Summer will be here sooner than you think and so will your charity walk! Whether you’re sponsoring the event or just have a simple booth, your company can make a huge impact with the right promotional product giveaways.

Need a few ideas? You’re in the right place! Here are a few charity walk promo items to keep your business top of mind:

1. Water Bottles

It doesn’t matter if you host your charity walk during winter or summer – attendees will get quite hot and thirsty! That’s why a customized water bottle with your brand name and logo is such a practical promo item. Not only will they be thankful for it during the marathon, but they can also use it after the event.

Make sure the water bottles are made from high-quality non-BPA plastic and feature a simple and ergonomic design with a flip-top lid.

2. T-shirts & Windbreakers

Personalized tees are one of the best charity walk promo items, and with good reason. For starters, they're a reminder of the event, so attendees can promote the cause they support. Moreover, people are likely to wear them even after the marathon, helping you advertise your business. Imagine having a walking billboard with your name and logo that enables prospects to learn about your brand and its values. If that wasn’t enough incentive, 81% - 95% of consumers recall the advertiser who gave them a promotional shirt.

The same goes for windbreakers. Outerwear is the number one promo product for influencing the opinions of consumers ages 18 - 44. So if you're hosting or sponsoring a charity walk during the autumn or spring make sure to offer these promo items to the attendees.

3. Hats & Visors

Headwear is essential when running under the bright and scorching summer sun. Giving away branded hats or visors shows participants you really care about them (and you’ve thought of everything), and it's a great opportunity to gain more exposure for your company.

In fact, throughout its lifetime a promotional cap or visor will receive 3,136 impressions. That’s a lot of eyes on your brand!

4. Sunglasses

Branded sunglasses are another excellent way to offer protection to your charity walk’s attendees and promote your brand at the same time. Make sure they're stylish and fashionable enough so people wear them in their day-to-day life, too. You can even take it to the next level and increase their utility by opting for polarized sunglasses that reduce glare and increase clarity. Remember, the more useful and attractive a promo item is, the more likely people will keep it.


Because they're so versatile, people will use your tote bag long after the event is over. Whether it’s for shopping, going to the beach, or just as a fashion accessory, a branded tote bag you give away at a charity walk promotes your business year round. Promotional bags generate over 5,700 impressions, more than any other promo product in the US.



Charity walk promo items are an excellent marketing and branding tool. Hopefully, this list provides some inspiration for fun and convenient items participants will use during and after the event.
