This is to be FUN, and fun is the operative word. Since running to the dentist for a root canal isn’t fun but running to the store to buy a donut is fun, this is intended to be a FUN-run. Get it?
This is a RUN which means that running is involved, but since this is a VIRTUAL RUN, physically running is not necessary. "Running to the bathroom" counts, as well as running to the store for a bottle of wine; You know--whatever RUN is fun for you.
Finally, this is a FUNDRAISER, and this word is the most important part. We’re virtually fun-running to raise money to help people who live in nursing and Adult Foster Care (AFC) homes to participate with Operation Christmas Child, where we enable the residents to fill a shoebox with gifts for poor children for Christmas. So in every sense of the words, this is as the name suggests: a VIRTUAL FUN-RUN FUNDRAISER where we are putting the FUN in FUNdraising.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Everyone can participate in this Virtual Fun-Run, and that does mean everyone. Is your mind great at racing at night when you are trying to sleep? You should participate in this Virtual Fun-Run. Are you to a point in your life that the only thing that runs about you are your bowels? No matter, you can still virtually run. Maybe the only thing that runs is your nose? That counts as well, and you should participate. Or, hey, is your refrigerator running? Then you should join it and sign up for this virtual fun-run!
Are you getting the point? Whether you are too young to run, too old to walk, or anywhere in between, you are invited to participate in this First Annual Virtual Fun-Run Fundraiser.
WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?
When you participate in the Virtual Fun-Run Fundraiser you will receive a virtual medal in the form of an authentic paper certificate. And since our PR budget for this fundraiser is virtually non-existent, you’ll get your authentic "virtually colorful" black-and-white certificate tri-folded in a standard #10 business envelope with our monthly prayer letter, stamped with a genuine foil star sticker indicating your level of support. And you will be able to hang your certificate proudly on your refrigerator, garage wall, or even in your office cubicle beside your “Most Valued Employee” certificate at work. And that’s not all! Since this is an annual event, you can collect a new certificate every year and know that you virtually ran in order to seriously make the world a better place!
