Walkathon Style BBQ?
Has anyone ever been involved with a contest with a fundraiser aspect like a walkathon?
I'm thinking of something like finding sponsors who will pay a certain amount for every top ten finish instead of every mile walked.
Is there anything like that out there?
Let's say that every team had 5 people that sponsored them at $5.00 a pop for each top 10 entry. Let's also assume that there are 5 categories.
50 top tens for the event
$1,250.00 for the associated charity.
There are two things that stick out here:
1) It seems that it might be hard to motivate teams to actually get people to sponsor them this way in a contest. Who would want to be bothered?
2) On the other hand, charity walkathons are hugely popular and each participant gets tons of sponsors. Why not BBQ people?
