Join fellow community members and run 1 mile, every hour, for 24 hours. Sound impossible? Nah...you've got this. You can even walk it and still have plenty of time for a short nap, a bite to eat, and a chance to binge watch some more NETFLIX.
What: a 24-hour endurance event comprised of running one mile each hour for the entire period
When: beginning anytime on Saturday, May 30th, and continuing for 24 hours (start at midnight, 6am or anytime on that Saturday)
Where: your home, your neighborhood, town park, indoors on a treadmill
Who: anyone, all ages
Why: to raise awareness and fund for the programs that support the mental health of our community members
How: run one mile each hour for 24 hours straight
Beneficiaries: Funds raised in this fundraiser will go to support behavioral health services in our community, including teletherapy, assisting individuals with accessing services, education and outreach to prevent suicide and reduce the stigma associated with mental illness, and mental health supports for students in our schools
You can run it alone, or join a team and run it as a relay--teams can be as big as you'd like--4 people could each run 6 hours, or 8 people could each run 3 hours.
Every hour, you will commit to run one mile. You can record your run on any of the popular running aps, such as Strava, MapMyRun, Nike Run Club, or your Apple Watch. Take a selfie of you when you finish your run and send it in to us or post it to your own social media account.
You can also sponsor an hour or more! For a $100 donation by an individual, family or business, you will be an official mile sponsor. We will highlight your sponsorship during your hour on social media and recognize you in our post-event press releases.
