Race preview: Team RWB’s Charity 5k & 8k Run/Walk for CCFA [5/9/2015]


This Saturday, the local Team Red White & Blue chapter (Portland/Salem/Bend/JBLM/Seattle) is organizing a charity 5k & 8k run/walk event for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America, hosted by South Pacific Rum Bar and Grill. Team RWB is an amazing nonprofit that enriches the lives of veterans–you’ve probably seen them at many local running events, carrying Old Glory the entire way! The local RWB chapter members have friends and family affected by forms of inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s and Colitis, and they are raising money in their honor through this event. The untimed event has a flat and easy course (be aware that it will be open to traffic). This is a great venue too–very family friendly, and the owner has always been a gracious host for hordes of sweaty runners. All $15 of the registration fee goes directly to CCFA, and will include a raffle ticket for prizes such as race entries and swag and 1 beer/beverage ticket. Additionally, a portion of food purchases will be donated by South Pacific Rum Bar & Grill to CCFA.

I love that this is an awesome opportunity for the community to get together, put in some miles, and raise money for a good cause!
