CELEBRATING OUR 11TH ANNIVERSARY, BENEFITTING:
Love2Reach, or L2R, is a training group for walkers and runners 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 2023 are the Asheville Half Marathon & 10k, the New Albany Walking Classic 10k, the Big Bad Wolfe 20 miler/10 miler/5k, and the Nationwide Children's Hospital Columbus Marathon & 1/2 Marathon.
As we train for these races, our charity for 2023 is Nationwide Children's Hospital's Our Our Sleeves movement. 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.
Over the years, we've raised funds for local charities, served meals at Ronald McDonald House, swung hammers with Habitat for Humanity, run with Special Olympians, made Make a Wish dreams come true, and so much more. This year we're celebrating our final season, and we'd love for you to be part of the L2R finale. Let's make a difference together, one last time!
