These days, there are so many distractions to keep kids inside, in front of the computer or the games console. When they show an interest in athletics and physical fitness, you want to do everything you can to encourage them.

Cross country teams are a great thing for kids to get involved in, but of course tournaments and travel cost money, and naturally there are uniforms and shoes to think about, as well.

Having a cross country fundraiser is a great way for the runners to raise the money they need, and it also makes great use of their natural ambition and desire to reach their goals.

A card-based cross country fundraiser is a great way for small teams or even individual runners to raise a decent amount of money to contribute to expenses. Our fundraising pizza cards are extremely popular, both with fundraising teams and their supporters. Supporters get a great 2-for-1 deal on pizza, local pizza restaurants benefit from the additional business, and your cross country team gets to keep the profit on the cards. Everyone wins!

Scratch card fundraisers are another take on a cross country fundraiser that doesn't require any actual product delivery. The concept is as easy as it gets: your cross country team take the cards around to supporters, each of whom scratch off two of fifty covered dots on the card. The amount they reveal is the amount of their suggested donation. Some supporters will be feeling generous, and will round their donation up. The profits on scratch cards can be up to 90%, making them a fantastic choice for individuals or small teams that need to maximize profits on a smaller cross country fundraiser effort.

If you have any questions about putting together a cross country fundraiser that will work for you and your team, give your fundraising consultant a call.
