BENEFITING: METROPOLITAN RICHMOND SPORTS BACKERS INC
EVENT DATE: Apr 28, 2017
Every runner runs for a different reason or cause: to remember/forget, for fun, to release stress, or health reasons – lose weight. There are a lot of benefits as a direct result of running. Running can make you happier, sharper as you age, reduce the risk of cancer, and add years to your life. The issue - most people are not introduced to this activity as an organized sport early in life other than recess in middle school, or athletics and p.e. in high school. Solution – introduce running to all kids not only at school but also whilst outside of school. On April 28-29, 2017, I will run an overnight trail-running-relay with seven of my awesome teammates through Richmond at Pocahontas State Park to support Sports Backers Kids Run RVA. This awesome program helps children train for and run their first road race, provide running shoes for those in need, establish run clubs at local schools, and provide school bus transportation to running events. Please help me in raising money for this awesome cause. Giving is true having.—C.H. Spurgeon.
