The Gunston Soccer 5k race organizers approached us to sponsor the race by putting together a website for their 2nd annual fun run. Of course, we were happy to help out! The race is an important fundraiser for the Gunston Soccer Club, a youth soccer league in Alexandria, VA. Gunston has over 1,400 youth registered for its programs. They are supported by many volunteers, a dedicated board of directors, and an experienced coaching staff.
Due to the very limited timeline to get the website up early enough to be effective, the whole Ironistic team came together to customize a WordPress event theme for Gunston in just a couple days. We were able to put together a great looking website with all of the functionality that Gunston needed very quickly. The launch of the new website led to an immediate increase in the rate of registration and also quickly led to increased sponsorship of the race. To go along with the new website, we also created a successful race t-shirt design campaign run through Facebook using WooBox. The website has been very well received by the Gunston Soccer Club community and will certainly help them meet their fundraising goals.
