Difference Maker Challenge

Difference Maker Challenge

Be a Wendell Foster Difference Maker and run with purpose! When training for the Wendell Foster Half Marathon, help spread awareness of our mission by sharing with friends and family why you’re racing. By helping spread awareness, you could qualify for some awesome gear! 

How it Works

1. Create a personalized donation page through the Wendell Foster Half Marathon Fundraising site. Once there, create an account and set your personal goal. Our combined goal for 2021 is to raise $25,000. (Get detailed directions.)


2. Recruit your friends and family to share in Wendell Foster’s mission! Challenge them to donate by posting a workout, tagging your race swag, or showing off your WFHM yard sign on social media. Include your fundraising page link in your post, and be sure to use the hashtags #WFDifferenceMaker and #WFHM. You can tag our Facebook page too at @WFHalf. 


3. Raise money and win prizes! The cut-off date to receive prizes by race day is October 15, 2021. Otherwise, the prize will be mailed to you after the race. Fundraising ends on Monday, November 22, 2021. Prizes are divided into the following levels:
