Nike has just one upped itself. It's no lie that I have enjoyed some fun events with Nike this past summer. They put on various events around the city to launch a summer of fuel, hyping up their fuel band.
So naturally, when I saw their new campaign, I was EXCITED. Nike donated almost 2 million dollars to restore areas devastated by Super Storm Sandy. Now, on September 8, if the people in NY metro area can accumulate 20 million Fuel Points, they will donate another million dollars to restore school sports facilities affected by Sandy. Basically, get active to get funds to schools that need it! My kind of day. For more information, click here.
Here are some ways you can help:
-Wear a Nike FuelBand and accumulate points. Upload that at the end of September 8 to be counted in the total fuel points in the NJ/NYC area.
- Use Nike+Running while running on Sunday to accumulate points! Download the free app and go about your usual business, but maybe go just a little bit further to add those points!
- WALK using Nike+Running! Going about your business in the city? Running some errands? START YOUR NIKE+! No matter how little, it will get points for students who need their athletics.
As a teacher, schools are close to my heart. As an active person/teacher whose school has LIMITED activity space, I am wholeheartedly ready to try to get over 10,000 fuel points that day. That is a HUGE amount, but I am ready to do it for the kids that need it.
How about you? Have you ever helped out a community group? Do you volunteer at any local schools? Will YOU be counted toward the 20 million fuel points? TELL ME ABOUT IT!
