INARF member Opportunity Enterprises (OE) recently had its 100th runner committing to participate in the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon on November 7th. Persons who sign up to be an OE Runner this month will be entered for a chance to win a Fitbit Flex. In joining the team, runners have the option to complete the full marathon, the half-marathon or a 5k.
“We hope to recruit about 300 runners by partnering with this in-state race that offers more than just the marathon. Our fundraising minimum for runners will be lowered from the 2014 season, we’ll be able to create new traditions, and this will draw a bigger group of community members out to get involved in Opportunity Enterprises and what we do,” said Lindsay Ellis, OE’s Development Associate and the OE Runners Team Coordinator. “We’re extremely excited, and the buzz coming from our former and current runners only supports the fact that this is the right decision for OE.”
Along with the commitment form, OE has posted this FAQ sheetand an incentives sheet for people who are not yet familiar with the event. Any other questions and comments can be directed to Lindsay Ellis (firstname.lastname@example.org / 219-464-9621 ext. 239).
