EVENT DATE: May 19, 2013
DEADLINE TO REGISTER: May 1, 2013
The Grassroot Project is raising awareness and money for our cause through the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C. on May 19, 2013. This year we're making it easier than ever to let all of our runners, volunteers and supporters get involved and help make a difference by partnering with CrowdRise.
To Register for Team Grassroots, click the team page and then the big "Join" button*.
To Donate just click the big "Donate" button and choose the runner you want to donate to**.
How it works:
All participants must commit to raising $500 to be part of our team. The good news is that within this $500, we are covering your registration fee, race t-shirt, race-medal, race expo, and post-race festivities. You do not have to pay the standard MCM registration fee if you commit to joining (and fundraising for) Team Grassroots!
Additional incentives and prizes such as your DC hotel room, airline gift card, and more can be earned by achieving other fundraising goals!
Once you sign up on CrowdRise, Mackenzie Jones (GWU Lacrosse player and Grassroots Coach) will send you an email confirming your place on our team.
She'll serve as your coach and assist you with both your marathon training AND your fundraising to help ensure that you reach all your goals. Don’t be nervous – you WILL succeed at completing the race AND raising the funds to help more young people in DC live health, positive, HIV-free lives!
The only catch? Sign up fast - we only have 25 total spaces on our team!
*Note: If you would like to register for Team Grassroots, please register here (and NOT on the Marine Corps Marathon website). If you have already registered on the MCM website, please contact us and we will convert your registration to a charity runner spot with Team Grassroots.
**You may also donate by check. Please contact Mackenzie Jones at mackenzie@GrassrootProject.org for details.
