Oso Memorial Run planned for April 26th
We are in the very early planning stages of putting on a benefit run for those impacted by the mudslide in Oso on March 22nd. Arlington Runners Club is 100% volunteer 501(c)(3) organization and that allows us to donate 100% of the proceeds to help reduce the financial burdens of those impacted by the mudslide and means your contributions are tax deductible. We wish we could do something to help with the loss of loved ones but our hearts and prayers are with them.
You can help ARC get the word out about this event in the making. At this point all we know is that we want to host a run on April 26th and donate the monies received. We have NO idea how big this will be in our community but we know we will need volunteers to help us pull this off and sponsors to help us financially cover the overhead costs of putting on an event. Because we expect this to be the largest event in Arlington Runners Club history, our largest event so far was just under 300 participants, there will be some things we’ve not had to do before – like traffic control and porta-potties and the like. If you would like to help sponsor the event or volunteer, please drop me an email at jon@ArlingtonRunnersClub.org
We’ll do our best to keep our website and Facebook page updated with the progress of this event. If you could help us get the word out, we would appreciate it.
We’re still working on a name and logo for the event.
Our hearts and prayers are with you. God bless.
Jon Hatfield, Arlington Runners Club President and the Arlington Runners Club family
