What did Students Run LA need?

James helped Students Run LA engage their community with an email series that gets their message across in a clear and compelling way.

Why is this project important?

Each year, SRLA must raise $1.3MM to meet operational expenses. More than 90% goes directly to the program. As some of our institutional funders have changed direction, we need to grow our capacity from the ground up. This campaign and focus will help us raise the money we need to support the more than 3,000 students in SRLA on their journey to the Marathon finish line.

This project will save us $3,002, allowing us to support nearly 10 students in our program this season.

What did they have to say?

James is an amazing writer! At Students Run LA, we asked him to put together an email campaign to engage and encourage our alumni runners to give back to the organization. His creativity really shone through. He suggested so many great subject lines for a Valentine's Day themed email that we re-purposed them for our social media posts - they were too good not to use. He really listened to the style and context of what we were looking for and created emails that were ready to send. James was a consummate professional in clearly communicating with me and meeting all deadlines. I enthusiastically recommend James for your next writing / copy project.

Students Run LA is a phenomenal organisation who were a pleasure to work with. Their commitment to the students and mentors is truly inspiring and I really enjoyed being able to assist them with their email marketing campaign. Christine was a pleasure to work with, she was clear in her communication, provided helpful feedback on the email copy which made the writing process much smoother.

I can't speak highly enough of this organisation and as a passionate runner myself, I hope to be able to get down to LA to see their work in action in person and hopefully run with them!
