Relief Nursery has partnered with the 2020 Eugene Marathon through its, Run for a Reason campaign.
Our goal is to continue building community awareness and raise money for Relief Nursery programs.
Ways you can be part of it:
1. Sign up to run on our team through Relief Nursery’s GoFundMe page and run for free when you commit to fundraising on our behalf. Sign up to run here.
2. Volunteer with Relief Nursery staff and friends at our designated water station. Help us cheer on the runners while keeping them hydrated. Email Maggido@reliefnursery.org to sign up.
3. Support the Relief Nursery team or a specific team member with their fundraising efforts here.
Some runners who are Running for the Children shared with us why they chose to do so.
“One of my core values is to listen to and live more from my heart. When I saw the opportunity to partner up with the Relief Nursery this year in fundraising in addition to running, my decision was made. I believe in building up individuals so they can in turn help others, and wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for the many helping hands that lifted me up when I needed it the most and continue to support me today.”
– Erin Lawrence, Chambers Construction
“I have been an avid runner for the past 8 years. During this time I have ran many races accomplishing the goals I have set for myself including running a full marathon and several half marathons. When I found out that I could fundraise for a local organization like the Relief Nursery, and run the Eugene Half Marathon, I was excited to get on board and contribute in any way possible. Let’s do everything possible to help the kids and families in our communities have successful, safe, and healthy lives.”
