How to: Organize a 5K Charity Run

Malika Chopra | GOOD


When you organize a charity run or walk-a-thon, you accomplish so much for the health of the community.

For starters, you get a large group of people exercising. Who knows, your event just might be the starting point for some lifelong couch potatoes to take better care of their health!

You’d also bring much-needed awareness for a health charity or cause that affects many people. Whether you are raising funds for breast cancer research, a cystic fibrosis support group or AIDS awareness, the money from the event will improve…the lives of many folks who need your help.

So what are you waiting for?

On your mark, get set–and GO!→
