Hey New England – Calling all Nonprofit Partners! It’s Race Time

By now you’ve probably heard about our big 10th Anniversary event coming up this summer.  We’ve joined forces with the Mad Marathon here in our hometown of Waitsfield, VT to create the 1st ever 1% for the Planet Mad Marathon. Dedicated to sustainability and environmentalism in New England, this event will help us to provide awareness and funding for the nonprofits and partnerships that protect the places we play. Not only should all of our partners plan on attending, but we also want to help raise money for your important causes.  How can we do this you ask?

Form a Team:

•   Create a team for your organization and encourage people to sponsor your runners! Your organization’s tile will show up on our leaderboard and potentially attract additional donations.
•   Ask participants on your team to spread the word about the race and your organization.  People love supporting these types of fundraising activities.
•   Ask individual supporters of your organization to participate in “The Most Beautiful Marathon in the World,” so they can raise funds by running on your behalf.  Runners have the choice of running the full marathon, half, or creating a relay team.  They will be sure to have a blast, while doing a good deed at the same time.
•   Have you already received donations from 1% member businesses?  Encourage these partners to form a team in support of your organization.
•   1% for the Planet will be supporting this event by providing numerous activities throughout the weekend and by publicizing it through our various marketing channels.  We can’t wait!

Last year, one nonprofit who fundraised using this race earned $27,000!  We’re looking for nonprofit partners who think they can blow this record away.  With a little effort and our support, we’re sure you can.

Next steps:

•   Please let us know if you are planning on participating. We’ll send you directions and help spread the word! Email us at or call us at 802-496-5408
•   Let us know if you are joining on our Facebook event page and invite others
•   Stay tuned for additional ways to participate over that weekend

We’re looking forward to celebrating all that you do. Start your training!
