Hi North East Bloggers! Today's post is a little different because I want to share something with you guys about one of our fellow North East Bloggers- Rebecca. First of all, Rebecca is the fabulous person who did our $30 etsy shop give away a few weeks ago and writes on the blog Caravan Sonnet.
Rebecca's sister Emily recently created a special fundraiser for her called Rebecca's Run. This purpose of this is to raise money for her many treatments for her diagnoses of Chronic Lymes Disease and Cancer. All proceeds from this race will go towards Rebecca's treatments.
Rebecca's Run is a Virtual Race!!
You might be wondering what that is so here is all the info you need to know:
A virtual race is a race just like any other, except that there is no "official" race location, only a designated race location. A virtual race provides the opportunity for anyone to participate no matter where you live. A virtual race allows you to simply register for the race and then run during the designated race weekend (October 11th-13th, 2013) when you want and where you want(outside, indoor track, treadmill, or participate in another race. After you have completed your race email in the results when you're done (email to: firstname.lastname@example.org). All the results will be compiled for each category (1/2 marathon, 10k, 5k, and walk opportunity) and results will be posted on this website after the race is over. We welcome any pictures or stories to accompany your weekend- please use #rebeccasrun in any social media context !
How to participate:
In order to participate all you need to do is register for the race, run it at any point during the weekend of October 11-13th, 2013, and then email your results NO LATER THAN midnight (EST) Sunday, October 13th, 2013 if you would like to be included in the winner standings.
So, no matter where you live you can participate! I hope you take a moment to consider joining Rebecca's race!
