ABOUT THE AMAZING RAISE 5K AT THE BOULDERS
On Tuesday, September 16, 2014, Brandywine Realty Trust and the Lingerfelt Companies once again will host The Amazing Raise 5k at the Boulders, a run/walk that winds through the beautifully landscaped roads and serene trails of the Boulders Office Park. The event is a true celebration of our community as it kicks off GiveRichmond’s 4th Annual Amazing Raise Giving Challenge, a 36-hour online giving event that has raised more than $3.3 million for local charities over the past three years. The race creates an opportunity for both individuals and teams to not only run for fun and personal wellness, but also campaign for their favorite nonprofit organizations and encourage philanthropy among their peers.
Sponsorships from local businesses will fund grant prizes that will allow runners an opportunity to compete on behalf of their favorite charities. There are both individual and team prizes available. Winners will designate an Amazing Raise charity to receive their prize of up to $1,000. See Celebration for prize details and a list of eligible charities.
