New Meetup: Race for A Cause

From: Nick M.

Announcing a new Meetup for The Krav Maga Self-Defense Group!

What: Race for A Cause

When: Sunday, October 17,[masked]:00 AM

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

For the 2nd year in a row, Acumen Solutions is hosting Race for a Cause? 8K and 1Mile Fun Run race on Sunday, October 17, 2010 in Arlington, VA with proceeds benefitting the Greenbrier Learning Center (GLC). GLC is a non-profit organization that helps 3rd-5thgraders and their families in South Arlington succeed academically given a host of economic and social challenges. It is a great organization that I am proud to be a part of. More info about Greenbrier can be found at

If you participated or sponsored the race last year ? thank you so much, I hope you will consider sponsoring us again this year.

The Greenbrier Learning Center is one of 12 non-profits designated as beneficiaries of the race. The goal of the race committee is to award $100,000 to the 12 non-profit organizations. The percentage of the total proceeds each organization receives depends directly on the number of participants that designate Greenbrier as the cause they want to sponsor.


We need to get as many people as we can to sign up for the race (even if they don?t run) and choose Greenbrier as their ?Cause?.

For this race, sponsoring and registering are the same thing.

Here is how it works:

1. Go to the race website to register yourself, family, and friends.
The link to the race website is You can register there by clicking on the orange Register Now button.
2. Select Greenbrier as the Cause you would like to support
3. Start training for Race Day!
4. Talk to any people you may know in running clubs and ask them to promote it within their club as well.

Sunday, October 17, 2010 @ 8:00 AM local time
