The Virginia 10 Miler is one of the most iconic races in central Virginia, drawing participation from numerous professional athletes and Olympians over the years. Since 1974, the Virginia 10 Miler has grown to include over 3,300 finishers in 2019. Past event pictures and updates can be found on the 10 Miler's social media pages. 2020 race week festivities are to be announced, but last year they included a downtown festival and children's fun run on Friday, live music on the course (a tradition), and a post-race celebration the day after the race.
1. SIGN UP FOR THE RACE
Sign up on the Virginia 10 Miler Website for your event (10 miler, 4 mile run or 4 mile walk). *Note: 2020 registration opens May 1*
2. START A FUNDRAISING PAGE
Create your own fundraising page through FlipCause. Friends and family can give directly and securely to Global Partners, and you can easily track your progress. This step is the ONLY WAY to officially join the Running Water team. We challenge you to set a goal of raising at least $100 for every mile run, or funding an entire well for $2600. Set up the page under your name or a team name (if you plan to pool fundraising with others).
ABOUT THE CAUSE
Global Partners has installed 300 fresh water wells from 2013 to January of 2020. We thank God for the opportunity to share the gift of life with so many villages in India, and most recently Uganda. We partner with local pastors to find villages most in need. After each well is installed, a dedication celebration is held. These celebrations are filled with joy, singing, dancing, and laughter!
