PPMD’s ‘Run For Our Sons’ Fundraising Events Can Use Your Help
The next Run For Our Sons event will be an official charity partner of the Rock n’ Roll Raleigh Marathon, Half Marathon and 5K on April 1-2 in Raleigh, North Carolina.
You can register for the Run For Our Sons team at any Rock n’ Roll race in the U.S. and receive guaranteed entry – even if the race has sold out. You’ll also receive other team perks.
There are already some teams being formed in Ohio, Baltimore, Seattle and Savannah, but check out other races around the country and sign up for the one that suits you best. If there’s a race in your area that’s not on the calendar and you’d like to put together a team, you can email Danielle Garrigan.
PPMD has a new policy that went into effect this year regarding the application of grassroots fundraising dollars to Run For Our Sons fundraising minimums. The goal is to make sure the maximum amount of money is going to fund PPMD’s mission.
Let PPMD know about your fundraising ideas or join one of the initiatives suggested by the organization to help this mission.
Other marathons and running events collaborating with PPMD include the Walt Disney series:
