The Great Race for Saving Water 5K Fun Run/Walk is Back and better than ever. On Saturday, April 14th beginning at 9am, this year’s race will include professional timers, course markers, and amenities that are not to be missed! As the original non-profit partner of this popular event, we are excited to invite you to support the river you love by becoming a TRT friend-raiser!
TRT has hosted outdoor event fundraisers Paddle to the Sea and By Land and By River where TRT members participating in the event raise funds that support TRT’s work by asking their network to sponsor their participation. We are not hosting Paddle to the Sea/By Land and By River this year, and invite you to instead run/walk in the Great Race and become a friendraiser for TRT in the weeks leading up to April 14th.
Option 1: Create your own fundraising page and ask your network to support your participation in the Great Race. You can see our current team here: https://www.flipcause.co
m/secure/team_fundraiser/MzA3M DY=/2229You can click on each person’s individual fundraising page to get ideas for how to set up your own.Option 2: Ask your network to support our friendraiser by donating to a teammate. This includes sending emails, texts, social media posts, phone calls, whatever you see fit asking for a contribution to the TRT team. This is a good option for people who do not want to run/walk in the race.Option 3: Get a business or corporation (or several) to sponsor a team member – this could be a donation to the TRAC team, Randy the Riverdog, Gordon Becker’s tribute page, or any of the other profiles on the page.
Funds raised will support our work to protect and restore the river, with a special focus on programs that inspire the next generation of river lovers (and stewards). The Great Race for Saving Water highlights the power we each have to positively impact the health of our water, air, and land. We believe that teaching the importance of stewardship to our leaders is key to the long-term protection of the Tuolumne, and invite you to join us today.
