(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) Atlanta, GA - December 5, 2011 - The economy may be in the tank, but that hasn’t stopped millions of people from sponsoring friends in fundraising runs, walks, rides and a growing assortment of alternative events.

Harnessing the power of such peer-to-peer fundraising progams will be the focus of the Run Walk Ride Fundraising Conference when it convenes in Atlanta on March 6 & 7, 2012. Details on the world’s leading “thon” fundraising information source and the conference are available at www.runwalkride.com or by calling (914) 921-3914.

Conference highlights include:

Komen Race for the Cure, the Heart Walk and Bike MS.   (In 2010, more than 11.3 million people raised over $1.65 billion in the top thirty programs.)

  •  A keynote panel discussion of emerging alternative events such as climbing down office buildings, mud runs, motorcycle “poker runs”, stair climbs and dog walks

  •  Expert presentations on fundraising tactics, sponsorship sales, mobile marketing and other hot topics
