A Message From Lisa Graves-Volorney

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
~Margaret Mead

Help me raise funds to offer kids the opportunity to receive a new pair of running shoes as they train for their 5K race. Setting a goal and working towards this achievement is a powerful lesson for anyone, and we are allowing kids to discover the thrill of a strong mind and body! Your donation will help the Hope Mission set these little people up with the tools needed to be successful. Please consider donating! xoxo

River City Runners 24 Hour Treadmill Challenge for Kids in Action

About This Campaign

Hey everyone, we've got an exciting update! Our treadmill sponsor, Flaman Fitness, has offered to donate $5,000 to Kids in Action when we hit our current goal of $10,000! We at RCR were blown away by this generous offer and we're sure you are as well! I know we've all worked super hard to raise nearly $7,500 but I have no doubt that we can keep pushing to hit that $10,000 goal! ----------------------- We're going big on this one! River City Runners (RCR) have partnered with Lululemon to raise $10,000 for the Hope Mission's Kids in Action Program. What's Happening? On February 14, 2015 RCR is holding a 24 hour treadmill challenge (we're going all night long baby). We're endeavouring to run 500 kilometers in 24 hours and raise $10,000 for the Kids in Action Program. The $10,000 will provide running shoes and healthy snacks for 200 Edmonton kids as they train their little hearts out for the Kids in Action 5k race on May 30, 2015! How can you get involved? We'll have two treadmills for the challenge. RCR will be running on one and YOU can run alongside us on the other one! We're breaking the second treadmill down into hour-long time slots. Each hour can be booked for a minimum donation of only $125. OK, this is awesome! What do I do next? Pick the hour (or hours) that you want to run with us from the list above. After you reserve your spot, you will be emailed a link where you can donate directly to Hope Mission. Then, get running!

    Lisa, thank you so much for helping our kids reach for their goals. This is so much more than shoes. You are giving them the gift of self-worth. Thank you!

    On Valentine's Day, I'll be joining River City Runners on a treadmill to raise funds for the Hope Mission's Kids in Action 5K race. With our support, funds will go to getting NEW running shoes on each and every kids' feet and healthy fuel into their bodies as they work towards their goal of completing the 5K race. Please join me in supporting this incredible opportunity for our city's little people to see firsthand how running can change lives.
