Run-a-Thon For Black Lives Matter

Run-a-thon in support of the Black Lives Matter movement:

We are athletes of the Track and Field team at North Central College in Naperville Illinois and we are organizing a Run-a-Thon in order to raise money for the Black Lives Matter movement.

We are one of the largest teams on our campus, and more than anything we want to use our VOICES and our athletic talents to take ACTION to bring more awareness to the systemic racism and the struggles the black community faces every day in America.

The women and men of our team are committing to run a certain number of miles over a two week period, and they will ask family, friends and the greater community to donate to our cause in their honor.

At the end of this event, all proceeds will be donated to the North Central College Black Student Association to help them continue their important efforts on our campus, and the Chicago-based organization called My Block, My Hood, My City to support their mission of providing resources and assistance to underprivileged youth, and Black owned business around the city.

With your help, our team will continue to bring attention to the Black Lives Matter movement and encourage meaningful and lasting change in our society and on our campus.

Please support us and our cause to keep us running through July 1, 2020!
