L2R: Charity Training Group

Love2Reach, or L2R, is a training group for walkers, runners, and triathletes who want to give back to their community. We train, we fundraise, and we have a lot of fun along the way. Our goal events for 2020 are the Milwaukee Brewers Mini Marathon weekend (5k, 10k, or half marathon), the New Albany Walking Classic (10k), and the NCH Columbus Marathon & Half Marathon.
As we train for these races, our charity for 2020 is Directions for Youth & Families. Registration for L2R is $40, which covers our group expenses. After that, 100% of the funds that we raise go towards our chosen charity each year. If you’d like to learn more about L2R and how you can reach your own goals, join us for an info session this spring:
