Every step counts as you run or walk closer to the finish line and closer to your goal. But did you know your steps can help someone else reach their goal? Maybe their goal is to extend their life a little longer as science searches for a cure for their disease. Maybe their goal is to be a participant in a 5K despite their disability. Or maybe their goal is to have a safe shelter for their children, free from physical and emotional abuse.
Your steps can help others! Please consider running or walking your 2019 America’s Finest City Half Marathon or 5K on behalf of the Official Charities. With very little extra effort, you can reach your goal and at the same time make a huge difference in someone else’s life. Ask your friends and family to join you in your efforts by donating in your name to this very important group of charitable organizations. It's very easy to do and oh so rewarding. The money you raise will go directly to the official marathon charity of your choice. If you choose to become a fundraiser, you can set up your own website where you can post updates on your training and post pictures! You can even send messages to everyone on your email list asking them to support you and your charity.
All the Official Charities will be represented along the course cheering you on and lending support and guidance to participants. Become a fundraiser and feel good about helping those who cannot run alongside you.
