Run, Walk for a Good Cause!

It's hard to stay motivated to exercise! That's why I like to sign up for a charity walk or run each season. Having a goal gets me moving, and I feel energized knowing that I'm helping people and exercising for a good cause. Plus, it's usually a whole lot of fun!

Yesterday, I participated in a 8K fun run benefiting my local pet adoption center. This was a particularly fun one because...

...everyone brought their dogs!!!

Four thousand participants...all of them with their dogs! Can you even imagine? It was a great day!

Still on the fence? Maybe this will convince you. Here are some great reasons for participating in a charity run or walk:

  • Signing up for an official event is great motivation to get in shape.
  • You can help your favorite charity.
  • Participating in a fun run or walk is a great way to meet other walkers and runners in your area.
  • Free t-shirts and Gatorade!

Popular runs/walks include the Avon Walk, Walk MS, and March of Dimes. Check with your local charitable organizations to see if they are offering any events in your area.

Have you ever participated in a charity run or walk?
