BENEFITING: PACER NATION
EVENT DATE: Dec 01, 2015
The Pasadena Pacers is joining #GivingTuesday this year, a global day dedicated to people giving back, usually to their favorite non-profits! Our goal is to raise $12,000 by Tuesday, December 1 to build our expanded website and Pacer starter kit.
As many of you know, the Pasadena Pacers is growing thanks to your success stories and bringing in your friends to our free running club! Do you have friends who live farther away and wish they had a Pacer community to run with? Soon they can!
We want to expand this model to other communities who want to start their own running clubs, but in order to do that we are developing a comprehensive website and starter kits that will serve as a hub to share the Pacer model.
Through your support of this campaign, we will be able to raise the much needed funds to lay the foundation for this next phase of the Pacers.
The Pasadena Pacers is Southern California's largest, free and friendliest running club! We are dedicated to raising the health and spirits of our community through running. We provide extensive training for short and long distance running, coaching, volunteer and leadership opportunities.
While the Pacers began as a fitness initiative, we quickly realized how much people appreciate the social benefits of a club. Simply put, we are a group of people from different backgrounds who are drawn together by running. Think about it: When you leave your car wearing only your running gear, you shed the trappings that identify you with your “normal” life. In other words, the boundaries that can separate you from your fellow man are removed, creating a non-threatening environment where it is easy to get to know others. Many people who run with the Pacers make the comment, “This is the friendliest group of people!” And they are correct.
Do you LOVE the Pacers? Please support our campaign and help us spread the word!
