Sometimes as we indulge ourselves in the sport of ultrarunning we overlook opportunities to help others. Over the years The Old Goat Runnerís have been invited to participate in fund raising efforts for different charities. Via our web site and through direct appeals we have contributed to funding assistants at Chilean Orphanages, helped fund Cancer research, and purchased defibrillators for high school athletic departments. This year we have added the Bella Tucker Fund.
The mission of the wounded warriors Project is to raise awareness and enlist the publicís aid for the needs of severely injured service men and women. To help severely injured service members aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of these Warriors. Since 2009 we have raised over $38,000 in pledges and donations.
Your fundraising efforts will benefit the non-profit Lorenzen Cancer Foundation, whose mission is to raise awareness, increase education and support research aimed at changing the tragic human relationship to pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer is the most aggressive of the cancers - time from diagnosis to demise is typically measured in weeks and it the least funded of the major cancers.
Megan Myers died during a cross country meet. Her mother started the fund to provide automatic defibrillators for high school athletic departments, to provide cardiac screening, and to provide cross-country scholarships. In 2008 Nanny Goat runners raised over $3200 in support of this fund
