Sandy Hook Benefit, january 26th


This notice is from SBRunning Company:



Sandy Hook Benefit Run/Walk in Santa Barbara January 26, 2013

Santa Barbara Running Company is hosting a local benefit run/walk for Sandy Hook Elementary School. This run/walk is in honor of the victims of the Sandy Hook school shooting in Newton, Connecticut. It is a family friendly event. This is not a race, just a fun run/walk for charity. 

If you sign up at one of our stores prior to the event, your name will be entered into a raffle for fun prizes. It is a $20 entry fee. For every $20 we get, Santa Barbara Running Co. will donate $6. 

We will meet at Leadbetter Beach on January 26, 2013. A registration table will be up at 9:30AM and the event will begin at 10:00AM. Participants will have the opportunity to run/walk for twenty-six minutes, though we encourage you to continue your activity beyond the twenty-six minutes. All proceeds will go to those who lost their family and loved ones in the recent school shooting. 

In addition to your registration fee of $20, you are welcome to donate additional money, supplies for the running event, or collect extra donations if you choose. We will have some water and snacks and hope to have some donations of food but be sure to bring your own supplies for the day. Spread the word; bring your friends and family. Let's honor the kids and teachers who were taken far too soon!
