Contacting a Professional

The phone call went well. It was very insightful. I feel like I have a way better understanding of how to do this. Some of the stressors I experienced was that the person was not going to take me seriously. Another stressor was that I was going to mess up saying something weird or forget to say something. Some new understandings are places that this event can be hosted. I also better understand the way this can advertised. This helped my confidence in making phone calls and having other business like interactions. A new insight I have is that this could be more like an obstacle course rather than a run.

Findings to Research

We would need to contact places that are big enough and willing to host our event. We would also have advertise our event. This event would be open to the public because we could collect more revenue for charity. I am still undecided on what charity to donate to. The only obstacle I have decided on is a bounce house obstacle course. I am also not sure how long to make it. I depends where we host it.
My idea is changing because it is becom more broad. I have learned it is hard to influence the community. I have change my topic because I relized my passion is more broad then just basketball. I have grown as a researcher by learning the having starter questions helps research.
Inquiry question: Where can I host this event?

Fun Run?!

A goal I have to pursue my passion of sports is to have a fun run. I am going to do this to promote health. What I would like to do as my final project is a fun run with lots of different sports related activities incorporated into the run.

Inquire questions for further reference:
1. Where could we do this?
2. Should we open it to the public or make it just for the school?
3. Where could we donate our profit?
4. What sports activities should we do?
5. How long should we make it?

My Passion is Basketball

I fell in love with basketball when I went and watched my dad coach. He was an assistant coach at Franklin and Marshall college. I started to play basketball when I was four. I have continued to play and I started to play year round. I played for the JV team this year. I am hoping to play college some day.

My idea for using my passion in the community is to create a video on how to shoot a basketball. This could help in the community by teaching kids how to shoot better, therefore helping them get better at basketball.
