So if you’re tired of Sarah Mclachlan ruining your day, you need to get active in helping out animal adoption groups. The biggest help you can do is to adopt an animal and give it good home, but maybe you can’t do that. You can just give them money, but unless you got a few Benjamins laying around shelters need a lot of help to maintain their facilities and provide veterinary care to pets and even more help for pets that have come in ill or abused. Adoption centers need to pay for a plethora of pet supplies like food, litter, leashes, and medicine. If you want to get involved with helping your local pet shelter or adoption group the first thing would be to contact them and see what needs they have. Maybe you could run a pet food drive in your neighborhood or work place. You could also help organize an adoption event at a local fair or pet store. If you find they just need some serious fundraising, you can run one online through social media like facebook. When you really want to roll your sleeves up, hold a charity dog wash and the proceeds can go to the shelter. There are tons of options to help pets find great homes and help out those who take care of them while they are waiting.
I know what you’re thinking, so where do tees fit into this? The easiest thing would be to sell fun and adorable pet-themed shirts to raise money. You could also give them out as thank you gift to individuals who donate money or pet food. Want some ideas for pet tees? Here you go! If you’re ready to get involved, visit the ASPCA and find your local shelter.
As fall approaches, many charity organizations hold fundraiser 5K’s to raise money for various causes. This is a great opportunity to get some outdoor activity in your life before we all start hibernating on the couch. 5K is a reasonable distance that even a beginning runner can work their way up to in several weeks. Along with the kick-off to fall sports, charity team running shirts are a popular order this time of year. It’s not because we want more customers, but we want to encourage more people to get involved with charity 5K’s. It will make you feel good and it will feel even better donating or raising money for a good cause.
But how do you get there? For those of use you aren’t at the peak of fitness we may need a little help, but Rush Order Tees has done the research for your. We’ve found some of the best tips and programs to help you get off the couch and get to doing good.
One of the premier sources for running tips and advice has developed a six week training program for beginners. You can access the workout calendar for $19.99, but the plan looks pretty direct and easy to follow. It centers on working your way up to four miles which will make the 3.1 miles even easier, plus is schedules in days of rest to make sure you don’t overdo it.
The Mayo Clinic
This seven week program was designed by Olympian Jeff Galloway. This plan takes on more of a circuit training approach where you alternate running and walking in order to build your way up to running greater lengths every week. It also switches up days of running and walking so you can keep up the pace, but not tire out. This training schedule requires five to six days of working out. You can rest one day, but you can choose a light walk or a second day of rest.
If you are looking for something less structured and just filled with good advice, check out “How to Track for Your First 5K” on Active.com. This article discusses basic concepts like finding a comfortable pace, setting goals and rewards, plus how to just be confident in being our own runner. The author encourages beginners to not compare themselves to other runners, because that is one of the biggest discouragement.
