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 big "Register" button.

 

To Donate just click the big "Donate" button and choose the runner you want to donate to.

 

How it works:

Participants will pay a $99 registration fee to join the team to be registered for the race as a charity runner.  

 

Your $99 registration fee includes receiving the full benefits of the race as a charity runner, including but not limited to the race t-shirt, race medal, race expo and post-race festivities.

 

Training/Fundraising Details:

In order to earn race entry, team t-shirt, and team dinner at a D.C. restaurant the night before the event, you must raise a minimum of $500. (Your registration fee will count toward this minimum.)

 

Additional incentives and prizes such as your D.C. hotel room, airline gift card, and more can be earned by achieving other fundraising goals!

 

Mackenzie Jones (GWU Lacrosse player and Grassroots Coach) will serve as your coach and assist you with both your marathon training AND your fundraising to help ensure that you reach all your goals. Once you register to join the team, create your personal fundraising page here on Crowdrise. Your team registration fee will be added to your personal fundraising page by Mackenzie.

 

Upon registration, you’ll receive a team information packet from Mackenzie. This will be full of training information, fundraising tips, etc. 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!
