Title: Advice for sharing charity touring info
Post by: TeacherJer on May 02, 2021, 02:43:33 pm
Hello fellow riders! I am seeking advice about how to best spread the word about a charity tour I am doing this summer. I am riding from Canada to Mexico along the Pacific Coast (1,700+ miles) to raise money for suicide prevention. I have a Facebook page dedicated to the ride and a Charity GoFundMe page (which is currently at $5000 of my $30,000 goal) and I have created fliers and distributed them to all of the local bike shops. I also have a documentary film crew filming a mini-documentary (15 minutes) on me, my charity, and my goal. Aside from that I want to reach out and ask everyone reading this if you know of any other places I can spread the word. I feel that I am doing something really special that can possibly help a lot of people, so I want the whole world to know about it, so I can help as many as possible. Any help from you is greatly appreciated. Thank you all in advance! I will attach my flier so you can check out my mission.

Without trying to sound mean, there a thousands of charity rides a year, at least normal years, so you have a lot of competition.  I would probably just hit up TV stations and newspapers and radio shows along the way.

Tailwinds, John
