Run for a Cause
The featured charity will be the Annapolis Police Foundation, whose mission is to support Annapolis police officers in need and support police outreach in the community.
CSE will create the “Charity Chaser” which will feature an Annapolis police officer running in the event. The Annapolis Running Festival will make a donation for every runner that the “Charity Chaser” passes along the course. “On behalf of the Annapolis Police Foundation, we are excited to be involved with the event and look forward to having the “charity chaser” promotion raise some funds for the foundation and shine a light on the good works that our officers and foundation do in the community” said Annapolis Police Foundation Chairman Brian Finan.
The half-marathon route will cover a 1.5 mile stretch of the B&A Trail in a picturesque out-and-back portion of the race route. We appreciate the access to the trail and invite you to make a donation toward this wonderful cause.
The Friends of Anne Arundel County Trails is a 501 (c) 3, all volunteer organization dedicated to promoting, protecting and enhancing our county trails. Since our incorporation over 20 years ago, we have worked closely with the Anne Arundel County Department of Recreation and Parks. In order to further our mission, we coordinate with various community groups, businesses, churches and individuals. We have created and monitored gardens and flowerbeds, installed rain gardens, a BayScape project, cleared debris, mulched, pruned, added a Legacy Garden and one specifically for pets, and art such as Planet Walk to spots along the BWI Trail, the B&A, Broadneck, WB&A and South Shore Trails. With 41.8 miles and more being added each year, your contribution will help further our impact, helping maintain the beauty of our trails for years to come.
CSE will be working with a number of local charities in Annapolis and the Anne Arundel County area to raise funds through the event. If your organization would like to be part of the Annapolis Running Festival, please email our Charity Team Coordinator Kimber Raheb at firstname.lastname@example.org
