Give your company’s Casual Friday a sportier look by transforming it into ACTIVE WEAR DAY. Employees who make a donation to FitSpirit get to wear sportswear or outerwear to work for the day, and maybe even participate in a sporting activity.
Whether you operate a small business or run a large office, this is the perfect opportunity to encourage your employees to adopt a healthy lifestyle and support our efforts to get girls to be more physically active at the same time.
ORGANIZING YOUR ACTIVE WEAR DAY:
1- Start by registering your company. It only takes 5 minutes. Use a photo or your company logo to customize your page.
2- Decide what type of activities you’d like to offer (click here for ideas) and what your fundraising target will be. Make sure your activities and goals are appropriate for:
- The number of employees working in your department or business.
- The target number of participants for each activity.
- The suggested contribution per participant.
- The employer contribution per participant or corporate donation matching program. Click here to see a sample tracking table.
3- Promote ACTIVE WEAR DAY to your employees. Here are a few tools to help you get started:
Announcement template to let employees know about your upcoming ACTIVE WEAR DAY.
Banner to personalize your communications.
Printable poster (8.5 x 14) with space at the bottom for event details (date, contact person, etc.). It’s suitable for posting wherever space permits: on bulletin boards, in the cafeteria, in the toilets, etc.
Facebook event image. Given the popularity of social media, we strongly recommend creating a Facebook event for your ACTIVE WEAR DAY and encouraging employees to get on board.
