Posted by Filed Under: Charity & Fundraising

With racing and marathon season upon us (some say it never left), it’s time to again turn our attention to runners who fundraise. Take a look at your tax refund (ha) and then consider these worthy causes!

First up is Cheryl of the Bryn Mawr Running Club.

Cheryl says

Our annual “Out and Back” charity run generated over $30,000 in direct donations to the ALS Hope Foundation last year. Our donation relies directly upon entry fees and “gifts” from sponsors. We would appreciate any donation, large or small to help a great organization in our annual drive. THis years race is set for April 27th. Corporate product donations for goodie bags are also welcome. Contact us directly for more information or call Cheryl at (215) 990-8382

Cindy says:

I have recently joined a group of runners in theNew Orleans area in training for the Rock N’ Roll Marathon in San Diego, Calif., on June 3, 2007. We are running in honor of a 3-year-old little girl named Mia LeBeouf who is an Acute Lymphoblastic Lymphoma survivor. Our individual goal is to raise $3,600 in support of research & finding a cure.
Thank for your time & support.
