We Run For Hope- Because We Can
It all began 12 years ago when a subcommittee of the Northern California Food Industries Circle tossed out the idea to run a Marathon to raise money for the City of Hope and everyone said, "I'm in!"
Little did they know 12 years later the Run for Hope team would still be going — stronger than ever. Eight to 10 runners have become 30 to 40 with teams from Northern California retailers, manufacturers and sales and marketing companies.
This year the NCFIC Marathon Training takes the team to beautiful Santa Barbara on November 8, 2014, for either the full (26.2) or half (13.1) race. Each runner not only dedicates time in training, but also fundraises to earn at least $3,750 each. The team goal is to raise over $200,000 — hopefully with corporate sponsors that benefit the entire team.
The training program provides runners and walkers of all fitness levels with the tools to complete their personal physical challenge. More important, every runner has their own personal story — we invite you to visit their personal pages to find out more about why our group is so passionate about this event.
It’s not too early to join us- please consider participating or sponsoring an individual or our entire dedicated group of athletes.
