Below are the details to our 1st Charity focused event. It was a great success and really gets the momentum for Workaddict(s) to make a community impact in 2018.
As you know, workaddict(s) are all about moving and working, pushing each other beyond our excuses and our limits. The group is also focused on fun and community. All of those ideas come together here.
We’ve discussed having an event(s) as a way to give back to the communities we’re in. This event is sort of a soft version of that. Ragnar and REI have joined together to get people outside on Jan. 31 — in the dark, in the cold, with “no buts.” workaddict(s) in other locations are welcome to participate as well, similar to the virtual option for our New Year’s Day WORKstravaganza. We will meet at the Prime Meridian Marker near the amphitheater, as we did on New Year’s Day.
As part of this run, if you sign up on http://www.nobutsnightrun.com/, REI will donate $1 to the American Hiking Society (up to $10,000), the only national organization that promotes and protects foot trails, their surrounding natural areas, and the hiking experience. Ideally, we’ll be able to do something similar in future on our own for local charities and such in our communities.
The event is free, but we ask that you register and complete a waiver at Eventbrite to participate — https://www.eventbrite.com/e/workaddicts-no-buts-night-run-registration-42185897154. For more information, visit http://www.nobutsnightrun.com/.
