There are so many worthy causes with annual invitations to run and walk. Why not participate?
Friendly competition is the best competition because everyone is a winner. Not to mention that your efforts and participation directly benefit people in need of support. The causes vary, the locations vary, and the activities vary. Thus, no matter what issue is close to your heart, where you live, or your activity level, you can make a difference and collectively we can have an impact on the issues that plague our society.
