EVENT DATE: Apr 27, 2014
We are planning an amazing weekend as you Run to Remember in the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon on April 27, 2014! When you join thousands of other runners on that start line, you are helping sustain the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum. You may not realize this, but our national treasure does not receive annual appropriations from the city, state or federal governments. Your participation helps maintain one of the most important sites on American soil.
That’s why we need your help with Tied to Our Mission. We are asking you to get your friends, family, co-workers and fan club to support you with a contribution of $1 or $2 for every mile you run. If 100% of the 25,000 runners each raised just $15, we could increase our endowment by an additional $375,000 a year. Imagine your impact in just three years... we could add another $1 million! This is how to ensure the perpetual wellbeing of the Memorial & Museum and its Marathon.
In 2014, we are aiming for 100% participation. Will you help us?
Last year, in our fourth year of Tied to Our Mission, we had more than 600 people participate and we raised more than $53,000. We believe this fifth year of Tied to Our Mission can be revolutionary.
Join us in raising money for every mile you run. By doing that, you will earn a pair of the 2014 OKC Memorial Marathon green shoe laces provided by New Balance. From now through race day, you will see a groundswell built around Tied to Our Mission and you will not want to be left out.
You clearly understand the lessons we teach here by remembering the 168 people who were killed, honoring those who survived and celebrating those changed forever. Today, Oklahoma City stands as a symbol of hope and resilience to people around the world. Rebuilding our city has been a marathon of its own and you are playing a major role in making sure our story is told forever. Thank you.
