Reviving this old thread to ask a question.
We are doing United Way week and are organizing races, meals, sales, raffles, you name it. I'd like your input about a race. We are going to have a race with a limited number of participants (selected employees) and I'd truly appreciate your ideas on the following:
1. How would you go about getting people to donate for a race? I don't think people would pay to watch it, and don't think people could bet on the result - so am not sure what to do there.
2. How do you think the race could be made more interesting (while not being dangerous or overly risky)? It's a chair race on a set route in the office.
Any more tips on how to make this event work? The chair race itself is a given - we can't change the event, just the mechanics.
Thanks so much!
