I ran 8 miles for kidney cancer. My sister was just diagnosed last week and is having part of her kidney removed next week. emoticon

I'm in! I signed up awhile ago, and I also have my t-shirt. I may not be able to run very much though because I'm still in PT for a hip injury. But I can walk/run it. My charity is the Animal Protective Foundation.

Hmmm-this is very interesting. I would certainly do this if I knew I would be all cleared to run again. Having physical therapy for a foot injury right now, but there is a good chance I might be able to run by then. Maybe I could get my husband to. He is training for a half right now. I was diagnosed with an auto-immune illness 2 years ago and that is what led me to Spark People this past January. Getting healthy has helped diminish my symptoms and made my doctors very happy. (me too!!) My charity would be the National Dysautonomia Assoc. since that relates to my illness. Will check with my husband and my doctor and get back to you all. Anne

Congrats on signing up Lana. I am sorry about your stepdad. What a great way to remember him as you are running and know that you are doing something to help the AHA and yourself at the same time. Great job!

I just signed up! emoticon

Paid my entry fee and will get my shirt in 1-2 weeks.

I also made an online donation to the American Heart Association and have dedicated both the run and the donation to my stepdad, Max, who passed away a week ago today.

I feel so good about this, I just can't tell you! This is WAY COOL! Thanks so much for posting about it as I would have never known about it and it couldn't have come at a better time for me!!

Thanks Nancy, but I am way to new at this mental game of running. But, slowly I am getting better. I just love the thinking about the other runners, new and masters, that are out there running with me.

It's a race you do on your own or with other runners...you also get to chose the charity of your choice, trusting that you will make a donation. This is like doing your own little charity run. Take a photo of you in your shirt and send it their way and they'll post it on the site.

HAPPY RUNNING!
Nancy

wait... I was looking at the website and I'm a little confused. do you have to create a race in your area? or can you just go out and run by yourself? (the whole downloadable bib thing is throwing me off) and when they say donate to a charity... does that mean you're supposed to raise $ or are you just donating your $17.99?

Nope...They will let you register almost right up to the day. It is a FANTASTIC event and for some great causes, too. I think we should make Sandy our race director... emoticon

Yes, you run it on your own. You can dedicate it to whom ever you want and pledge money to the charity of your choice. I dedicated my run to my two kids. I pray that they never deal with obesity as I have. I am pledging money to the pre-school that they both went to since they helped us build a foundation of learning for the kids. My t-shirt arrived within about 2 weeks of registration. Should be a fun run!

This sounds interesting. My stepfather just passed away last Thursday and it would be nice to dedicate it to him. I checked out the website already. Is this a run you do on your own and they send you the shirt? That's what I kind of gathered from reading the site. Neat idea.

Sandy,

I did it last year and I am doing again this year. Last year I ran with my running group, however this year I am running solo. Love the t-shirts and can't wait to run a great cause...The Union Gospel Mission.

HAPPY RUNNING!

Is anyone else out there running on world run day November 9th? I have signed up and pledged money to the charity of my choice. In fact I have my tshirt already. I just wondered if anyone else would be 'virtually' running with me.
