Team Free To Run Columbus 2015

Team Free To Run – Distance Running Fundraising Team

2015 Columbus Marathon & Half Marathon, October 18, 2015

Free To Run Foundation is recruiting runners and walkers who will be participating in the Columbus Marathon or half marathon on Sunday, October 18 to join Team Free To Run. By joining our training team, you will be helping to raise awareness of human trafficking in Central Ohio and abroad. Proceeds from registration and donations will support the education of youth in our communities and a project to build and support a school for trafficked girls in Cambodia, as well as supporting Free To Run’s programs. Free To Run Foundation will support you during your training and through race day while you will be making a difference sharing our initiatives and soliciting donations.

What You Will Receive

  • Free To Run Tech shirt (tee or tank) to wear during the race
  • Weekly training tips, including tips from our professional running ambassador
  • A Training Plan tailored to your experience level and needs
  • Private Facebook Group for interacting with team members
  • Team meal on Saturday evening before the race

Fundraising Goal

The suggested fundraising goal for each participant is $100 in donations. This goal does not include the registration fee for signing up (see below). You can make a personal donation, leaving less that you have to raise. Each participant will have a personal fundraising page, making it convenient for your friends, relatives and co-workers to donate online. Other ways to raise money include garage/yard sales, wine tastings and craft parties.

Once you raise $250 and higher, you will be eligible for fundraising prizes, like branded Free To Run gear.

More importantly, the more money you raise, the more you will make a difference in the lives of at risk youth here in Ohio and trafficked girls in Cambodia.

How to Sign Up

The fee for joining Team Free To Run is $50. The fee covers the cost of supplies and materials for the race.

Note: you will need to register for the race separately. Joining Team Free To Run does not guarantee a spot in the marathon or half marathon. If you need to register for the race, go to http://www.columbusmarathon.com. The races will sell out eventually, so register sooner rather than later.

Sponsors

If you work for a business or organization who is interested in sponsoring Team Free To Run, please have a representative email wr4h@troyfumc.org. Sponsors will be recognized on our race shirts, on our website, and on materials that will be at our booth at the Columbus Marathon Expo.
