I've got my training plan. let's raise some support!

  • Your job will be to ask people donate to CM in support of your run! For example: "Aunt Linda, will you donate $5 to CM for every kilometer I run in the River Bank Run?"
  • We know this may be a daunting task. We will be hosting a webinar (that will also be recorded and sent out) about how to raise money in this format. People do it ALL the time and are really successful, we just have to learn how!

the race is upon us! What do I need to know in the final days?

  • Attend Pre-Race Team Dinner May 10: Time and location TBD!
  • Meet us at the starting line May 11!
  • Take after our friend Forrest Gump & "Run, Forrest, Run!!"
