EVENT DATE: Oct 16, 2011
The Nationwide Insurance Columbus Marathon and 1/2 Marathon is going to rally with our participants, volunteers and supporters in the community to raise $1 million for charity. This is the first time we have participated on Crowdrise and we are psyched!
There are more than 13.1 reasons for 1/2 marathoners and more than 26.2 reasons for full marathoners for participating in the Columbus Marathon & 1/2 Marathon and for raising money for your favorite charity on Crowdrise!
One really good reason is that for the rest of your life you will be able to say that you "did it" and you can say you did it for a cause. Whatever that cause is, it's YOUR cause.
Yes, it is an extreme challenge of completing a marathon or 1/2 marathon so just imagine the possibility of what you can accomplish with fundraising for your favorite charity.
The collective power of our 17,000+ participants and community will make for an awesome effort for this challenge.
You don't have to be a runner or walker to raise money for a charity. Our amazing volunteers can participate too by getting their volunteer efforts sponsored and tied into their favorite charity!
Throughout the years the Columbus Marathon and 1/2 Marathon has witnessed runners and walkers who train while overcoming major illness or who use the event as part of a lifestyle change to accomplish significant weight loss, among other odds. This is the same type of determination that will guarantee successful fundraising efforts.
So form your team now. Reach out to all of your friends, family, supporters, coworkers, neighbors, people you know, people you don't know and let's get this $1,000,000 effort started.
