How to start a Charity: Water fundraiser walkathon?

Clean drinking water is such a large issue in today’s society. Lack of clean drinking water kills more people than all forms of violence, including war.

I would like to organize a walkathon to raise money to build a well through Charity: Water. One well costs $5,000 and takes one year to build, after which the people who donated the money are given information and a picture of the well that they funded. I have a lot of great ideas already, but I don’t know how to do the most important thing – collect the money. I’ve never done a walkathon or marathon of any sort so I’m not sure how that all works. On the Charity:Water website you can start a campaign where people can donate, but I’m not sure how that works out with teams, etc.

Is there anyone who is familiar with this type of fundraiser or Charity: Water that could give me some advice?

First you need to be 18 yrs of age, register your nonprofit with the government and receive a tax exempt number before you start a charity.
