Why Participate?

Recyle your gently used coats to offer those in need a warm winter coat for better health. Health experts report that even a 2-degree drop in body temperature results in reduced heart rate, loss of coordination, and confusion. Adults cannot work effectively and children find it difficult to learn. For most, a warm coat solves the problem. But, for the nearly 21% of Central Ohioans living in poverty, a warm winter coat is a budget “extra.”

Give back to the communities that open up their streets, trails, paths, and parks to us to be able to achieve our personal fitness goals. Your support allows the running, walking, and multisport community of Central Ohio to maintain a connection to their local community by supporting neighbors-in-need and others in need. It is our way of saying Thank you.

Help a homeless family or person stay warm this winter. One of the biggest problems associated with homelessness is teh challenge of staying warm. Your coats, hats, gloves, and scraves will benefit the homeless of Central Ohio.
