IR4 Guidelines

I RUN 4 (IR4) GROUP GUIDELINES

  • We cannot support any group, business, or organization that does not have 501(c)(3) status.
  • Organizations seeking support from IR4 must submit a letter to Vice President Amy Courts (Amy@whoirun4.com) and cc the Founder/Executive Director Tim Boyle (Tim@whoirun4.com). The letter must contain the charity name, its web address, and a point of contact for said charity. If it is approved by Amy and Tim, it will then be forwarded to the Board of Directors for approval.
  • We do not allow posting of outside links within the group (anything that you click and takes you off of the IR4 page). This includes, but not limited to; fundraisers, contests, votes, personal pages. IR4 reserves the right to delete any post that violates this policy without warning or notification.
  • We do not allow asking for gifts, cards, or other such items within the group.
  • Posting for fundraisers on the group page is not allowed unless by a member of IR4’s administrative staff. The only fundraisers that will be posted on the group page will be official IR4 sanctioned events or events benefiting the Special Olympics, Make A Wish Foundation, and Ainsley’s Angels of America  NO EXCEPTIONS.
  • The use of any picture within the IR4 group page or standard page is STRICTLY PROHIBITED without the written consent of IR4 AND PARENT! (Pictures sent via private messages between parent and runner, as well as tagged pictures, do not fall under this guideline as many will send them pictures for t-shirts)
  • The use of the trademarked IR4 logo is prohibited without the written consent of Tim Boyle. Personal/Homemade use is also acceptable (Having it as your facebook/twitter profile picture or banner is acceptable as well as products purchased from the authorized vendors)
  • Vendors wishing to sell IR4 merchandise must seek written permission from Amy Courts.

MATCHING

  • One runner will be matched to one child or adult with special needs.
  • ONLY matches made by IR4 staff will be honored within the group. No outside matching will be allowed.
  • Matches will be made according to the waiting list of runners. NO EXCEPTIONS!

    • Hate speech
    • Pornographic
    • Bullying
    • Violent in nature
    • Containing the “R” word regardless of its intended use
    • Advertisements for products or services not pertaining to IR4
    • THERE WILL BE ZERO TOLERANCE FOR THIS BEHAVIOR! PEOPLE VIOLATING THESE GUIDELINES WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE GROUP AND THEIR MATCH REASSIGNED TO ANOTHER RUNNER.

 

FOR RUNNERS (AND OTHER ATHLETES)

  • Posting is how we inspire our buddy (coach) so please post a minimum of three (3) times per week whether you have been able to run or not (so they know you are still involved). Please be sure to tag the parent in the post so they can easily find it on the newsfeed. This is only fair to the children and parents.
  • Please feel free to actively participate in other posts within the group, offer encouragement and advice.
  • We ask that runners use modesty when posting pictures of themselves. We understand each person uses different attire while running but please keep in mind some pictures may not be appropriate for our younger members. Sports bras and shorts are acceptable.

FOR PARENTS

  • Please “like” and/or comment on the posts you are tagged in so the runner knows their posts are being viewed by you and your child.
  • Please feel free to actively participate in other posts within the group, offer encouragement and advice.

CONCERNS

  • If you have concerns please direct them to Lesley Larson.
  • If there is an issue with your runner or buddy’s parent please try to resolve the issue first. Members not posting will be given a grace period of one (1) week (seven days) to post. This will allow any member ample time to post in the event of exigent circumstances.
  • If the matter is still unresolved after a period of one (1) week (seven days), please contact Lesley Larson with your complaints. Lesley will then send out a private message to the noncompliant party, who will then have 24 hours to respond (messages marked read and not answered may be considered voluntary dismissal from the group).
