Sports, Churches and Charity Organizations Can Benefit from Rotary’s 5K Fund Raising Opportunity in 2016

An organization’s reason to fund raise can range from a variety of needs – it could be to support a medical procedure, buy sports equipment, support a missionary, help a family in distress, pay educational expenses, defray travel expenses, etc.

Instead of contending with all the expenses, permits and liabilities associated with traditional fund raising, why not take advantage of an easier means of raising money offered by the Rotary Club of Bedford!  By using the 5K as a platform to raise funds through individual pledges, and the Bedford Rotary Club taking care of all the overhead, all the funds can be raised in a healthy fun filled morning, with little worry!

Using the Bedford Rotary 5K race/walk as the platform the procedure is quite simple – Each member of an organization registers for the May 21st 5K and asks friends & family to pledge an amount for each kilometer run or walked. Each participant collects his/her own pledges.  Getting pledges is much easier when your organization has a “cause” which generates a passion. Your organization determines the goal for the amount of money to be raised.

The Friends of Aine Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization established to help grieving children. We are raising funds to build centers of support, safety and compassion for the children, like our surviving daughter Bella, who feel alone because their brother or sister or mother or father died too soon.

Our goal is to support grieving children by raising funds to help Home Health & Hospice Care in Merrimack expand its existing bereavement support services for children in Southern New Hampshire and create a legacy for our daughter Aine. Over time, we hope to develop the Friends of Aine Center concept in other communities.
