Support your local school to help raise vital funds and encourage active, healthy lifestyles.
Your organisation can now support local schools to help them raise vital funds and improve the health, fitness and wellbeing of their communities through sponsorship of a School Virtual Runathon.
A School Virtuathon® is an event that can be completed at any location on a given day – participants run outside or on a treadmill, individually or together, they can even walk providing they complete the distance! Participants are provided with comprehensive training via the Get Event Fit app, they're encouraged to fundraise and are rewarded with a Virtuathon® finishers medal for all their hard work.
School Virtual Runathons are for local communities of parents, their families and friends and school staff.
Schools encourage parents, their families and friends to donate or fundraise a minimum of £30 to raise vital funds for their school or partner charity.
For example, with only 50 parents participating in a School Virtuathon, the school could easily raise well over £1,500, or indeed more than £5,000 if there were 100 parents each raising £50.
This is a fascinating opportunity for your organisation to support one, or many local schools to help raise vital funds and encourage communities to become more physically active, whilst increasing awareness of your organisation through positive association and the accompanying PR stories.
Promote your organisation, brand or products
Your organisations' brand will be seen as the school sponsor when the School Virtuathon® is promoted to all parents, their families and friends within that school – for a secondary school that could be more than 3,000 people!
What is a School Virtuathon?
School Virtuathon's are great fun. They're designed to maximise participation, especially the less active, and encourage positive lifestyle choices through the daily delivery of comprehensive and easy-to-follow 8-week Runathon training programmes into the Get Event Fit app, consisting of fitness, nutrition, wellbeing, health, mindset and motivation.
Participants are encouraged to raise vital funds for their school or their schools' chosen charity and they're rewarded with a Virtuathon® finishers medal for all their achievement.
