This race came to be from one runner’s need to give back following the Boston Marathon bombings. The proceeds will go to assist the Challenged Athlete’s Foundation.
FROM THE RACE ORGANIZERS
Greenville, North Carolina runner Dionne Evans crossed the Boston Marathon finish line minutes before the first bomb exploded. Upon returning home, Dionne felt compelled to try and make a difference. The goal of creating the Run for One 5K is to raise funds to help amputees get back into an active lifestyle.
