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!

People care. 

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.

GOOD means

  • popular common sense issue
  • high impact solution
  • trusted, successful recipients
  • vivid, memorable story
  • passionate local youth crew
  • easy to contribute
  • swift in busy daily life
  • all generations
  • aligned with professional ideals
  • and enjoyable, FUN

We have that. Now you have it. even a whole bunch of choices!

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.
