  • 4. TIP #1: MIX THE HEROES RACE INTO YOUR COMMUNICATION PLAN • As soon as your charity is registered, create a page on your website to explain the Heroes Race’s principle. Add a link to register and the video trailer on your page. • Relay all the news from the Heroes Race (interviews, trainings, etc.) in all your medias: news on your website, newsletter, etc. • Plan to send a recruitment email to your supporters according to your communication plan. 4
  • 5. TIP #2: WRITE EFFECTIVE MESSAGES • Your messages should be concise, factual and motivating • Write messages in your website, newsletters and emails Here is an example of a message you can use: On the (DateofEvent), a team of runners from our charity will participate in the Heroes Race (PlaceofEvent). The Heroes Race is a sportive challenge: you have to run or walk 6km but it is first a solidarity challenge ! Before the event, you have to register on (WebsiteofEvent), choose our charity and raise 300€ of donations from your friends thanks to your online fundraising page. The first Heroes Race in Paris in 2010 enabled to raise 300.000€ from 7200 donators. The funds raised by our team will help: [describe here the project financed with the funds raised during the Heroes Race] You can be a hero too! Join our team to discover a modern and original way to support our charity. More information: [insert a contact email here] 5
  • 6. TIP #3: CONDUCT FIELD MARKETING ACTIONS • Organize a small event where you present the Heroes Race, the projects financed with the funds raised and meet your team of participants. • Print and place posters on your billboards. • Spread the word around you about the race. Tell your runners to do the same so you can increase the number of participants in your community! • Personally call your partners, runners from 2010 and best supporters. It is more friendly than a simple email! 6
  • 7. TIP #4: APPROACH YOUR PARTNER COMPANIES • Approach your partner companies and suggest them to set up a team of runners. For your partner companies it is the opportunity : → to do some team building on the occasion of a meaningful event: sport during a great solidarity event to support your charity’s projects. → to communicate about their support to your charity, by using the event’s pictures of their team at the race, and thus benefiting from the event’s media coverage 7
  • 8. TIP #5: ENCOURAGE THE CREATION OF TEAM PAGES We advise you to encourage team pages creation for your organization. Thanks to this tool each team leader can easily recruit his friends or colleagues and run together for your charity ! How can your supporters create a team page? • The team leader registers on the website and chooses to create a team. He then creates his individual fundraising page, (which will appear on the team page). • He invites his coworkers and friends to join the team by giving them the team password. Each new runner will then create his individual fundraising page and each pages will appear on the team page. 8
