Planning for Pitch Day

     To present our work, we will use a Keynote. Some things that could be in the Keynote are, where it will be held, how it is good for the community, different activities that we could do and how to do them. We would add pictures to the keynote so it doesn't look boring and so that people have a better understanding of what we are talking about.

Contacting a Professional

     My phone call went very well. I learned a lot of things like how to set up a good obstacle course and how to get people to come. Another thing that I learned is that if nobody shows up, it is not a failure. Some of the stressors of this process are, how I will do something, if I'm doing it right, or if something is good enough. This process helped me grow because now I am more experienced and brave. I now have a lot more insight on my process and I am now smarter than I was before.

Findings Through Research

     In order to find a place to have the obsticle course, we need to contact places that we could possibly hold our event to see if they allow us.  To get people to come, we can post something on social media or hand out informative papers to get people to come. We could make it fun by including sports like football, basketball and baseball. To donate, we have to contact a charity and see how they want to accept the money that you earned. We will need to charge people a price that is not to high so people want to come but not too little so we don't make any money for a charity.
     Our idea of a fun run has changed into an obsticle course because people would like an obsticle course more than a fun run. It would also be easier to set up. Something that I learned from my research is, setting something up like this is a lot of work.

Fun Run?!

     A goal I have to help the schools and persue my passion of sports is to create a fun run. This fun run will promote health and we will donate the profit to charity to help those in need. The end goal for this would be to have a "fun run" and have a pretty good turnout so be make a big profit to give to charity to help the people that are in need.
Open ended question for myself:
1: How do we get an area to do this?
2: How do we get people to come?
3: How do we make it fun?
4: How do we donate money to charity?
5: How much do we charge people?

My Passion

     One of my passions that I have is playing sports. I started playing sports when I was a little kid. I currently play baseball for the school team. I like to watch sports on TV in my free time and when I have a chance, I like to go to games. I have been to a bunch of Orioles games and a couple Steelers games. I also like to go to a park with friends and play football or basketball just to have fun.
     A thing that I could do in the community is try to collect money from a fundraiser or something and donate my earning to a charity that involves sports like, Special Olympics or other charities. I think that this would be a good thing for me to do because I am combining my passion and a good cause to do something really great for the community.
