Epic 48 hour Day & Night Sponsor Run
This is a very powerful trick used by Namaste Nepal student club to generate funds for development of their partner village in Nepal.
On one week-end, in their town of 35,000 inhabitants, they generate $40,000€
worth many times more in low income regions!!!
Other small town schools joining the quest make $10,000€ in year 1, $20,000€ in year 2.
Here is what that looks like.
It has become the annual highlight in the town’s event calendar.
This trick can work everywhere. HERE’S WHY PEOPLE LOVE IT and why it raises so much money!
Also in towns “where nothing ever happens.”
In recent years, awareness for global crisis has grown.
Also, the need for citizen action.
Also, respect for caring youth.
What they lack is GOOD opportunity to do good.

A sponsor run
hidden for two hours in the summer sun, behind school or stadium walls is a very bad idea
for 48 hours, nonstop day and night, from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon is a very good idea
“wow, awesome” – people pay attention, sense of epic, it’s newsworthy, makes vivid photos
The 48 hour week-end time window gives diverse people opportunity to take part.
get on board for the adventure to run 2 and 4 o’clock night shifts and compete to be most awesome
“Mom, I’m not coming for dinner, I gotta run, for the kids. FOR FRODO!”
seize this role model occasion and bring their school and kindergarten classes.
That’s a lot of runners, who also have siblings, and parents, who have workmates, employees and FUNDS.
join in and make miles
Everywhere exist marathon runners, cyclists, football teams … they can
- jog and do endurance runs
- bring their teams and clubs
- bring their kids, activate schools
- bring colleagues, activate companies
and when the mayors is there, media come
report or even take part
and when media report, companies join in
fund and sponsor runners for completed laps
also take part with their staff and compete for the company cup and get a grandiose gilded worn out running show as trophy,
even inspire other franchises to take part.
