The Pack ambassador program
The Pack is a select group of animal advocates who are also passionate about sports such as running, cycling, mountain biking, cyclocross, and triathlon. Most importantly, they are champions for animals. This group of like-minded individuals represents our organization and our mission to increase awareness for animal rescue.
With support from Rescue Project, Pack members inspire others to foster, adopt, volunteer; and, share their enthusiasm for animal rescue through their lifestyle. Pack members are affiliated with local rescue organizations and can also be found representing Rescue Project at local events such as group rides and runs, races, and volunteering at their local shelter.
There are three ways to be involved with the Pack in 2019. Apply for one of the following using the application below before December 1. We will review applications and announce the 2019 Pack members sometime during early to mid-December:
Earn free running or cycling gear by fundraising
If you a runner, cyclist, or triathlete participating in an event next year and want to represent a worthy cause, we would love for you to choose Rescue Project as your charity next season. Funds raised are used to offset expenses of independent rescue groups during urgent medical situations, natural disasters, and more.
There are no minimum fundraising requirements, however, if you raise $150 we will send you a Rescue Project running singlet of your choice. If you raise $250 we will send you a Rescue Project cycling jersey of your choice. And, if you raise $500 we will send you a Rescue Project cycling kit (jersey and bib) or speedsuit of your choice. You will be setup with your own page through the PledgeReg.com fundraising platform. You’ll be able to customize your fundraising page and share it with your network of family, friends, and supporters.
team partnership with your local running, cycling, or triathlon team
If you are a local club or team and want to partner with Rescue Project while the team members continue to race in your team kit, this is the best option for you. As part of our team partnership program, all your team members will receive a standing 10% off all regular priced items from our website plus exclusive access to pre-sale (at cost) pricing on new designs (apparel and accessories for people and dogs) and occasional secret sales.
