7th Annual Santa Run/Stroll
About This Opportunity
This is our primary fundraiser for the year. It is a 1 mile fun walk, 5k walk/run and 10k run. Participants are encouraged to dress in their best Christmas costume or wear the free Santa suit provided with registration. Money from this event helps to fund mini grants for students who want to do Pay It Forward projects in our community. The event has been moved this year to Bristol. We are in need of 100 volunteers to help as "route rooters" along the route.
The Michiana Pay It Forward Foundation
We promote the concept of Paying It Forward with acts of kindness, without expectation of return, in our community. Although we offer monthly Pay It Forward Days for adults, our primary focus is on the youth. We do several speaking engagements at youth oriented groups and clubs to share about how easy it is to spread kindness. We then challenge students to think of a way they can make our community better by Paying It Forward with kindness and to put their idea into action. We offer mini grants to students to help them with their ideas so they can see first hand the impact that a simple act of kindness can have on another
