Miami, FL February 25, 2016 – Project Athena, non-profit organization for women with medical or traumatic setbacks, has welcomed haku, event management platform, to their organization. This foundation is an inspirational gateway for women who have overcome difficult setbacks to achieve their adventurous dreams. Project Athena also welcomes fundraisers (Gods/Goddesses) to participate in their events, helping collect donations along the way for this cause. To keep all elements of their foundation comprehensible and well managed, Project Athena has chosen to use haku’s fundraising, registration and community insights features to enhance the organizer and member experience.
“We are very happy with our new haku fundraising pages. Everything from the simplistic design to the detailed features it provides, make it a good fit for us. We’re most excited about all the fundraising features it offers our participants. All of our adventures require a fundraising minimum and often times people are quickly daunted by the idea of fundraising such a large amount,” Melissa Merrill, marketing and events director for Project Athena, said. “We think that haku really streamlines this process for our participants. We’ve gotten some feedback from our Gods and Goddesses (fundraising participants) complimenting the daily status emails, the easy accessibility from mobile devices and they are absolutely loving the campaign features that help them reach out to their friends and families.”
This year, Project Athena has transitioned all their events to the haku platform and will kick off the year with the San Diego Harbor to Harbor Adventure in April. This event is a two-day, 50-mile urban hiking adventure from Oceanside Harbor to San Diego Harbor. Registrations are now open.
“We are always excited to get our adventures underway and this year we are looking forward to launching our newest adventure, the Santa Barbara Intro to Adventure Race, a 24-hour, non-competitive race through the costal and mountain terrain of Santa Barbara. This will be our 6th adventure since we started in 2009. We are also so enthusiastic to see what this year has in store for us, participant wise, because last year we had the highest numbers of Athenas (survivors) and Gods and Goddesses yet! We’re hoping we can top those numbers again this year!” Melissa also added.
