Darby Creek Trail Run presented by FLIP
EVENT DATE: Jul 13, 2013
FLIP (fight, live, inspire, prevent) is a movement dedicated to making an impact by increasing cancer prevention awareness, reinforcing education and inspiring action. The Darby Creek Trail Run is designed to inspire you and to help you inspire others! Team registration allows you to easily recruit runners or walkers that you want inspire. Think of the impact YOU can make if you invite just one person who you want to inspire... now imagine over 200 runners/walkers inspiring one another and bringing just one more person to join the movement! FLIP’s 2012 trail run was voted, “most inspiring and beautiful run in America” – my mom.
We’ve poured our passion into this run to ensure every aspect of the event inspires!
First, register yourself to run or walk. (5K or 10K)
Then, start a team on our crowdise site...
The team page offers you an interactive way to share your team and individual story. Why do you run? Who do you want to inspire? Why do you want to prevent cancer? Who do you want to fight cancer for? Share your story and INSPIRE! The page also provides you an easy way to raise money to support our cancer prevention efforts so we can reach even more people. There’s no minimum amount required… just set a goal you are comfortable with!
Team prizes awarded based on several “most inspiring” categories. Our goal is to encourage you to inspire as many people as possible with your personal story and to have a lot of fun doing it! (Here are a few categories: most team members; most inspiring team page; highest fundraisers; and we are bringing back the costume competition).
Last year we gave away over $3,000 in prizes, including: vacation packages; new bike gift card; restaurant gift certificates; and sports tickets. (Not bad for our first event!)
When it comes to cancer, we’re all in it together. And while we continue racing for a cure, unfortunately almost all of us will still have to watch a loved one fight the disease, and nearly half will face the ugly battle ourselves. With odds like that, prevention is just too important to ignore. That’s why we’re fighting every day to raise awareness, educate communities, inspire action and organize lifestyle changing events – like this! – that can help more of us avoid this painful disease all together.
Prevention is powerful. But we need your help. Here’s your chance to make a big impact… the best thing you can do is to gather some friends and build a race team! Train together. Share your stories to inspire others. Then make all that hard work count: go out to your neighbors, your co-workers, your family, your friends and ask for pledges to support you in the prevention race.
At FLIP, we’ve already reached over 1,000 people in Columbus through pure work, sweat and volunteer time alone. But with your support, we’re building a team that is full-time dedicated to taking the cancer prevention message exponentially further. Your donations will help us:
1. Enhance our site to deliver valuable research and easy, actionable prevention tips
2. Offer fun and active events to engage the local community in the FLIP movement
3. Build prevention programs that will inspire action and help you measure results
4. Launch viral campaigns to get the word out and educate even more people on what they can do to get ahead of cancer
Small changes can save lives. Together, we’ll change more.
