Got2Run For Education 2015 is just 4 weeks away! Please see attached revised Save-The-Date Flyer which highlights the fact that you don’t have to run, YOU CAN WALK! For those that would still like to train for the event, see the attached 4-Week Couch-To-2.62 Training Program.

We are really excited to announce that 101.9 THE MIX has joined as a Champion Sponsor and will be promoting the event – Whip from the Eric & Kathy Morning Show will be the event Emcee, and the MIX Road Crew will be there as well. Another recent sponsor addition is Nestle Nesquik who will be at the event handing out free samples.

How would you like to do something special for yourself this May? You can by participating in
Got2Run For Education!! The goal of the event is to encourage children, their parents, and school staff to become interested in running as a healthy lifestyle choice, not just for this event, but for the rest of their lives. This is an opportunity to bring the community together to support children’s wellness activities.
• 143 Schools and 98 towns were represented in the 2014 event!
• Over $50,000 total donated back to schools to fund wellness since inaugural event in 2012!
Northwest Road Runners, a local running club, was established as a 501(c)3 charitable organization to organize this run/walk to promote wellness in children. All funds raised by the event are distributed back to the schools of the participants – all you have to do is check your school’s box when registering.
Two course lengths are offered:
• 2.62 mile “Micro-Marathon” Run/Walk (1/10th of a marathon)

You CAN do it with the Training Programs posted on the website! No time to train? You don’t have to run, YOU CAN WALK!!
