2017 Colfax Marathon
Thanks for supporting The Children’s Treehouse Foundation by running in The Colfax Marathon. This is the third year we have had teams run in The Colfax Marathon and our teams get bigger every year!
This year more than 1560 children received the emotional support and coping skills they needed when they learned that their parent or grandparent was diagnosed with cancer. Because of our runners, more and more hospitals are offering the CLIMB® (Children’s Lives Include Moments of Bravery) Program to their cancer patients with children.
The race is May 20-21, 2017 in City Park. Look for us in the Charity Village during and after the race. All runners & walkers can join us for a Celebration Party on Sunday, May 21st to thank everyone who supported us.
This year we are asking runners to set a goal of raising $100 each for The Children’s Treehouse Foundation.
- You can ask your colleagues at work to sponsor you.
- Challenge your friends to give up their specialty coffee for a week and donate it to your effort. Then have them post a picture of their pledge to support you.
- Find “virtual training partners” who will pay you $5 for each week you reach your training goals (running 3 miles a day 4 times a week, for example). Ask them to “train” with you for 3 weeks or 5 weeks or 10 weeks. At the end of each week, let your “training partners” know you hit your training goal.
To make your donation just click on the link below. It will take you to our payment page. Look for “Other PayPal Payments”, click the Pay Now button and enter the amount you are donating.
Thanks for your generosity and for your efforts on behalf of children who have a parent with cancer. While you are running in the race, think of all the kids who,because of you,will get the support and coping skills they need to face the devastating news that mom or dad has cancer.
“Without CLIMB® Cierra would have had difficulty at school or with all of these emotions. I’m recovering, she is recovering; she’s a survivor, I’m a survivor.” [CLIMB® parent]
