Orphan Care Alliance is once again participating in the Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon/MiniMarathon charity module. We are currently recruiting runners for our team. You can register for the marathon via the Derby Festival Marathon site at www.derbyfestivalmarathon.com. Once you have done that, you can become a member of OCA’s team by clicking on the “race information” link, selecting the charity program and choosing the Orphan Care Alliance link. This will take you to your active.com account that allows you to set up a fundraising web page.
For all fundraisers who register by February 10, 2013 AND raise $300 by April 27, OCA will reimburse your runner fee (receipt required, of course). We will also provide you with an OCA running shirt and a delicious pasta dinner the night before the race with our staff and race volunteers.
Our Orphan Care Alliance training team will be starting soon and we would love to have you join us! Please let us know if you are interested and we will put you in touch with our training team leader.
If you aren’t able to run the race, but would like to be a “virtual runner” and help OCA raise funds, you can go to www.active.com/donate.oca and click on “become a fundraiser.” This will take you to active.com where you can create a fundraiser webpage to begin your fundraising efforts. How easy is that!
Please let me know if you have any questions or problems getting registered.
