Virtual Race for Charity

My favorite half marathon has been the Disney Princesses one. I did that one back in February and loved almost everything about it; I loved the course, the entertainment on the course, the crowd, and the costumes. The only thing I didn't love was the wake up time, but even that had it's benefits because half the run for me was done in the dark. I'll be running that race again in February, but this time I'm running as part of a charity team. Since I signed up with the team back over the summer I have been trying to think of ways to raise money. I've got some items for a silent auction and people have been extremely generations with their donations. I have 2.5 months to reach my $3,000 fundraising goal and I'm hoping that doing a virtual run will bring me closer to my goal.

I first learned about virtual runs on Facebook and I love the idea of it. You sign up, run the distance whenever and wherever you want, and then you get a medal. My race is a 5K and is called The Cookie Runner Virtual 5K and the medal has the logo of my little cookie runner. I wanted to share the information for the race in case anyone wanted to sign up for it or in case you know of anyone who might be interested in doing something like this. I completed the run last week and dedicated one of my training runs to Give Kids The World.

This is the site with all the information: The Cookie Runner Virtual 5K. The race is $20, includes a medal, and the net proceeds go to Give Kids The World. Thanks for all your help and support!
