Hello Board - We're just 14 days away from what we've said is our biggest fundraiser and signature event - The Discover Hartford Bicycle Tour.
Please remember to spread the word to register to your network--it's so important. Please send your contacts to www.bikewalkct.org/discover-hartford for details and to register. We also need you to volunteer: please sign up at http://www.bikewalkct.org/discover-hartford-volunteer.html . Thank you!
Let's hope the good weather trend continues - it helps our registration count!
Here's where we stand as of Saturday morning 9/7/13:
Advertising: In the earned media category, the Courant calendar section gave us a nice feature on 9/5. Tom Condon featured us in a Courant editorial on 8/30. You already know this, but we have a 1/4 page ad in all the greater Hartford Life newspapers--9 editions covering 20+ towns. We continue to be featured online and in print in our media sponsor's publications, CT Parent and MyKidsFan.com. EnvisionFest is promoting the tour as well. We've sent out email 9 blasts to a total of 19,143 addresses since July. We've sent out 2 media releases, and continuously promoted the tour in more Facebook and Twitter posts than we can count. We have the tour listed in numerous publications' calendars, in print and online.
Posters and postcards: Regrettably, the printer has not produced our posters and postcards within the timeframe we expected. They should be ready early next week.
