fall, we’re raising $10,000 to launch a premier national soccer league and take our mission nationwide.
Our supporters are running half or full marathons to raise the $10,000 goal, and they need YOU to sponsor their races. Sponsoring is easy, and you can donate right here on Crowdrise.
Talk to your runner and pick one of three options...
1) The fun option: Make a “per mile” pledge (50 cents, 1 dollar, or more!) for each mile that your runner trains leading up to the race. You can also pledge a “bonus” amount if your runner beats a personal record (or some other goal) on race day.
2) Pledge to donate a specified amount after his or her race.
3) Simply make a donation in anticipation of the race.
Our goal is to have $10,000 raised through Crowdrise by December 31. Each runner will raise $200 (or more!), and these funds will be MATCHED in Guatemala, which means every dollar donated goes twice as far. Contact Matt Portillo (email@example.com) if you or someone you know would be interested in running or helping to fundraise. Together, we can go The Extra Mile so that teens can experience the lasting physical and social benefits of mentorship and soccer.
Champions in Action is a 501(c)(3) organization in the United States and a registered non-governmental organization in Guatemala.
