Actually for those who really gian free stuff, you'll get a T-shirt and goodie bag just for signing up~ ALL proceeds go to the Muscular Dystrophy Association so you'll be doing a good deed. Many of these kids can't walk, let alone run, and the adults? They probably have never even known what it's like to be on their feet. So what's a little running and sweating a little out for them, really? We're really blessed to be healthy and able-bodied, you know?
Still considering? Just go la~ It's a good excuse to exercise and lose those calories you've been overeating. And do something useful.
