Making Your Miles More Meaningful – Charity Awareness Day

Having charity awareness creates a desire to help others and by this, enables a person to think of ways and means to inspire more and more people to have awareness of the world around them.  As more become aware, they are better able to reach out, help, and share what they have to those who are in need. Hence, reaching out and creating a big difference in other people’s lives.

I was recently shocked to learn that a 5 time Honda LA Marathon runner didn’t know there was an Official Charity Program associated with the Honda LA marathon. …thus the Official Charity Awareness Day was born! 

On Wednesday, September 22, 2010 approximately 50+ runners representing our 65 Official Charities will run all or part the 2011 Honda LA Marathon course. They will be starting at Dodger Stadium at 7:00am and finishing in Santa Monica approximately around 1:00pm. There will be pit stops along the way. They are taking on this challenge to bring charity awareness to all of Los Angeles. If you are on or near the route feel free to come on out and join in or just give a cheer!

 Start @ Dodger Stadium / 7:00am 

Mile 6.5 @ Sunset & Mohawk  / 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.

Mile 13 @ Sunset & Fairfax  / 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. 

Mile 19.5 @ Santa Monica & Veteran   /  10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Finish @ Santa Monica & California  / Noon to 1:30 p.m.

Being charitably aware brings about a sense of fulfillment to those who turn their desire to actions and thus enrich the lives of those who are in need!
