Sean: That’s great. I was going to tell you that really anybody that you come in contact with that is community minded could help in some way. And we call it the three T's. It's time, talent and treasure. Given that the limit is $400 for this race, a lot of folks that even if they don't have a lot of money they can budget it out over the next you and make that happen. As we're talking about these folks, especially folks that have sat on boards that, are great. When you were involved with United Way, were you ever on the board of United Way?
Healthiness. Fun. Making a change. These are all words that people encounter when they do a color run. In this color run, there will be a bunch of different colors that you throw up into the air! Also, at different spots, life the start, half point, and finish, there will be other colored powder thrown at your/in the air! After or before the run you can buy things such as t-shirts and other fun things to help raise money. Doing this color run will help us raise money and it will help other people make a change. Our color run encourages people to do things that will help make a change in someone’s life, like donating or showing someone some kindness. Then, after you have changed someone’s life, in the smallest or biggest ways, they will hopefully pass it on and make a
I'm riding in this year's MS150, and would love your support in my fundraising efforts! With your encouragement and support, I was able to ride over 1000 miles and raise over $1000 dollars last year. I hope to get the same encouragement and support from each of you to do even more this year.
We are a charitable community holding a different charitable events. There are soldiers which is a long time supporter of our community. However, our community does not hold a charitable event for veterans yet, until it came up to our idea that its time to payback to our soldiers. We desire to help them through running.
"The non for profits that come out, the scout troops, the college organizations, the volunteer fire departments all rally around the event. It's just a nice way to give back," said Shelia Sutton, Wineglass Marathon Co-Director. Five years ago, the Wineglass Marathon began the tradition of giving back to the community. Since then, nearly $250,000 has been donated to local schools and organizations. This year's largest
The Big Event is where students do not sit, and they do not sleep, and they do not drink caffeine, all in support of these children going through these tough times. My senior year of high school, when I decided to come to the University of Iowa, Dance Marathon raised over $2 million all for the kids. I knew I wanted to be a part of
Every runner wore a bib number with the time they start on it. As I was running people were passing me who had started after me, and I kept thinking I was going too slow and that I shouldn’t be taking this long to complete it. Through words of encouragement from my mom and decipline mentras from myself I finished the race, I crosses the fanish line and the feeling of triumph as I crossed it was something I’ll never forget.
I want to accomplish this goal in my twenties before I have a family. I want to backpack around Europe to become closer to nature and appreciate the different cultures. I want to explore beyond small-town Iowa.
Whether or not information was shared on the brothers, the larger question remained: why did the brothers radicalize and kill and injure scores of people who were attending the Boston Marathon?

In recent years, rising expectations, fueled by images of affluence and democracy spread by the mass media have provoked feelings of deprivation among many populations, particularly in Africa, Asia, and parts of Eastern Europe. Individuals who become terrorists oftentimes do so because they feel unheard, insignificant, unheard, or not important. Still others follow a cause or group that is misguided and can lead to violent
I have been a part of numerous groups throughout my high school FFA career, class officer and my time as a member of 4-H. Many of the groups I have been a part of have been very successful and productive. I am the former president of a 4-H horse club called Trailblazers. We host an annual Ultimate Horsemen’s Challenge Association, UHCA, race as a fundraiser. With great organizational skills, planning and overall politeness when speaking with potential sponsors, Trailblazers has hosted one of the most attended in the entire season for riders in the UHCA circuit. Over the last three years, our number of horse and riders has almost doubled in size, our selection of prizes has expanded thanks to loyal sponsors, and we have such an increase enough
We raise money that goes towards research for treatments against childhood diseases. My first year I was on the production and marketing committee. We documented important events leading up to the marathon and kept a live stream going through the whole thing as well. My second marathon I joined the hospitality committee. I aided in the search to find local restaurants that would donate food throughout that marathon. The day of the marathon I made sure all the dancers were properly accounted for and received any information they may need. We organized food deliveries and eating times for over 30 different restaurants and 2,000
When the race begins the runners all begin by running at a pace that is comfortable for them. Runners need to try and to start as close to the front as possible. After the first mile, all the runners will begin to spread out. That’s when the hard part starts. Runners now will begin to speed up and begin passing as many runners as they can, but at the same time they can't let anyone pass them. Usually when your about to pass someone they will
