VIRTUAL RUN FOR IT 2020
Run For It may be virtual this year, but the purpose is still the same - to raise awareness and support for non-profits, civic organizations and other charities throughout a seven-county region of W.Va. (Barbour, Grant, Mineral, Pocahontas, Preston, Tucker and Randolph) and Garrett County, Md.
The Tucker Community Foundation challenges participants to raise team support for the community cause of their choice during the Virtual Run For It 2020 campaign and then run or walk for that cause in a 2k/5k event during the month of September.
During these challenging times, the Tucker Community Foundation is changing up the rules on Run For It. At a team's request, we will pay out the team sponsorship monies monthly for the event. We encourage nonprofit organizations to set up their fundraising page and share it with potential donors. You can add information about your organization's programs and needs during this crisis and beyond.
If your organization needs help setting up your fundraising page, we are happy to assist in setting it up. Please call, 304-478-2930, or send us an email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
