Event Update Email

We recommend sending an update email one or two days following your event completion. It is a way to:

  1. Update your friends, family and colleagues about your event
  2. Remind your prospective donors there is still time to contribute to your cause
  3. Create a back stop for getting those “last minute” donations in

Hello Everyone,

I did it!  On October XX, I completed the XXX.  The event was a total success.  I had a fabulous time, and you were a part of my event success!

Not only did I cross my second running event finish line, I got to do so in honor of XXX. They and YOU were my biggest motivation for making it to my start and finish lines.

THANK YOU to everyone who made a contribution to XXX.  Your generosity will go a long way and will support so many.   For those of you who would still like to donate to XXX, there is still time. Our deadline for donation collection is {two weeks from event date}.

Thank you for all your support and words of encouragement while I trained for the event. It was an amazing experience, and I can’t wait until next year!

Warmest Regards,

Hi Everyone,

As promised I’m sending my event update.

I finished with a time of 2:19:58. I was pleased with my performance. I completed the 800 meter swim in 21:49, the bike in 1:02:31, and lastly the run in 42:49. I was really pleased with my swim. I kept my pace and felt good coming out of the water. The bike was hilly and windy so I was happy to finish with an average speed of 13 mph. The run was hard. I am still getting into running shape so to throw hills into the mix made it difficult. I walked up the hills and tried to run the flats and down hills. Overall for my second sprint triathlon was a success.

My other finish line was racing for XXXXX. I am happy to say I have raised $1,500 so far towards my goal of $2,000.

Your contribution is making a difference.

If you planned on making a contribution and forgot or are just now ready, there is still time to help me cross my fundraising finish line.

Just click this link {Insert your fundraising page link here} and support the children for whom I was racing. I ask that you consider making a $100 contribution. If you can do more, great. Any amount will support XXXXX in making a difference.

Check out the attached picture of me in action.

Thanks again for your support.
