Fall 5K

I've been throwing around the idea of running a 5K when the weather cools down a bit! Here's three that I've found that would work with my schedule:

Nearly two-thirds of funds raised by the Great Prostate Cancer Challenge stay within the community and are used toward ending prostate cancer by providing education, free testing and research. For more information and to find a GPCC event in your city click here

Money raised benefits the Annapolis Lighthouse Shelter, an organization dedicated to providing shelter, food, clothing and job training to homeless individuals and families and those who are at risk of becoming homeless. 

This festival has about 30 charities participating in the event. I would probably choose to donate to The One Love Foundation. Created in 2010 to honor the memory of Yeardley Reynolds Love, they are quickly becoming a leading resource and voice against Relationship Violence.

What about you? Have you started thinking about fall plans?


  1. Oooh, sounds like the perfect thing to do in the fall. Good luck!

  2. i'm not much of a runner but i've always thought that running a 5k would be really fun. last fall I walked a 5k and it was a blast. :)

  3. You should definitely do it! I ran my first half marathon back in November and it is such a liberating feeling. You truly feel like you accomplished something. Good Luck:)
