This coming weekend is the 2nd largest 10K race in the United States, the Bolder Boulder. This will be my first time running this race, and I felt it necessary to write a little about why I am running, and how to give back to the community. Not only do such activities provide us with health benefits, but they can also provide community contributions.
It feels great working for a company that gives back to the community! Many companies have ways of giving back, but as an employee do you give back? BSI and BP2 are involved with a great charity called “There with Care.” As my employer, they have set the tone for our culture. They inspire us to give and come up with ideas to help. My way to give back is to run the Bolder Boulder and take sponsorship donations going toward There with Care.
This forum allows me the opportunity to express my desire to get as many people as possible involved with charities. Whether you have time to volunteer, or just give donations, it is important to help those less fortunate. Maybe you can eat out one less time and give that $5 to a charity. It’s so simple if you think about it, and you will feel better for doing it.
We would love to hear of some ways that you give back to your community.
If you are interested in sponsoring my running in the Bolder Boulder please go to my donation page. Make sure that you put ‘Justin Kraft’ in the tribute information section so that we can track what we raised.
