I'm hoping this is a good forum for this topic.<br><br>
I want to raise some money and awareness with the races I do in spring 2008. I am still finalizing the specific organization I'll choose, based on a conversation I will soon have with a childhood friend's wife who really inspires my running.<br><br>
Anyway -- has anyone ever raised money for a smaller organization (not TnT or the more formally "set-up" ones) with running? How did you do it? What worked well for soliciting and collecting donations? Did you do anything else to raise funds besides ask others for contributions?<br><br>
Is there anything else I should know?<br><br>
Thanks very much for any insight you can provide.

I think Roots did something more on a smaller scale with a website. I'd pm him and see what is up.<br><br>
I'd like to do some charity running in the future for the Ohio Mother's Milk Bank. So post when you figure out how to do it!

Here's a site I've considered using for the same purpose, although I haven't actually set anything up: <a href="http://www.firstgiving.com/" target="_blank">http://www.firstgiving.com/</a><br><br>
You can choose an organization to raise money for, and donations can be handled through the web site. Can't say for sure how it would be to use it, though, having not actually tried it--but maybe others here have and can comment or know of sites like it.
