We have finally set a date for our fundraiser. It will be THIS Friday, April 27th, 2012 at any class. If you cannot make it Friday you would just need to complete it by Monday the 30th at the latest. The WOD is going to be an AMRAP of Burpees and an AMRAP of Clean and Jerks…time TBD 🙂
So you are probably wondering how you should get donations. There are many ways. You can get sponsorships for burpee you do, or for every pound you move in the clean and jerks, or BOTH of course. So for example if you wanted to get .10 cents for every burpee and you do 100 in the time cap…then the person donating would have to donate $10.00. Or for the clean and jerks, you could ask someone to donate .01 for every pound you move. To put this in persctive doing Grace, 30 c & j @ 135#’s, is 4,050 pounds…which would be $40.50. That may be alot to ask in the form of donation so be creative in how you can structure your fundraising. Really all we are asking is that you try to raise at least $50.00. Whether you hit up people for a flat donation of $5.00 or $10.00, or get them to donate in the ways above, either way it doesn’t matter. Please just try to help the Surge team in any way you can. I know we are not raising money for breast cancer, or saving babies, or some other great cause, but I think we all know some people that would donate to you with $5 or $10. Please do what you can and know that it is helping our fellow Surge athletes and they greatly appreciate our help! Just to give you an idea of what costs the team is looking at…$300 to register, $150 per person for uniforms, $2100 for room, + ??? for food.
Please let us know if you have any questions. Also feel free to ask Jeff Shea as he has been heading up the fundraiser!
