Free Video Tool for your Non-profit

How to use Animoto to create free, professional looking videos for your non-profit organization. I recently read a great article about how making a video about your non-profit is a great way to promote your cause and ask for donations.  A well made video can say a lot about your organization.  If a picture is […]

Run For Two Johns

Huntsman Hometown Heroes Training run for February 11, 2012 Recap of the training run. This past Saturday was fantastic for running.  The weather was warm by Salt Lake standards, there was no rain or wind like a few weeks ago, and we had plenty of sunshine.  I was actually able to ditch the hat and […]

10 things I love about running.

I’ve been looking more into the online running community lately by exploring twitter.  I discovered this great little group called #RunChat.  Every other Sunday a bunch of runners log onto Twitter and share their thoughts and inspiration on running.  Topics range from workout playlists to how to get over injuries.  It’s worth checking out sometime, […]

The dollars will come running in The best idea to get your team motivated to fundraise. Tomorrow we are picking our routes for the Ragnar Relay: Wasatch Back race.  As mentioned in this previous post, the secret to motivating your team to fundraise is to base route selection on who has accomplished the most fundraising.

Sh*z Ragnarians say; Wasatch Back Style

At the end of January, @RagnarRelay hooked into an internet meme and tweeted “Ragnar is jumping on the bandwagon but we need help! What is some #ShitRagnariansSay?”  I still have yet to participate in my first Ragnar Relay, so I can only guess what most of the responses mean.  However, I do know that if […]

Earning BIG bucks with Charitable Foundations

For a lot of the members of our team, the basic friends and family approach to fundraising has proven highly successful.  In this style of fundraising, you write a quick email and send it out to your close friends and family.  The email usually has a paragraph or two about why the person is raising […]

Twitter Motivation

Lately it’s been hard to get a lunch workout in while I’m at work.  This semester I have a class from 12-1 4 days a week and it takes up all of my time that I usually have for a workout.  As intriguing as bioanalytical chemistry is, I’d much rather be putting some miles behind […]

A soggy 12 miles

Today’s run was wet and rainy.  Utah has been unseasonably warm lately.  Today’s run would normally have been done in a snowstorm, but since it was 50 degrees this morning, we got to run in the rain.  The run was made a little more difficult by the fact that it wasn’t a consistent rain.  Just […]

Half Way There.

This last week our team hit the half way mark for our fundraising goal of $12,000.  All of this momentum has mostly happened within the last month. Prior to this month, I think our team raised around $1,700 over a 2-3 month period.  We really saw a shift in the fundraising this last month.  I […]
