6 Reasons to Run for Charity

6 Reasons to Run for Charity

By: Bright Pink | National Breast and Ovarian Health Nonprofit

Want to run a race but having a hard time committing? Run for a charity you admire! Here are 6 reasons why running for charity is the best way to cross the finish line.

Benefits of Running for Charity

The Race Becomes Personal

When you run for charity, the race will automatically mean more. When you have the support of an organization cheering you on, you will be more motivated to train hard, fundraise and perform to the best of your ability on race day.

You’ll Help Others in the Process

Many charities receive a majority of their funding through marathons or other team-oriented events. At Bright Pink, runners join in our mission to end breast and ovarian cancer through prevention and early detection by raising funds that fuel our life-saving educational programs.

It’s a Great Way to Meet New Friends

Running for a specific charity will connect you to a large community of like-minded individuals. Many charities offer weekly running clubs where you can mix and mingle with fellow runners who support the same cause.

Your Body Will Thank You

Running is an excellent way to keep your physical and mental health in tip-top shape. When running for charity, you will simultaneously improve your health while advocating for the good of others.

The Perks

We’re talking free gym memberships, fundraising and personal support, swag bags and more. Charities often partner with brands and gyms, so their runners have full access to a more enjoyable and stress-free experience than going solo.

You’ll be a Part of Something Bigger

While completing any race is a huge personal accomplishment, the pride of knowing you helped others throughout the process is a feeling that will last a lifetime. You’ll also have a deeper connection to an organization that you can support for years to come!
