Running a virtual marathon campaign in the age of Coronavirus

We live in truly unprecedented times. The Covid-19 pandemic has brought the whole world together in a common cause i.e. how to defeat this disease and work together to get over the major blow that every sector and industry has received due to the pandemic. The Non-Profit sector has also been hit hard with the global pandemic. This unique situation has created many fundraising challenges for most of the Non-Profits. This has accelerated the need to find new and creative ways to engage donors and volunteers, as Non-Profits are being compelled to move to virtual means to keep fundraising alive.

During the COVID-19 pandemic when gathering in person is not possible, leaning towards virtual events can keep Non-Profits on top of mind of their supporters, audiences engaged, and can help get new donors and volunteers as well. A virtual campaign will be beneficial for the Non-Profit as it will not be limited to a specific area but will expand their geographical reach.

SociallyGood, world’s first digital marketplace for social change has been striving hard to customize and curate various kinds of campaigns and announced new resources and services to help Non-Profits navigate their fundraising during the COVID-19 pandemic. SociallyGood has devised flexible online fundraising solutions to help Non-Profits continue to engage supporters in the current social distancing scenario by maximizing virtual giving opportunities.

One such virtual event that SociallyGood is proud to be a part of is, Youth for Seva’s – Virtual Marathon 2020. The Virtual Marathon is a fun initiative that is being conducted to raise funds towards providing scholarship support to underprivileged students, promoting volunteerism in the society, and supporting changemakers. Supporters from all walks of life like individuals, corporates, colleges, running groups, foreign residents, teams etc. are welcome to participate. They can join from anywhere in the world and can take part in this initiative at their convenience. One can choose from the 1-2K (Majja run)/ 5K /10 K/21.1K (Half marathon) and can also choose to run on a treadmill from the comfort of their homes.

We urge people to come forward in large numbers to support the campaign and make this virtual marathon a huge success. The funds raised through this will go a long way in supporting higher education of underprivileged children, supporting changemakers, and ignite the spirit of giving & promote volunteerism in the society.
