Charlotte, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/26/2013 -- When faced with hardship or change, what we make of those experiences reveal a lot about the content of our character. After her son was diagnosed with autism at age seven, Elizabeth Hobson, co-founded the Run Too Overcome. Sharing her story on air, and the issues faced with raising funds and awareness in a world dominated by large charitable organizations, “Marketing For Non Profits And The Run To Overcome” with Elizabeth Hobson aired on January 31, 2013, on blogtalkradio.com, and is now available on demand.
Hobson, is a financial planner with a specialty in helping families with autistic children. She is also Executive Director of Run Too Overcome, a Davidson, NC based charity, hosting their upcoming run event in the college town, March 9th. “I began working in sheltered workshops along side my mother at a very young age, and thought she had the nicest friends in the world! Both of my parents dedicated their careers to teaching children and adults with special needs, and they have changed the lives of the countless families they have served.” said Hobson.
“Through their service and success, I have found the passion to serve my community in the same way. I believe my son can be anything he sets his mind to, and will make sure the door is open for him, and others with similar differences, when they are ready to walk through it.”
marketing moxie* show host, Françoise Rose Jeanes said, "It’s hard to start a non profit, so for those looking for advice on doing that, especially in North Carolina, Elizabeth’s show will be very useful and worth listening to.”
“This is a slightly different show from the past marketing moxie*s, which generally focus on entrepreneurs and business tips,” added Jeanes. As a sponsor of Run Too Overcome, I was honored to have Elizabeth on the show. Of how Françoise’s company, Mobile Marketing Max, first started working with the Run To Overcome, “No one has ever said yes that you haven't asked! Reaching out to your surrounding community for support is something most of us have never done before.” said Hobson. “I just picked up the phone, called Fran, and she graciously provided her help.”
