Here are some ideas for how to help spread the word about Run Across America. The more people join us, the greater our collective impact for Feeding America and the more Frontline Workers we can thank together.
1. Create a team
Race day is more fun with friends. On your order confirmation page, you'll find a link that you can use to invite people to join your team. On race day, you can cheer each other on, share finish line selfies, and compete for the fastest time.
Once your team is created, use the Invite button to get a custom join link. That way when you share, it's easy for others to join your team.
2. Share on social media
This is why they invented Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. We've found that social media can be a great way to share the race with family and friends. A few tips - it helps to add a personal story, it's way more likely that your friends will join you if you share a story about why you're participating. For those who need some motivation, your friends can also keep you accountable in your training if you share regular updates.
3. Send a personal email or call
These days, it's great that we're all checking in with each other. But if you're like us, sometimes you run out of news to talk about with far-flung relatives. And we could all certainly use bright spots in our inboxes. One to one communication is great for sharing about the event and how you're getting ready.
4. Challenge your colleagues
If you're lucky enough to have a job where you can work from home, challenge your colleagues to join you! Everyone could use a break from unending video conferences. Have a competition with other teams about who can sign up the most participants. Learn more about getting the whole team involved with our Employee Engagement program.
