BENEFITING: One Fund Boston
EVENT DATE: Sep 06, 2013
Members of our team were affected by the tragic events of the Boston Marathon in different ways. Some of us have lived there before, just blocks from Copley Square. Many of us had friends running the race. One of us had run it just the previous year, with family waiting near the finish near the spots where three people lost their lives and hundreds were injured. Boston is close to our hearts with every run we take in our hill covered city of Asheville, and we want to use these 200 miles of road we have set out to run to have a greater purpose.
This is where we need the help of our friends and family! We would like to use our Blue Ridge Relay team filled with a wonderful group of women, to fundraise for the victims of the bombings. 90% of what we fundraise is going to The One Fund, 10% will go to cover our race costs, up to $580. (After $580, 100% will go to the One Fund.)
Thanks for helping us give back to the running community and victims of the Boston Marathon!
