BENEFITING: FARM AID INC
Alright. Collectively we have 189.3 miles to race in 3 states. We want you to put your energy and money behind our efforts to raise funds for FarmAid (check out farmaid.org) We know its a difficult time for everyone to give, but do what you can, and then add 5 dollars... FarmAid is helping keep families afloat right now; keeping them on the land handed down through the generations of hard work. We can't control the weather. But we aren't lacking the ability to help.
We figure this is one way we can begin to give to those families in need. Stand with us and show your support for the families that keep America fed. As a convenient side effect we'll feel your support on our training runs and in racing.
"Farm Aid works with local, regional and national organizations to promote fair farm policies and grassroots organizing campaigns designed to defend and bolster family farm-centered agriculture... By strengthening the voices of family farmers, Farm Aid stands up for the most resourceful, heroic Americans—the family farmers who work the land." -FarmAid.org
Our races currently include: Omaha Marathon; Glacial Trail 50 Miler; Mankato Half Marathon
