Many of you know that racing for cause is more than just noble; it’s a way of life for some of us. Many of you also know that endorsement deals only work if athletes don’t do anything to spoil their brands nobility. These two basic concepts are what led us to create the mantra: “You Race. We Pledge. Sponsors Pay.” It is the driving force behind IR4C. IR4C stands for “I Race for Cause” and is a one of a kind online fundraising platform for you; the everyday endurance athlete. At IR4C, we help you raise money by getting corporate America to align with you and your causes.
Every year billions are spent on endorsement deals, and while there are plenty of professional athletes that do well by the brands they support, we believe you deserve a piece of the action. After all, YOU are the one racing, training, fundraising, and using their products and services! The process is very simple, you sign up and tell us what races you’re competing in, and we’ll do the rest. Corporate America will sponsor you because YOU are their new celebrity athlete.
IR4C also allows you to raise money from your network of friends and family year round, and for whatever 501(c)(3) non-profit you wish. For those of you who have taken on the daunting task of raising money for a cause, you know how tough it is to get everybody in before the deadline. At IR4C you are no longer up against any deadline and not tied to one event or even one specific charity. Your Billboard is yours to use and run campaigns whenever and however you want.
Running in the local 5K and want to raise money for cancer? No problem. Entering an ultra-cycling event or adventure race? No problem. You determine when you fundraise, what you fundraise for, and when you cash out. And unlike other platforms, we never take a cut of your donations. IR4C is about you, and about your philanthropy.
We believe we are on to something ground-breaking, and this is just the beginning. Be a part of it at www.IR4C.com. Sign up today, train hard, and continue to do what you do, just do it better!
