Miles That Matter

//Miles That Matter

Lots of Cincinnatians are getting ready for the Flying Pig Marathon, but that would be a recovery run for our board member, George, who is running the Strolling Jim in Tennessee – a whopping 40.6 miles!

George has been detailing his training on Facebook at Ultra for CUB – be sure to check it out and like the page.  It’s a fascinating look at training for an ultra event.  You don’t want to miss the countdown to race day.!/pages/Ultra-for-CUB/313024815385516

Show your support too by donating in honor of George.  On our donate page, choose Ultra for CUB.

Consider sponsoring a certain amount for each mile:

$2 a mile: $81.20
This pays for a room and meals for a woman in our Off the Streets program.

$3 a mile: $121.80
This covers the cost of consumables in a classroom – paper, crayons, glue, etc. – for one day.

$5 a mile: $203.00
This pays for a window air conditioner and college-dorm size refrigerator for a room at the Anna Louise Inn.

$8 a mile: $324.80
This pays for a mattress and bedding for a resident at the Anna Louise Inn.

$10 a mile: $406.00
This pays for a learning rug at one of our preschools.

Be sure to read this March Soapbox with an article featuring George.
