HELP REMEMBER THE VICTIMS OF THE SANDY HOOK ELEMENTARY SHOOTING by purchasing a shirt and then running (optional) with us in the Keybank Vermont City Marathon!
If you buy one of our great wicking running\exercise t-shirts ($26) seen here or donate on this crowdrise site, half of the profits ($16 total profit each shirt) will go to the victim's families of this tragedy and the other half will go to the Vt. Police Canine Association to help buy 40 new k-9 ballistic vests (ours are now outdated and not safe). You will get a great workout shirt, be donating to a local non-profit, and will be doing your part to help the families of this awful tragedy.
You can then wear your shirt and run or support us in the Keybank Vermont City Marathon (to register go to Keybank Vermont City Marathon) and feel great about giving to these 2 great causes!
The Vermont Police K-9 Association is a 501(c) non-profit, Go to www.vtk9.com to order your shirt or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. A large group is running together wearing these lime green t-shirts to stand out in the crowd of thousands and bring attention to these causes. For each mile that we run we will verbally announce in our running group a new victim's name to honor each victim and to give us added motivation to continue to run.
All you have to do is buy a shirt, and then either run or show up to support if you want. If you want to be part of a relay team you can register on the Keybank Vermont City Marathon website. Registration for the relay teams (2-5 runners per relay) is due January 31 and is done in a lottery system. There is no deadline for the full marathon registration. Go to the Keybank Vermont City Marathon website for registration information. Hope to see you there!
