Fun, fitness and fund-raising all come together in one popular event every spring in Clintonville: The CRC's Ring Around the Roses Memorial Day 5K Walk-Run.
This holiday tradition is in its seventh year. We gather families, friends and neighbors to Whetstone Park and the adjacent high school stadium for activities that are as much about fellowship as they are the funds and awareness generated for the Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resources Center.
Along those lines, it can be more inspiring and fun to know that other people are supporting your efforts,whether you are a first-time walker or a diehard runner competing in a 5K every weekend.
That's why we're partnering with Crowdrise to make it easy to either set up your own team, which can gather pledges and gifts to support the CRC's work in the community, or to get friends and family to support you as an individual. All proceeds benefit the CRC's community programs – Choice Food Pantry, Senior Services, Kinship Care, Transportation, Family Services, Kids Club, etc. An easy way to do this is to ask friends, family, and co-workers to sponsor you, $5-$10 per kilometer.
Setting up a fundraising page takes less than 5 minutes and is simple to share via Facebook, Twitter, gmail, etc. The more you share, the bigger our impact can be! If an additional $10 can buy 40 meals (and it does!), just imagine how much $5,000 would help!
If you have any questions at all, email Cliff at email@example.com and he'll try to help!
