Running for a Reason
501 (C) (3) NONPROFIT CHARITY
Running For A Reason is a Nevada nonprofit corporation founded by Marc Gohres who saw an opportunity to combine his passion for running with the desire to help others. The organization was founded to encourage runners to participate in raising money for charitable causes during athletic events. We then encourage our donors and participants to be active in the selection of charities and organizations we support.
Running For A Reason has been granted status as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is composed primarily of volunteers who plan, organize and assist fundraisers at running and other athletic events.
Running For A Reason was founded to encourage runners to participate in raising money for charitable causes at running and other athletic events. We believe that these athletes share our values and beliefs that together we can make a difference. Our vision is to make a difference in the lives of others less fortunate than ourselves.
We encourage athletes to commit to a goal of raising money every time they participate in an event. With these contributions we will diligently distribute money to organizations and causes that our participants help us choose. We strive to make this organization among the most highly respected of its kind, locally and nationally in both ethics, overhead and accountability.
Running For A Reason supports the advancement of running and all athletic activities as an element of a balanced, healthy lifestyle. We support people, organizations, projects and ideas that promote an understanding of, access to and/or participation in exercise as part of a balanced lifestyle and physical fitness regimen. We Run For A Reason.
$26.20 for a Marathon, $13.10 for a half.
Itís Simple. Raise a dollar a mile. Ask your mom, ask a friend, who canít get pledges for a dollar a mile?
Our strength is in our numbers. 17,300 people ran the Los Angeles Marathon in 2008.
If we got half of those people to commit to $1 a mile, we would have raised almost a quarter million dollars in just one event.
The key is YOU. We need YOU! Help us help others. Run for a reason!
