nonprofits@everydayhero.com.au | blackbaud.com.au June 2019 1 C U S TO M E R S P OT L I G H T Running Around Everest For over five decades the Himalayan Trust Foundation has been working with friends and partners in Nepal to reduce poverty and strengthen communities in the Everest region. The Campaign The Himalayan Trust Summit Challenge was the first major online fundraising campaign for the Himalayan Trust foundation. The challenge encourages participants to climb, walk or ride 8848m (the height of Mount Everest) to help raise funds for remote mountain communities in Nepal. This campaign was inspired by a group of supporters who ran a similar event with a peer-to-peer fundraising page on Everydayhero. This year, the foundation has decided to run the event as an organisation. The Partnership For this campaign, Everydayhero provided a custom-built website, specifically tailored to the Himalayan Trust Foundation's event goals. The custom website features Everydayhero's latest addition to the manual fitness tracker application – Elevation. This features enables fitness data logged on individual fundraising pages to be pulled through to the goal tracker, allowing participants to see their efforts collectively and individually on a leaderboard to enhance friendly competition. CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT Himalayan Trust Foundation For us, it's definitely been worth making the investment to build a custom campaign website with Everydayhero. We plan on running this event every year so, ensuring that we have a model that's user-friendy was very important to us. - Linda Broom, Public Engagement Manager at the Himalayan Trust Foundation
