The 11th Run For IT! fundraising event starts on July 28th in Odorheiu Secuiesc. This year we accept applications from any NGO or initiative that has a dream and wants to make it true. This is an excellent opportunity to raise awareness of the organisation and the project, to raise funds and to build valuable human connections.
What is also important this year is that only community-based cases can be “nominated”. After the NGO registration, we”ll pay our attention to the Ambassadors, as their registration will be active right away. It is up to them to run, walk or cycle the mileage they have undertaken. Once the registration of ambassadors closes, the sponsorship period will begin. In these few weeks, teams and their ambassadors can work together to reach their target amount in order to make their plans a reality.
The highlight of the event will be the joint run on 9th of October, starting at 11 am at the Odorheiu Secuiesc City Park, but if a team wants to run on a different location, it is possible.
Our enthusiasm is undiminished as we are preparing for this year’s event with tons of hope. All the NGOs and initiative groups are more than welcome to apply.
