About the Campaign:
What is the Run Your City (RYC) Campaign? Run Your City is a National Run Campaign designed to get people, run groups, classes, teams, & businesses involved in raising awareness for amputee athletes. The RYC Campaign based around individuals hosting social runs in their cities and inviting others to join in the campaign to raise money & awareness. Amputee Blade Runners is an organization based upon helping amputees regain their active lifestyle. So this campaign was created to get individuals involved in the same activity that many of our team members practice....Running.
2015 was our 1st year to host the RYC Campaign and we had 20 social run locations around the country, raising just over $12,000. That amount of money allowed our organization to help 4 amputees realize their dreams of being active again and this year we have higher goals. We want to have 50 social run locations around the country & raise $25,000, which would allow us to help 9 amputees receive free running legs!
When do I run? The RYC Campaign will take place during the WHOLE month of May, 2016, so there will be plenty of options to either choose a social run in your area, or host one yourself.
Where do I run? That's the beauty of this campaign. You can run where you live. Find someone either hosting a run during the month of May or grab some friends & start a run of your own!
How do I sign up? We will be launching our Event page on February 1st for individuals to sign up for the Run Your City Campaign.
How much does it cost to join the RYC Campaign? It doesn't cost anything, but we do encourage a $5 online donation so we can reach our goal of raising $25,000 to help more amputees Run Free!
Are these runs sanctioned? No, these runs will not be sanctioned or supported, but rather just a good social run to raise money & awareness for amputee athletes!
What will be the distance for each run? The distance for each run will be determined by the individual or group hosting the social run in your area.
