EVENT DATE Dec 31, 2017
DAYS TO GO: 70
In 2015 I ran my first 5k. Well, I participated in it - I wasn't able to run the whole distance. I participated in four more 5ks that year, and never fully ran for any of them (although I did have fun and was able to raise money for some organizations and charities that I care deeply for).
By the end of 2016, I will have only participated in two 5k runs, and to be honest, my running and training in general took a big slump.
But a new year is starting soon! I am feeling positive about the impact I can make this year, and I get a rush from donating to causes close to my heart. And honestly, I don't need any more things to clutter up my tiny apartment.
So my ongoing goal for 2017 is to participate in one 5k run a month, with the majority of them benefiting a local or national charity. Some of the causes I care about are the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society (proceeds from July's Float Dodger and October's Run Scared), Be The Match - National Bone Marrow Donor Registry, and National MS Society (Run MS Seattle in April).
Here's where YOU come in! Not only am I looking for donations for sponsorship in any of these runs, but I want to know what causes you care about. I will be taking suggestions for specific 5k runs in the Seattle area, or I can look for runs supporting your favorite charity.
My goal is based on an average registration fee of $35, but some can cost more or less. If you make a donation and would like it to be applied to a specific run or charity, let me know! Anything left "in the pot" will be applied to the next month's run - leftovers will be donated to LLS at the end of the year.
Here is my tentative schedule:
January: Race for Our Rights 5K; Planned Parenthood 1/20 - REGISTERED
March: Hot Chocolate Run; Ronald McDonald House Charities 3/5 - REGISTERED
April: Run MS Seattle MS Society
July: Float Dodger LLS West Seattle
October: Run Scared LLS Seward Park - REGISTERED
I will also consider "virtual runs" where I run in the Seattle area while others run in their own neighborhoods, and make donations online.
