Get Running Charity Classic – Healthy Living and Heartfelt Giving

The “Get Running Charity Classic” takes place Wednesday, May 11, 2011 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Ford Fieldhouse.  The Wellness & Enrichment Team is proud to sponsor the 2nd Get Running Charity Classic. First held in 2008, this event is making a return this year.

Here’s how it works. Employees form teams that will participate against each other in either a 30-minute fitness walk or a 1-mile running relay event. Each team selects a local charity they would like to raise money for by gathering donations in the days and weeks prior to the event.

All teams — walking or running — require 5 members. The winner in the walking category will be determined by the total number of laps walked by the team during the 30 minute fitness walk. In the running category, the team with the fastest time in a 10-lap, 1-mile relay will be the winner. AND all participants get a t-shirt :0)

Trophies will be awarded for:

  • The fastest relay running team
  • The team that walks the most laps during the 30-minute fitness walk
  • The team in each category (walking & running) who raises the most for their charity.
