2. Fundraise By Being Active
Raise money for charity while training for a race! It can be anything from a 5K to an ultra-marathon. Choose a charity or cause you'd like to donate to and choose a goal. you can start fundraising through Facebook, GoFundMe, or another fundraising platform.
3. Leave No Trace
Give back to the earth and your community by picking up litter on your local trails. Bring a friend, or five, and pack out any trash or debris that you see. Make your trail more beautiful while eliminating pollution of water sources and keeping wildlife safe.

Have extra clothes, furniture, toys, or non-perishable foods? Find a local charity or food bank to donate those items to. Some of these organizations even offer free pickup.
