Empowering Others Through Running

Marathon CoaltionIt didn’t take more than a moment to come up with a tag line for the Marathon Coalition 5 years ago. Empowering Others Through Running captured the essence of our mission.

Marathon Coalition runners have committed themselves to providing opportunities and inspiration to others. I am so inspired by the example of giving that I witness each week. Every week, one of the 13 Marathon Coalition charities share their mission before our run and provides volunteers for our water stops. These are young people that are benefitting from the funds being raised by the runners from their respective charity.

Marathon Coalition runners are committed to serving others and providing hope to people that are so deserving and appreciative. Any life worth living has to include serving others. The True North for a charity runner is the desire and commitment to helping others realize they are capable of achieving far more than they ever imagined.

True greatness is not what we accomplish ourselves, but what greatness we inspire in others!
