It’s been an unprecedented year for the running industry, with events shifting to virtual or postponing to 2021. We at Pig Works are grateful for our loyal participants who have supported us through these challenging months, as we look to sustain not only our own events and non-profit organization, but the non-profits who depend on our events for fundraising.
With the support of our community, we remain optimistic about the long-term health of the running industry. However, in the short term, we are seeking financial support to get us to the time when we can all be at the start line again. On this Giving Tuesday, we ask you to consider donating to Pig Works so we can continue to build on the over $18 million that we have raised for our charity partners since our inception.
As a thank you, anyone who makes a donation of $50 or more by Sunday, December 6 will receive a 3-pack of custom ASICS Flying Pig socks. Kudos to ASICS for helping us kick it up!
For the runner/walker in your life, we also have the Lifetime Membership Program that will offer entry into selected Pig Works events for life. Whether it’s a holiday gift for a friend or family member or a treat for yourself, the gift of lifetime registration is one that will be appreciated and used for years to come. And, as an added incentive, we have a generous donor who will match contributions up to $275,000. That unexpected and much appreciated opportunity will make your contribution go even further and will help to ensure the on-going mission of Pig Works for years to come.
Thank you for being part of our Pig Works community. I have missed seeing all of you at our start and finish lines in 2020 and look forward to flying again with you all in the future!
