Eddie Runs 52 Races Per Year For Needy Children
Organized by: Eddie Robles
In September of 2014, in an effort to diversify my fitness activities, I began running races. A year and 4 months have gone by and I am proud to share that now I have completed 69 races since then. The most significant races during that time were the 2014 & 2015 Turkey Trot 5 mile runs where I joined Team COCI (Cherish Our Children International) to raise funds for underprivileged children. With the help of all of you, I was able to raise $1,800 in 2014 & $1,961 in 2015 which both were third most of all participants in those races. This year, I am fundraising a little differently. I am committed to running 52 races per year anywhere in the USA and I am raising money to fund my travel & racing expenses as well as to raise money for Team COCI. 75% of the funds I raise will go towards Team COCI (Cherish Our Children International) and 25% for my traveling and racing expenses. Funds will be given to Team COCI at the annual Turkey Trot 5 mile race which will be on Thanksgiving Day November 24, 2016. Please consider supporting me and my goal as well as contributing and donating to this amazing cause that helps underpriviledged children with food, shelter, clothing and educational opportunities.
