Laura Parson’s FKT Fundraising Site

Raising money to fund my FKT attempts to raise awareness of the benefits of learning in outdoor endurance events. 

Schedule:
August 2019 - Collegiate Trail Loop (Budget: $2,200)
December-January 2019-20 - Arizona Trail (Budget: $2,300)
Summer 2020: Run Across Georgia (Budget: TBA)
Summer 2021 - Run Across the USA (Budget: TBA ~$5,000 + RV)
2022 - The world?

Follow along on each effort at http://www.saltyrunning.com/author/cilantro/ 

Each effort will seek to raise money for Girls on the Run: https://www.raceplanner.com/donate/Laura-Parson-Run-Across-USA.

Each FKT attempt will happen on the schedule timeline if the budget is met; if not, the trip will be postponed until the financial goals have been met. In the event a trip is cancelled, donations made minus the GoFundMe servicing fee and any equipment purchased in advance of the trip will be donated to Girls on the Run via the donation link above.

Sponsorship levels:
Bronze: $30 - Social share on Instagram (@ultrarungal) & mention in next GoFundMe update
Silver: $50 - Signed copy of (future, pending contract) book about FKT attempts
Gold: $100 - Run Across the USA apparel choice (in development, t-shirt or tank)
Platinum: $1,000 - Webinar or in-person presentation on FKT attempts (before or after the Run Across the USA attempt)
