A Message From Kerry Precht

I started running two and half years ago; it has changed me, and my life, in so many good ways: I'm healthier, happy, more confident. As a result, I am excited about the good things that running can do in others' lives!

Last spring, I was involved with the Hope Mission's Kids in Action 5K race. KIA is a program for kids from several inner city Edmonton elementary schools. The kids had trained all year for the event. I was on the cheer team last year, stationed at the middle of the Big Hill and it was so awesome seeing all these elementary school racing up -- some running, some walking, but all of them trying so hard -- toward us. (I shed a lot of happy tears.) But it's no joke to say that a lot of the kids had terrible footwear for running: boots, high tops, sandals. Running shoes just aren't part of their families' budgets.

This treadmill fundraiser is an exciting way to do more to support the Kids in Action program. I'm looking forward to my hour on the treadmill with the River City Runners (who are all inspiring and encouraging people!), and I'm also excited to run 5K with an awesome kid who is wearing good shoes this May.

Please consider donating!

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!
