  • thank you for posting
  • Although this isn't going to work for me personally, I really admire people who support causes for the greater good!
  • My dad was a deputy and they had a donkey basketball charity game in our brand-new high school gym with tarps on the floor! Funny and fun for everybody. They should start it up again. It is hilarious and raised a lot of money.
  • I feel intimidated about running but care deeply about causes. This piece reminded me that you can also *walk* for a cause! Thank you - great inspiration!
    It makes sense that charity races would be a good idea. Not only would it encourage people to get out and get fit, but it would also raise money for a good cause! I'll be sure to consider giving one a try if I notice any charity runs going on around me.
    Thanks for sharing

  • Can't lose with this situation. Working on your health and giving back to those who really need it.
  • I totally agree with this article....for 3 years in a row I walked in the "50 miles in 3 days" for MS awareness. I proudly walked with my DH picture posted on my back and my grown children participating in the food station table and/or cheering station. It was an emotional three day event!!
    This event will collect more money from the participants,if they would announce about their race to increase the fund and thus this charity will help the needed person.
  • I've been running for a little over a year now after joining Team Muscle Makers😃. I completed my first half marathon at Disneyland in August of last year, and then my second just 2.5 months later! We are now just over 7 weeks out from the Tinkerbell Half Marathon and I couldn't be more excited! Shooting for a PR plus I get to hang out for a weekend with my awesome teammates and raise money for a great cause!
    I do Breast Cancer walks with groups of friends.
