Announcement: Walkathon Charity Events

walkathon

A walkathon can be a great way to raise money for your organization or special project. Yes, a walkathon is a fundraiser. However, it is much more.

Walkathons are used to let others know about your organization’s mission. These charity events can be used to engage and promote local businesses. They also can be used as a way to identify new volunteers and advocates.

With so many potential benefits coming from one of these walk events, it is no surprise that many organizations are now hosting walkathon fundraising events. There are at least three major items to consider before deciding to get started:

  1. Successful walkathons require significant planning and preparation. You may have attended a walk event in the past that appeared easy. The easier it looks, the more planning and preparation was probably given to it that made it appear easy. Make sure you have several committed volunteers before getting started.
  2. Successful walkathons usually require some money before the fundraising begins and always requires insurance that covers the event. if your organization does not have an adequate insurance that will cover the walkathon, this is an additional cost that must be considered before getting started. Enlisting sponsors to your event can be a great way to raise the startup capital required.
  3. Successful walkathons require something that allows it to stand out above all of the other walkathons and other charity events that are taking place in the same time frame.  This something could be some twist to the event itself or it could be something unique about the organization’s mission or project the money is being raised for.

If you still want to hold a walkathon after considering these items, good for you! The purpose of the Walkathon Blog is to provide ideas, tips, resources and stories that will help you in your endeavor.

Enjoy!

FractalFusion’s Mega Man X “glitched password, walkathon” TAS in 16:56.88

***READ BEFORE WATCHING***

This tool-assisted speedrun by FractalFusion aims to beat Mega Man X by using a glitched password and walking all the way as fast as possible.

The author’s comments on the run can be found here: http://tasvideos.org/3620S.html

It was made on an emulator, using frame-by-frame shooting, savestates, and rerecords to overcome things like reaction time and human error. As such, it is purely a form of entertainment, and is not designed to show skill.

This’ the author’s channel:

Be sure to subscribe to it if you enjoyed the run.

Any anti-TAS comments will be deleted. Seriously, if you’re just going to call it “cheating” or something equally ridiculous, don’t even bother commenting at all, because I’ll just block you. Save us both a bit of time.

Check out http://TASVideos.org/ to find out more about tool-assisted speedruns, and to watch the many already-existing awesome TASes.
