BENEFITING: OKLAHOMA CITY NATIONAL MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
EVENT: Oklahoma City Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 27, 2014
My name is Chris Young! I was an avid runner in High School in both Cross Country and Track but I am 28 years old now. I haven't ran distance in quite some time at this level, but I hope to start here with my goal of running the half marathon on April 27th.
God Willing, my long term goal is to run a full marathon later this year with the big goal in mind of qualifying for Boston in 2015 #BostonStrong -- but what better place to start my journey than the OKC Memorial Marathon!
I understand that this event is not only for positive energy, positive phyisical fitness, but also to remember those and their families that lost their lives on that horrible day in 1995. I was a 3rd grader sitting in my class learning my times tables. I would like to raise some money for every mile I will run. I will be the first to donate, and I hope others will follow. I am going to donate $2 a mile for every mile I run to get this started and put my money where my mouth is. Please do what you can, I would appreciate it. Please let me know if you have any questions!
Anything (Even if it's the minimum $10) helps! Good cause, great encouragement. Thank you in Advance!!!
