Let’s Walk or Run 1 Mile for Justice!

Sun’s out, sneakers on!
One Mile for Justice goes through Sunday this week.

Are you a walker or a runner? Or somebody who gets in a couple thousand steps just going about your day? This week make those steps count for justice! Fairhaven Runners is challenging our community to walk or run one mile and benefit the Whatcom Community Foundation’s Equity Fund, which provides grants for projects and organizations supporting social justice and equity.

We may or may not be able to walk a mile in the shoes of someone facing injustice, but it’s easy to walk a mile for their benefit. Here’s how:

1. Make a $10 donation to the Whatcom Community Foundation’s Equity Fund. Fairhaven Runners will match up to $2,000 in total donations.

2. Choose any day this week, through Sunday, August 30th to run or walk ONE MILE anywhere you want! Have fun, be respectful of social distancing guidelines, and if you can, we would love for you to share your run with us and tag us and Fairhaven Runners and Walkers on social media @fairhavenrunners

3. Email runners@fairhavenrunners.com when you have completed your mile, and you will be entered to win prizes to local BIPOC restaurants/businesses. You could also win gift cards from Fairhaven Runners and Walkers.
