A few people have asked what would be the best approach in fundraising for a race, here's a letter to copy and paste, and fill in, to send to your family, friends, co-workers, church, etc.
As you know, I'll be racing (insert your race and date of the race here) this summer. I've decided to do it to race support for the Hansel Family's Adoption.

It means the world to us that you would take time to do this in honor of our adoption. We don't take it lightly. And would love to know what race you plan on doing to raise money for our adoption so we can be your biggest fans. Believe me, we'll be cheering the loudest.
