You're doing all the heavy lifting here, folks. The response to the DIP (Direct Impact Project) as we rally to gather 1,000,000 kids' bandages for the #NoahsBandageProject has been incredible, and we're only a few days into the drive. People are reporting shelves in their local markets and pharmacies being wiped out, and apology calls are already being made to the postal carriers in Kansas for all they're about to get hit with. Keep rallying friends and family, supporting your Housemates, and being generally as amazing as we knew you were all along. (On a personal note from your Minister of Magical Media: it's really, really difficult to post things to Instagram when your eyes keep watering up. Just saying.) #hogwartsrunningclub #hogwartsrunning #hogwartsrunners #somuchgood #onehrc #werunasone #virtualrun #virtualrunning #runforcharity #nonprofit #fanthropy #changetheworld #onemileatatime #randomtuesdayinc #geekoutgetfitdecreaseworldsuck #bandagedrive #directimpactproject
We're seeing it already: you've all gone a bit Professor Trelawney batty over the 2018 RTI Coffee Cup and the bandage drive for Noah's Bandage Project. But we know you're almost as eager to earn your House more points for the Hogwarts Cup, right? So how do they relate? Excellent question. Each has a goal for donations that they must reach to earn points. When a House reaches 100% of their goal, they will receive 20 points. Houses can then achieve bonus points by reaching stretch goals of 200%, 400%, 700% and 1000%. A maximum of 70 total points will be awarded for reaching 1000% of the established goal. Look how much you can accomplish in one drive! A million (plus) kids' bandages for NBP, 70 more points for your house in the cup standings, and...AND...a chance to claim the Coffee Cup away from our (dear, dear, beloved) friends over at @WhovianRunningClub, who claimed the glory last year! To action, witches and wizards! Time to do #somuchgood!
HOUSE PRIDE! Pre-orders are now being taken for our new line of running swing skirts and technikilts at @SparkleSkirts. Now you can bang out those miles, and gather glorious attention for your Hogwarts house! #onehrc #hogwartsrunningclub #hrc18gryffindor #hrc18ravenclaw #hrc18hufflepuff #hrc18slytherin #werunasone #geekgear #geekrunning http://ow.ly/XZEo50hnxDN
The first Direct Impact Project (DIP) Competition of 2018 is now OPEN! In 2017, all three RTI programs came together to donate several tons of coffee to the people of Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria via an inter-program competition that became known as the 'RTI Coffee Cup'. This year, all three RTI programs return to compete in the Direct Impact Competition, but since it is such a cool name, we’ve decided to keep calling it the 'Coffee Cup'...even when there’s no coffee being donated! CHARITY BENEFICIARY: Noah Wilson was diagnosed with cancer in April of 2014 (when he was only 6 years old), but never let it change his passion to help others. He always had a huge heart and was constantly looking for ways to help people. His love for others did not change even when he was facing a devastating diagnosis. Noah passed away in June of 2015, but not before starting his Bandage Project and making a huge difference in the world. In honor of Noah and his legacy, Noah’s Bandage Project continues, and will continue, to help kids all across the globe. RTI is pleased to announce that this year’s Coffee Cup Direct Impact Project will be supporting Noah’s Bandage Project by collecting bandages and sending them to a single collection point in Kansas. So, here are the details: DATES: 21 May to 11 June. See the details in the rules, but packages must be postmarked no later than 8 June, and received in Kansas no later than 11 June. ITEMS TO BE DONATED: Bandages/Band-Aids/”Boo-Boo Strips”/”Plasters” QUANTITY: 100 Bandages = 1 Point (a 20-qty box, the most common size, will be worth 0.2 pts) SPECS: Bandages must be FUN. Cartoons, superheroes, & other fun kid-friendly imagery is preferred, but multi-color bandages are acceptable. (Not acceptable: Brown, White, Tan or other boring bandages.) RTI GOAL: 1,000,000 kid-cool bandages! Complete rules, details, and shipping address are in the DIP official PDF: http://ow.ly/O5eT50hntOT #somuchgood #hogwartsrunningclub #onehrc #werunasone #nonprofit #fanthropy #changetheworld #onemileatatime #randomtuesdayinc #geekoutgetfitdecreaseworldsuck
Your house elves in action! Keep an eye to the skies for the owls delivering your #forgotten5k Remembrall medals!
The house elves are on the job! Keep an eye on the horizon for your owls, because the #forgotten5k medals are being packed, prepared, and posted today! The Bosswitch is personally overseeing the process, and has deemed what she observes to be acceptable. Who knows — maybe one of the elves will earn their freedom today! Again, immense thanks to the thousands of you who took on the challenge, ran the miles, shared in the fun, and helped support @hispanic_federation in the effort. We are #oneHRC, but we are also family — and this run was all about the #poweroffamily! #hogwartsrunningclub #werunasone #immigrantswegetthejobdone #medals #virtualrun #runforcharity
Never, ever, ever one to be upstaged, @njhartstone took on the Radlett Rotary fun run Five Fields 5k this month, and showed all in attendance her love for HRC, and specifically, her Gryffindor House! Give a ROAR for Nat! #hogwartsrunningclub #onehrc #werunasone #gryffindor #onepride #memberoftheweek #virtualrun #hrccommunity
Exceptional work, students! With your passion to support the #PowerofFamily during our Forgotten 5K, we logged over 5,400 registrations, and nearly 500 shirts to commemorate the run. That's going to do amazing things for Hispanic Federation and the Immigrants: We Get the Job Done Coalition! If your remembrall was on the blink, and you happened to forget the event (what irony, eh?), it's okay -- remember that we close each season with the Time Turner event, and you'll have a change to spin back and re-register for any that you missed. Proceeds will still go to that race's charity partner! #immigrantswegetthejobdone #onehrc #hogwartsrunningclub #keepfamiliestogether #hispanicfederation #forgotten5k #werunasone #somuchgood #virtualrun #charityrun #fundraising
