Ok... I went to my first board of directors meeting for the Adamstown YMCA tonight. And, let me tell you, there was no pate and I went to the bathroom and the toilets were not golden. This was not going well. Then, the subject of fundraisers came up and I opened my fat mouth. That's right, I brought up the idea of an Adamstown YMCA 5k. Hmmm... I like running. I like my YMCA. Let's mix the two, right? Well, I'm not sure it's really that easy.
This is the part where I reach out to my friends and find out how crazy I really am. Anyone know anything about this? How many participants does it take to have a profitable race? How many volunteers does it take to run a race of say... I don't know... 100 people? Do organizations usually reach out to have a professional race organization run the race? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I haven't committed to anything yet (outside of my own head). But, I'm very intrigued by the idea. What do you all think?
