HELP THE FIREHOUSE SHELTER RAISE $25,000 VIA THE UPCOMING MERCEDES MARATHON
Posted by Kelly Wallace on 02/07/2013
Sunday, February 17th is the big day for the annual Mercedes Marathon. Thousands of runners will run either a 13.1 mile half-marathon, the 26.2 mile full marathon or run 26.2 miles as a 5 person relay team. This is the third year that The Firehouse Shelter has partnered with the Mercedes Marathon officials in an attempt to raise community awareness and funding by forming relay teams and asking for financial donations to support the various programs at The Firehouse Shelter.
We have 10 different 'teams' AGAIN this year with 39 runners that will jog on February 17th. Our goal is to raise $25,000 in 2013. Interested in helping promote a healthy lifestyle of exercise and running? DONATE today via PayPal on our website @ www.firehouseshelter.com.
Or, come on out to cheer for The Firehouse Shelter runners (they will be wearing red FIREHOUSE SHELTER t-shirts) on Sunday morning between 7 am and 11 am! Thanks for your support!
