Gopher State Events Charity: Water Campaign

Charity Water Campaign Many of us have no idea what it's like to be thirsty. Many people around the world don't have that luxury. Every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. But it doesn't have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.

We at Gopher State Events started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world. Please donate to our campaign -- anything you can give is a huge help. 100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects, and when they're complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.

What Others Have Said

I have been using Gopher State Events (formerly MyVIRA) for several years and they continue to enhance their services and provide great service. The addition of chip timing is fantastic. The accuracy, efficiency and calmness of the finishing area and result tabulation process with the chip timing was so stress free. Their investment into this technology only reinforces their commitment to provide timing and race management service second to none.

Connecting Fitness Through Teams

Connected Fitness The fitness world is very much about connecting folks socially. Giving them a chance to register for a race together and "connect" their results is one way to facilitate that. Along with non-competitive ways to dovetail on the team component, from a results standpoint, we provide several options. Teams could be scored by:

  • Combined Time (when a fixed number of participants are on each team);
  • Average Time (when you allow a range of numbers of participants on each "You must have at least 3 team members.");
  • Team Score (adding up the individual places for the first x team members as is done in cross-country running);
  • Team Points (assigning a maximum number of points for first place and then going down from there as is done in Nordic Sking);

No Timing Necessary?

Gopher ..."just for fun" raise money for a good cause...little emphasis on times, places and awards?

We will bring a clock, a camera, and a friendly face. Pix online later that day FOR FREE DOWNLOAD with the clock in the background. No timing equipment, no chips, no data entry, and far less cost.

Our Timing System...

RFID Timing RFID (chip) Timing: Ultra - The ultimate rifd timing/chip timing system. We chose the Ultra system because it is one of the leading technologies in RFID timing and chip timing. It allows us the option of being able to source UHF tags from anywhere, meaning we keep our prices competitive with rfid timing or chip timing providers without compromising quality.
