“Runners are used to earning a free bib, signing up for a charity to which they can dedicate their hard work. What an honor it will be for runners to choose local causes that directly impact this amazing community in which we live. “ Susanne Olson, local marathon runner and founding member Team DeMar
“... the race has become an important part of the fabric of the community, the way it has brought people and generations together” Peter Hanrahan, co-founder of the DeMar Marathon
Runners are amazing people. They support one another. They train hard together. They easily share very personal stories. They are passionate and determined. They are amazing friends.
Elm City Rotarians are like-minded folks, embracing the friendships and tough work that present themselves along life's highway. In service above self we too experience a motivation to go farther, to do more, to accomplish miracles, just as runners stretch their hearts and minds to the limit.
This year Keene Elm City Rotary is proud to showcase five of our key projects, projects related to the health and well being of children and youth in our community and from here out into the world. The money we raise in sponsorships, in registration, in donations and now in Team Demar, goes directly to these initiatives.
This year we invite all runners, not just local runners, to join Team DeMar and run for one of these great projects. We will take care of your registration fees and provide you with a free Team DeMar t shirt. Recognition and prizes will be part of the fun as we build team spirit along the way.
We ask that you pledge to raise at least 400.00 by October 10th and it is all easily managed through our Crowdrise website. For those who have already signed up it is easy to switch over to Team DeMar. Consider giving meaning to the miles and making the world a better place. We are proud of our work in the world. Join Team DeMar and become a part of it. Click on a Team and choose the project that speaks to your heart. We thank you and promise you an amazing experience.
