Let Your Feet Make A Difference For Children Around The World
The Finish For Kids Team was created through a partnership between the The Carefree Foundation and Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children (FIMRC). These organizations provide medical care and health education to children and communities worldwide.
Finish For Kids is honored to once again be selected as a Marine Corps Marathon Charity Partner. It will be exciting to have its team members on the starting line come October 28, 2012. Even more exciting is the opportunity to further serve kids by participating in the October 27th, 2012 Healthy Kids Fun run as a lead in to the big events on Sunday.
All of the funds raised by the team are directed solely to the medical relief work of FIMRC and The Carefree Foundation.
Why Join Finish For Kids?
According to the medical research journal, The Lancet, every minute of every day, 20 children die somewhere in the world, and two-thirds of these deaths could be readily averted by existing preventive and therapeutic strategies. Children die as a result of stagnated progress, missed opportunities, and growing inequities in provision of basic services – in short, a worldwide public health disaster.
When you join the Finish For Kids Team, you help FIMRC and The Carefree Foundation work to alleviate preventable medical conditions and enable children worldwide to grow up healthy.
Spots are just $390, which includes the race registration fee.
By joining Finish For Kids you not only are guaranteed entry into the marathon*, but you also are guaranteed enrollment in www.FitnessJournal.org.
*Finish For Kids will officially register you for the Marine Corps Marathon through the Charity Division. This takes place in August. After you receive an email confirming registration with Finish For Kids no additional steps are necessary at this time aside from kick starting your fund raising efforts! A Finish For Kids Welcome Packet will be sent out after you register that includes lots of helpful information.
Although our training program is based in Washington, DC, you do not need to live in the Washington area in order to join us. Some of our past team members have traveled from across the United States to support us.
