It seems as if there’s a different charity walk going on every other week throughout the Summer months. So, what’s all the fuss about? Check out these five reasons to consider supporting a charity walk to learn more.
Raising money for a worthy cause is something to feel good about. The great thing about charity walks is you can raise money and have a great time simultaneously. Event Organizers will use your enrollment fee towards free refreshments, food and maybe even an afterparty the day of the event.
Charity is contagious, spread the word about the event you’re attending and inspire others. People love contributing to a good cause and they’re more likely to sign up for a walk if someone they know will be in attendance too.
Seeing hundreds of people parade down an otherwise busy street is a great way to get people in the community talking. Charity walks help spark people’s curiosity about a cause and raise awareness which will hopefully create a snowball effect inspiring other people to give to the cause.
Support Your Community
Organized walks create a sense of pride and unification in the community. Although they support serious causes, charity walks are often staged as a celebration. Participants are in a good mood and members of the community come out to see what all the fuss is about. Search for a walk being held in your area and use it as an opportunity to get acquainted with other members in your community.
Do it for Your Health
If anything else, do it for your health. Charity walks are great motivators for getting in shape. Sign up for a walk, set some fitness goals and start training. You’ll feel great the day you cross that finish line and you’ll be supporting a good cause in the process.
