Calling all runners, walkers, and Red White and Boom enthusiasts! Please join Columbus Gives Back as we participate in the Charity Day 5k July 2nd to kickoff your 4th of July celebrations. We’re looking to build our CGB team and we’d love to have your company as we run/walk (or maybe skip?) a 5k in support of numerous non-profits and their fantastic causes throughout Columbus.
The Charity Day 5k is a collaborative effort to put on a charity 5k event. Rather than having multiple races supporting numerous causes all occurring on any given day, the Charity Day 5k pools the efforts and resources to create one race where the all participating charities go in together to reduce overhead costs and share in the profits. Basically, we’ll run one 5k but we’ll have the benefit of supporting all the participating charities at once! In addition to supporting Columbus Gives Back, you’ll also be supporting Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Westerville Special Olympics, Wounded Warrior Project, Ohio Guidestone, and many others. More information about this event is available here.
