I don’t know about you, but when I envision a charity dare, I picture people up and MOVING. That’s what really makes thing exciting, isn’t it! The pulse of a concert crowd, a great workout or and adventure travel trip with friends can all be some of the most exciting events to experience. However, in order to think outside the box and move away from typical charity runs, dares should be unique and have special calls to action beyond running around a track.
Why are these types of events beneficial?
With information being more plentiful than ever in the health and wellness world, exercise and eating right is a booming trend worldwide. New types of gyms and diets are popping up constantly, with all types of people swearing that this or that works flawlessly. But it seems many of these people indulging in extra fitness forget that moving is supposed to be fun! Illustrate this point though a well-thought out charity dare and blend together people’s love of exercise with the idea of helping others.
Great ideas for active charity dares
You can approach your fitness-themed charity dare in a variety of ways. Maybe your two tough-talking male co-workers could have a push-up competition wearing tutus. Perhaps you could dare a best friend to organize a massive pillow fight in the center of your local park. Or, you could make those dreams of seeing your favorite celebrity lead a yoga class come true by daring Jennifer Garner or Liam Neeson to get fit with you and whoever else wants to participate. Think of wackier ideas too, like daring stars to play against you in paintball, breakdancing battles, bellyflopping or even Quiddich.
Marketing a charity dare that’s fitness-centered
Appeal to all those friends of your posting their CrossFit workouts, Paleo diets and fitness goals on Facebook! Those are the exact kind of people who would get behind and donate to something helping others get into shape. Contact charities that are involved in health, such as Boys and Girls clubs that work on programs to keep kids active. You could even network to get some celebrity interest, especially stars who are in great shape and love volunteering to campaign for public wellness. But spend a good chunk of time first coming up with that fantastic dare that will really wow people, so when you do start contacting charities, your friends or celebrities they won’t be able to say no!
