Promise Run

Date: 9/6/20

Join us on our virtual Promise Run on Sunday, September 6th. We have seen an enormous movement in the US and around the world in response to the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery. This summer, our MOVE campaign has raised a significant amount of money for organizations like the NAACP and National Bailout. We want to maintain this momentum continuing into the Fall. One part of this will be our Promise Run. This run symbolizes our Promise to not stop pushing for equality whether that means attending protests, continuing to educate yourself on issues of race, or supporting organizations that advocate for BIPOC.

There is no fee for registration but we are asking all runners to pledge to fundraise for this event. This fundraising pledge is non-binding but we would love for all runners make an earnest effort to meet their goal. The top 5 fundraisers will receive FREE New Balance X Medicine in Motion apparel. All proceeds will go to the NAACP and National Bailout.

Fundraising pledge:
We are asking for runners to pledge to raise money for this race. We have no minimum but ask that runners pledge what they think is reasonable for them. We hope that runners will ask friends, family, colleagues and peers to help reach their pledge amount and let them know WHY you are running and the promise you’re making.
