My absolute FAVORITE thing about the running community is so many of us are focusing on raising money and awareness for various causes. I know I'm struggling to raise money and so are many of you so I thought I would link to a few groups/pages so that you might help fellow runners out. Remember, NO AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL. I will add more as I come across the links. Feel free to email me with yours at and I will add it to the page!
