Hi [wpmlfield name=”name”],
As you probably know, a lot has been changing at ARROAutism. What you might not know, is that Sean’s Run has changed to a new place, and is on a new date! This year, Sean’s Run will be on August 8th, and it will be at Catlin Gabel School.
Historically, Sean’s Run was held on the last Saturday in April. That worked OK, and it fit into the meme of Autism Awareness month. Over time, more and more Autism events are being packed into the month of April. At the same time, many runners were flocking to Eugene that same weekend. So, after considerable thought, a lot of searching, and a lot of asking, we finally came up with this new plan.
And that’s where you come in! Now that we have the place (Catlin Gabel School), and the date (August 8th, 2015) we need YOU! Here are some of the things you can do :
- Register for Sean’s Run
- There are four categories : 5K Walk, 5K Run, 10K Run, and a Kids Run
- Get $5 off with this special promotional code : supporter
- Spread the Word!
- email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 971-258-2360 and ask about special coupon codes you can use to spread the word to your customers.
What is ARROAutism doing with the money raised?
There’s a lot we’d like to do with the money we raise from each and every fundraiser. Right now, most of the money raised is being used for the ARROAutism Family Holiday Assistance Project, which distributes gift cards from New Seasons Markets and Fred Meyers to Autism Families in Oregon that have been identified as most in need by County Case Workers.
But there’s a lot more that we have planned. None of it can happen, though, without you!
Do I have to Run at Sean’s Run?
Not at all. We have play areas, vendors, and, weather permitting, even access to a firepit for grilling! So, run or walk, you can grab the family and come on up and enjoy a picnic! While you’re there you can even enter for raffles, and bid on auction items!
