Tag 4 A Cause
Laser Tag 5K Challenge
Supporting the Lustgarten Foundation
Pancreatic Cancer Research
Would you like to play some laser tag and earn a victory medal while helping the fight against pancreatic cancer? I want to invite you to be part of the very first Tiviachick's Tag 4 A Cause Laser Tag 5K Challenge, which is an opportunity for fitness and fundraising through laser tag to help make a difference during Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month.
Laser tag is tremendous fun, but it is also great for fitness and you can take it at your own pace! Please join me in taking on this laser tag challenge. I'm making a personal commitment to laser tag the equivalent distance of a 5K race this November and at the same time I will be partnering with Apex Entertainment to raise monetary donations for the Lustgarten Foundation Pancreatic Cancer Research.
Raising awareness for this research is important to me because I lost my brother, Guy, to pancreatic cancer in 2012. That's why I will be laser tagging my 5K in honor of my brother. Will you take on this laser tag challenge with me? Here's how in three easy steps!
Step 1 - Pledge To Laser Tag:
Pledge to laser tag the distance of a 5K in the laser tag arena of your choice anytime during the month of November. This is a virtual challenge that you can complete on your own or with friends in ANY laser tag arena of your choice. It's like a participating in a run/walk event only you will laser tag the distance instead and measure your own cumulative distance using a fitness tracker or phone app. Have you ever thought about how many steps you actually take in an average game of laser tag? It’s probably more than you think, so I'm asking you to pledge to tag enough steps to be the equivalent of a 5K. Depending on the laser tag system you choose and the length of each game you might be looking at playing 10-12 games of laser tag. You can tag it all in one day or spread it out over multiple days. It is fine to complete this challenge at your own pace, however it works best for you. Keep adding it up your until your accumulated distance during the games reaches a total equivalent of 5K (or 3.1 miles).
Step 2 - Make a Donation:
For this challenge I'd like to ask you to make a donation to the
Lustgarten Foundation Pancreatic Cancer Research. Of course, any donation is greatly appreciated.
"Thanks to separate funding to support administrative expenses,
100 percent of every donation goes directly to research."
Here is the link so that you can make your donation to them directly:
Step 3 - Claim Your Victory Medal:
(limited quantities for first 50 challenge participants to donate and submit the form below)
After you make your donation, please use the online form below to verify your donation receipt number and
I will send you a victory medal to commemorate your completion of the challenge!
The nitty-gritty: The medals will be available in limited quantities and will be allocated on a first-come basis. They will only be shipped to addresses within the U.S.A., however if you are late to the party (I'll post it here once they are all gone) or if you are participating in another country, we still want to congratulate you and will instead send you a digital certificate of achievement by email.
Thank You to Apex Entertainment in Albany, NY
for hosting the first Tag 4 A Cause Laser Tag 5K Challenge
event to help raise funds and awareness
for pancreatic cancer research
I completed my personal 5K at Apex Entertainment inside Crossgates Mall in Albany, NY on November 7th
alongside both public players and individuals who were Tagging 4 A Cause to complete their Laser Tag 5K Challenge as well.
Prior to starting each game all players were told that November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month
and to symbolize that they were offered a free purple ribbon. Here are some photos from the event!
More nitty-gritty: All donations should be made directly between you and the charity via the fundraising link on this page. My goal is simply to bring attention to the causes I believe in and giving you a little motivation to get out and play laser tag with a purpose. Also, the completion of the 5K is on the honor system, to be done on your own and at your own pace. If you sign-up I believe you will do it. I also welcome you to send in a photo or selfie to when you complete your laser tag 5K. Wear your medal and show the world how you made a difference while laser tagging and I'll post your photo on this website.
So, can I count on you to pledge and donate during
Tiviachick's Tag 4 A Cause Laser Tag 5K Challenge in November 2020?
