2020 Sir Walter Running MembershipGiving Tuesday
It’s that time of year again and we couldn’t keep doing what we’re doing without your support! Whether it’s Giving Tuesday, a Tuesday Night Pop Up Miles event, or Pop Up Cross Country at Dix Park, your donation helps make this thing go. It allows us to get insurance for all our events. It allows us to pay for entries for those that can’t. And it allows us to cover some costs for our biggest event of the year, the Sir Walter Miler, which will celebrate its 7th anniversary on Friday, August 7, 2020.
“Bringing the Greater Raleigh running community together through innovation, activation, and inclusivity” is our Mission Statement, and as a 501(c)(3) non-profit, we rely on your donations to keep our events free and low cost for all! Every little bit helps, and all donations are tax deductible. These offers are ongoing, and not limited to Giving Tuesday (while supplies last). Don’t have money to donate? We’d love to have your help volunteering at the 2020 Raleigh Half Marathon!
