Find 52: Running Clubs
We know running’s important to you. We’re runners, too.
This July, Guelph-based runner Richard Clewes will run 198 kms in St. Lucia, completing 4.5 marathons in 5 days. His goal is to raise $52,000 to buy books and build school libraries. Along the route, thousands of students will join him to run 1 km relay segments!
So here’s a way you and your running club can make that passion count for thousands of kids in the developing world.
The idea is simple: If 33 people run 6 kms they will also run 198 kms. If each runner finds six pledges of $52– that’s one pledge for every km – they can personally raise $312. Thirty-three runners. That’s over $10,000 for literacy development.
Let us know if your club is interested in hosting a 6 km “challenge.”
By the way, as a registered Canadian charity, every dollar we receive is eligible for a CRA Tax Receipt.
Wait! Want to travel to St. Lucia to be part of a great story?
We need volunteers who love to run! Specifically, we need road crew members to help organize student runners along the course; we need ‘Rabbits’ for the kids to follow behind the elite and long distance runners; we need people who’d like to go the extra mile by running with Richard each day. Naturally, you can choose the distance you’d like to go and then slide into a different support role for the remainder of the day.
We’ve worked out a special, reduced rate for airfare from Toronto, accommodation, all meals, plus ground transportation.
