Pledge the amount of miles you can run by December 12th, 2012, then raise $1 for every mile pledged!
How can you help?
1) Donate an amount of your choice now to support the fight against cancer
2) Pledge to run as many miles as you can between 12/12/11 and 12/12/12, and fundraise by having friends, co-workers, and family members sponsor you. If you run 50 miles, one person could sponsor 15 of them ($15) and another could sponsor 35 ($35). Direct them here to learn more and contribute!
3) Spread the site link with Facebook, Twitter, carrier pigeon, Google+, email - however you can!
I'm running for Anne.
Who are you running for?
Happy birthday Anne!!
