Run, Walk, and Raise Funds for Hostage US

March 12, 2021 - April 12, 2021

Run, Walk, and Raise Funds for Hostage US!

Hostage US is holding a month-long virtual fundraising event concluding on our 5th anniversary, April 12, and we need your help!

Log your miles from March 12 to April 12 to help us reach our goal of collectively running or walking 200 miles to call attention to the estimated 200 Americans taken hostage abroad each year. Find sponsors to pledge $1-5 dollars per mile you run during the month-long fundraiser!

Help us reach our goal in 4 easy steps:

Step 1: Commit to Run or Walk

Sign up and log as many miles running or walking as possible in our aim to break 200. Work towards your fitness goals AND raise funds and awareness for Hostage US!

Step 2: Recruit Sponsors

Reach out to your networks and recruit sponsors to pledge between $1 and $5 for every mile you log! Your goal is to recruit 10 sponsors to donate to your effort. Participants will be provided with a helpful packet of resources to help get your friends, family, and coworkers to support.

Step 3: Track Your Miles

We will send you the information for the tracking app to keep a log of your miles, and our collective progress will be featured on our website. Hostage US is also securing additional sponsors who will maximize your impact if we break our 200-mile goal.

Step 4: Celebrate!

All participants are invited to our virtual Annual Reception on April 12, when we will celebrate our mission and what we have accomplished together!
