Run For Japan 日本のために走ろう

Tomorrow, the Green Girl will be dedicating her St. Patrick's Day Trail Half Marathon to the victims and survivors of the Japan earthquake and tsunami by participating in the Run For Japan challenge.

I will be doing this along with two Sole Runners, Barb and Miyuki.

Run For Japan's goal is to cover the circumference of the earth, 24,901 miles, in 28 days.

Run For Japan is asking runners to dedicate one run to the people of Japan and donate at least one unit of their home currency per mile. The hope is that there will at least one run dedicated from every country in the world.

  2. That's a great way to raise some funds. I'll do this for one of my runs this weekend too.

  4. That's a great idea! I can't run (booo) but I did purchase a top at Forever21.com, where ALL purchases yesterday went to those in Japan.

  7. Great Idea...I'm going to see if I can retroactively dedicate (as in, from my run this morning), as it may be a few more days before I can run again.
