BENEFITING: TRACH SHACK FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Jan 01, 2012
I am running 12 Half Marathons in 2012. My initial reasons for wanting to do so were mainly for ME - to be fit, healthy, and feel alive at 40! But recent articles from Runners World about dedicating your run for a cause and articles about Crowdrise made me rethink about my purpose.
As I pondered about what my purpose would be, a couple of conversations from my co-workers led me to this fundraising cause.
So I am dedicating my 12 half marathon races to the Track Shack Foundation. Track Shack has been providing Central Florida with wonderful, well organized races for the past two decades. As an educator, I am also thankful that Track Shack recognizes school teams' efforts - Track Shack has given money to schools' running programs.
Do you want to join my team? You do not need to run 12 half marathons! Will you consider running 12 races a year? How about participating in four 5K (3.1 miles) races? How about running 12 miles in 2012? Whatever you decide, have a great fitness and giving 2012!
