Grab a Friend and Do Some Good! This is the theme of our Run 4 Kids 2012 Team! Last year 133 runners, walkers and rely teams made a commitment to go beyond finishing the Missoula Marathon and dedicated themselves to ensure that kids in the Youth Homes have the help, care and support they need to heal and become healthy.

This year we are back again and we hope that you will consider joining the Run 4 Kids Team! Through our generous team sponsor, Montana Rail Link, you will receive free registration for the full, half or relay in the Missoula Marathon on July 8th. You will also receive half off marathon (full or half) training with our partner Run Wild Missoula. The first day of training is Sunday, March 4th, so be sure and mark your calendar!

As a member of the Run 4 Kids Team you make a commitment to fundraise $500 (individuals) or $750 (partners, team of 2). We have a great new on-line fundraising tool,, or you can collect cash and checks from your supporters. And we promise to keep you motivated, encouraged and supported as you train and fundraise over the next several months.

Every team member will receive a high performance race shirt or singlet for race day, enjoy fun team gatherings, are eligible for top fundraising prizes and will share in the great feeling of helping vulnerable kids in our community. As an added bonus for those who exceed their fundraising goal and raise $1,000 (or more) you will get a special half zip embroidered training jacket to showcase your accomplishment.

Please check out our team website for more information. If you are ready to join us, download your form, send it back and look for a confirmation email from us. The first 100 people to join the team get a great training hat from Head Sweats compliments of Kalkstein, Johnson & Dye and Prudential Montana, so don’t delay!

We hope that you will “Grab a Friend and Do Some Good” once again for the Run 4 Kids Team. And for every friend that you recruit, you’ll be entered into a drawing for great prizes! Our team is a success because of people like you.  We hope you’ll join the Run 4 Kids 2012 Team!
