Join Team Childhelp in the 2011 Toronto Marathon
Posted 04/15/2011 by Childhelp
Join Team Childhelp as we run the Toronto Marathon for the treatment and prevention of child abuse on October 16, 2011! Together, we will run for every child that has been impacted by the trauma of abuse and prove that we are taking an active role in ending this terrible epidemic. With nearly 5 children dying daily from abuse, it is time to take a stand and say “Enough!”
Each runner will be tasked with raising $4,500 for Childhelp! Through creation of a personal fundraising page (go to www.childhelp.org/marathon to register and set up your personal fundraising page) each person will reach out to their friends and family on behalf of Childhelp and the children that we help through our programs.
They will also undergo a training regiment that will prepare them for the daunting task of running 26 miles! This training program will include updates from the Team Childhelp coach as well as monthly Team Childhelp practice runs to keep each person motivated toward their goal.
But it's not all work and no play. The fundraising efforts will also provide the following so that each person will be able to enjoy their time in the beautiful city of Toronto.
- roundtrip airfare
- hotel accommodations
- half-day city tour
- Team Childhelp race gear
- welcome reception in Toronto
- race day transpiration
- pre-race pasta dinner
- post race victory party
Join Childhelp today as we race to the end… the end of child abuse and toward the beginning of hope.
