Pseudo Naked 5k Presentation

  1. 1. Pseudo Naked 5k<br />By:Mikayla Sanocki & Rachel Zacher<br />
  2. 2. Origin<br />The Pseudo Naked 5K was developed in an RA class by four RA’s. <br />Each group in the RA class had to do a different project (Social, Educational, Diversity, and Service).<br />The Pseudo Naked 5K can serve all four of these projects! <br />The Pseudo Naked 5K started with no budget.<br />
  3. 3. 1. To have fun. This is meant to be beneficial to the community of Winona, Winona State University, and Housing and Residence Life. <br />2. Outreach and support from the community. Raising money and awareness is important towards this cause. <br />3. To reach and engage new audiences. We want this to be a program, students look forward to every year. <br />Goals<br />
  4. 4. Pseudo Naked? <br />This event raises awareness regarding various forms of cancer.<br />An opportunity for involvement from students and faculty on campus with a fun twist.<br />Pseudo Naked = Fake Naked. <br />Wearing flesh colored clothing, bathing suits, boxers, or short shorts gives the look of being naked! <br />
  5. 5. Organization<br />Our group consisted of nine people. <br />Three – Four people could do this program. <br />Utilize RA’s, Hall Council members etc. from various buildings. This can help you advertise and handle any objectives you may have! <br />We started this program in the fall. It takes a lot of planning! If you want sponsors or allocations… do this right away! <br />Your program is revolved around your budget! <br />People<br />Time<br />
  6. 6. 1, 2, 3… WALK, RUN, ROLL…<br />This year, we made the Pseudo Naked 5K a walk, run, and roll event.<br />Roll = rollerblading or biking<br />Competition? We wanted this to be fun, and competition may deter many students from participating.<br />Still have a timer to clock time for those that want it. <br />
  7. 7. Budget<br />Originally, the 5K group started with a budget of 0 dollars.<br />After allocating money, we had a budget of $2200.00<br />Look to various clubs on campus to sponsor or allocate money. <br />Examples on campus: <br />Student Senate<br />Hall Council/RHA<br />Relay for Life (Colleges Against Cancer)<br />Athletic Department<br />Greek Council<br />
  8. 8. Cost<br />Your largest cost will more than likely be t-shirts. Expect the cost to be well over 1,000.00. <br />If you do any food at the race, there could be a cost there.<br />Any marketing that you choose may also cost money. Ex. Radio ads or Facebook ads.<br />The only cost we had were t-shirts.<br />Fruit and water were donated by our food service at WSU!<br />
  9. 9. T-Shirts<br />Cost this year was about 1700.00 for shirts (about 5.25 per shirt). <br />Each color corresponded with a different cancer.<br />Teel - Ovarian<br />Purple – General Cancer<br />Light Blue - Testicular<br />Pink – Breast<br />Cost and Colors: <br />
  10. 10. “I Need a Promotion…”<br />This program requires heavy advertising.<br />Word of Mouth!<br />Our goal was simply to make itself known. Leave it to students to talk about it!<br />Big and Small PR<br />“All Campus” Emails<br />Emails to RA’s or Hall Directors to send to residents<br />Facebook groups<br />Pre-Registration<br />Get other clubs involved!<br />Remember, many programs fail because of a lack of advertising. Standing out creates recognition. Recognition leads to participation. <br />
  11. 11. “You’d Better Recognize!” <br />This year we chose to make a recognizable logo for the 5K. <br />Our naked runner became our logo.<br />Logos will help create “brand” recognition!<br />Put on all advertisements! <br />
  12. 12. Nudity Promotes Community! <br />This phrase became the Pseudo Naked’s main slogan.<br />It’s a fun way to PROMOTE your program.<br />The slogan was used in our advertisements<br />and t-shirts! <br />
  13. 13.
  14. 14. Online Registration<br />Online Registration allowed us to reach new audiences. <br />It is important for any program to handle objectives. One such objective was the ability to pay for the 5K.<br />Debit/Credit Cards are amongst most college students. They could pay anytime and anywhere! <br />As a 5K committee, you are then able to see who has donated, what t-shirt color, and size they have.<br />Set up tables by your lunch room or heavily passed areas by students. Set up computers and help students register online!<br /><br />
  15. 15. Educational<br />That’s right. We made this program Educational! <br />Display boards had information on the various forms of cancer we were promoting.<br />They were strategically placed by the water and fruit at the end of the race.<br />
  16. 16. Sponsors?<br />Sponsors can be hugely beneficial to your group as they may help with cost, donations, and recognition. <br />Remember, you must contact these sponsors well in advance! A year or more would be best!<br />Benefits:<br />Example: <br />
  17. 17. Day of the Race - Preparation<br />Remember to wear your shirts! <br />Set up registration tables.<br />Outline course with chalk or signs.<br />Set up tables for t-shirt pick up.<br />Set up tables for food or drink (if available).<br />
  18. 18. Day of the Race – Preparation II<br />Grab walkies. Have some workers at each corner to prevent any accidents/injuries.<br />Set up a tent if rainy.<br />Bring some tunes and speakers… Nothin’ like “Eye of the Tiger” to pump people up!<br />
  19. 19. Results?<br /> 200 Participants!<br />Raised: <br /> over $1600.00<br />For the American Cancer Society!!<br />**The largest turn out of the year for residence<br /> housing association program!**<br />
  20. 20. Improvements<br />A website would be extremely beneficial. A continuous form of media serves as information for you, potential markets, and gives you something tangible for others to visually see.<br />A sponsor, again, can be a huge advantage for your program!<br />Work with other clubs! This is made to be beneficial for your University!!!<br />
  21. 21. Adaptation – Your College!<br />Make this into a fundraiser for your Hall Council or RHA program.<br />Put a spin on your Relay for Life!<br />Use this as a program to promote health for breast/testicle examinations!<br />
  22. 22. We can help. At Winona State University, we can help you set up an online website for registration at your school. We would also provide you with a contact from the American Cancer Society to help guide you through the program! <br />We are also available to you guys for any questions or concerns you may have. Truly, “Your people, Our network.” <br />Need Help?<br />
  23. 23. Remember…<br />NUDITY PROMOTES COMMUNITY!!!!<br />
