Helping Boston Heal, One Mile at a Time.
(Please click "See More" for all of the ways you can help and be Boston Strong!)
Like all of you, we at Twin Cities In Motion have paused countless times to think about Boston, with our thoughts and condolences for the Boston Marathon bombing victims always top of mind. Our shock and disbelief quickly progressed to an overwhelming desire to help heal our running community.
Our resolve is to keep running. Strong. Boston Strong. And, to aid the Boston community with a sizeable financial donation. In addition to TCM's contribution to the victims and their families, we have received many requests from runners asking how they could partner with us and help. Here's how you can!
1) RUN THE MEDTRONIC TC 1 MILE MAY 9
We have chosen to dedicate our next TCM event – the Medtronic TC 1 Mile– to the Boston community and contribute our financial support as well. TCM will donate 10% of each Medtronic TC 1 Mile registration fee to the victims of the Boston Marathon attacks. In addition, Twin Cities In Motion will match those contributions in an effort to raise $10,000 total. To register for the Medtronic TC 1 Mile, click here.
2) MAKE A ONE-TIME DONATION
Any amount helps! Make a gift to Twin Cities In Motion (a non-profit corporation) via this page. All contributions Twin Cities In Motion receives from the TCM Runs For Boston fundraiser here will be passed on to a worthy charity helping those directly affected by the tragic events in Boston.
3) RUN ANY TCM EVENT IN 2013 & RAISE FUNDS
Through this page, TCM Runs For Boston, you can "Join Our Team" and run the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon or any other event we offer, while raising money for the Boston victims and their families. Join the team by clicking "Create Your Fundraiser" on the right side of this page, and go to www.tcmevents.org/events to register for any Twin Cities In Motion event. Your friends and family can then make contributions to the Boston efforts online via Crowdrise, through Twin Cities In Motion.
