Mission 500 Introduces M500 Club to Drive Participation in Virtual Events
The M500 Club will feature virtual 5k run/walks, cycling (spinning) events, talent shows, karaoke sing-offs, buzz and shaving challenges, and more.
MIAMI — Mission 500, a charitable nonprofit organization engaging security professionals to assist families in crisis across the United States, announces the launch of M500 Club, a 2020 foundational fundraising campaign.
As the world has pivoted into a new sense of normalcy, Mission 500 is shifting its fundraising focus from live to virtual events, redirecting fundraising activities from corporate sponsorships to individuals with the goal of raising $500 each to support the organization’s charitable activities.
“The M500 Club is a new and exciting initiative designed to help Mission 500 continue with its charitable work during the pandemic by directly engaging individuals with virtual events,” says Kenneth Gould, chairman, Mission 500. “And we are looking to make this a fun and engaging experience for participants through a series of fun fund-raising events that we hope inspires people to participate and support.”
Qualifying M500 Club members will have bragging rights via social media and will receive a M500 Club jacket. M500 Club will feature virtual 5k run/walks, cycling (spinning) events, talent shows, karaoke sing-offs, buzz and shaving challenges, basketball shooting contests and more. The organization also welcomes suggestions on events which we can add to our schedule.
Ronnie Pennington of Altronix individually raised $25,000 over the past five years and will be inducted as Mission 500’s first M500 Club member.
