Anticipated Reach:  The event will be widely promoted throughout the Kentucky Annual Conference jurisdiction, with a specific focus on the Bowling Green/Warren County area. Our publicity campaign will include a variety of print and web advertising mediums.  We will work closely with the KAC Communications Department in developing a webpage and promotional items.
 
- Flyers, Emails, and Internet Marketing Campaign – 5,000 people
 
 
Response Rate:  The Run for the Nets 5k is expecting a minimum response rate of 3-4%, from the publicity campaign, leading to an approximate participant base of 150-200.

  • Boosts employee morale, productivity, and loyalty – The Walker Information study of 1,273 U.S. employees found that those with favorable impressions of company-sponsored philanthropy programs are five times more likely to stay with their employer.

 IMAGINE NO MALARIA EMPOWERING AFRICAN COMMUNITIES

 
Imagine No Malaria saves lives by working against malaria through prevention, treatment, education, and communications. The organization operates as an arm of the United Methodist Church and currently provides services to 16 countries in Africa. How can we help to eliminate deaths from a disease that so many millions of people? Read below to see how your support is used -
 
  • Prevention:  Fighting the disease locally by using bed nets, providing access to diagnostic tests and medicine; draining standing water; and improving sanitation.
     
  • Treatment:  Improving infrastructure by making sure the hundreds of churches, schools, hospitals and clinics operated by The United Methodist Church in Africa have the diagnostic tests and treatment needed to save lives.
     
  • Education:  Training thousands of local people in African communities to teach their communities about avoiding malaria. For example, in Sierra Leone, Angola, Zimbabwe, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, workers went door-to-door to deliver bed nets, installed them in homes, and taught people how to properly use and care for the nets.
     
  • Communications:  And finally, your support helps upgrade communications networks throughout the continent. Building new radio stations and providing hand-crank and solar-powered radios will ensure we are reaching great numbers of people with life-saving information about malaria.
