See Jane Win Challenge

Winning isn't only about crossing that finish line first. Sometimes it's about finding sanity, sharing time with friends, conquering self doubt, accomplishing a PR or just enjoying some good chocolate. Whatever it is for you, we know that when you step up to the start line, you have already won. We hope you are all joining us for the See Jane Run Half Marathon and 5K in 2014.

See Jane Win Challenge There's another way to win as well: When you know that every ounce of effort you put in is also supporting a great cause. I'm writing with the hope you'll join me in the See Jane Win Challenge, a fun opportunity to make your race count for something bigger than you, and all I ask is that you bring a dollar to the race. That's right, one dollar. Then I want you to run faster than me.

Every time I bend over to lace up my shoes, or pay for a race, I feel immense gratitude that I am able to do these things. I’ve watched family and friends suffer from physical disabilities, so I will never take for granted the ability to stand upright, to walk or to run. Running is a blessed gift. It isn’t always easy, it isn’t always fun, but it is always rewarding.

To that end, I want to use my running to give back to the charities supported by See Jane Run in 2014. At each of the four See Jane Run races, I will compete to “win” the 5K. For those who know me, you know I have never won a race. Not even close! This year I will donate one dollar for every person who beats me in the See Jane Run 5K races. And I challenge you to donate one dollar if I beat you. Please bring your one dollar bill to the race. I am going to run my heart out, for me, for you and for the charities we support. I hope you can take a few minutes to check out our charities that need our help in 2014 and do what you can. Things are tough for everyone right now. The economy has taken its toll on our friends, our family and on the causes we hold dear. One dollar from each of us will go a long way.

–Lori Shannon, Owner and Founder, See Jane Run
