@rcoffee I love the idea of raising money and getting people fit in the process. What I am suggesting for a successful fundraising event is to think outside of the box. Ask yourself or your organization rather, why a 5K? If the answer is general, and can be regurgitated by any other nonprofit organization then you are doing your fundraising efforts a disservice. Nonprofits have a passionate vision and powerful mission statements. When thinking of including donors, contributors and volunteers into fundraising efforts, draw them into each event that the organization is passionate about and the type your target audiences would care to get involved in.

@Lisa Gerber Thank you for the opportunity!! I loved writing this! A little provocative. Wait to you see how I take on education and the immediate need for re-branding. :-)

Exactly Adam - There needs to be a clear vision as to why an organization puts a fundraiser together such as a 5K and it cannot be because "that's what every other nonprofit is doing." There is no incentive for you to be engaged. The mission of every nonprofit holds enough creativity to find individuality in fundraising events.
