2017-11-22 - Thank you for running!

randy freepFeeling grateful back here at RF Events' headquarters as we come into the home stretch of the event year. We can't thank you enough for your support of our events and making it possible for us to live out our passion. To thank you for your loyalty, we are very excited to reward you in 2018 and beyond with our "Run More, Earn More" program, where you will get a $20 event credit for every $150 spent on event entries. It's a simple program with nothing to do on your part, we'll keep track, just run any event on this list and earn! More runners will line up tomorrow to run in a race than any other day of the year! The Turkey Trot is a wonderful, fun, family, fitness tradition that lets us earn our spot at the table and on the couch. Weather you run in Downtown Ann Arbor, Detroit or in any of the other thousands of Turkey Trots across America, you will be setting a fun, fitness example those on the sidelines, perhaps creating the spark and giving the gift of running to others.

Run, laugh, smile and hug each other to keep warm tomorrow,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who just loves Thanksgiving day.

PS: Because of your support, we have made donations from the bottom line of our events this year to: Karen's Trail, The Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, The March of Dimes, University Prep High School of Detroit, The John Rogucki foundation, C.S. Mott Children's Hospital Save a Heart Program, The Novi Youth Council, The Ice Age Trail, The Riverland Conservancy, Angleman Syndrome Foundation, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, The Pinckney Trail Riders Association, Jackson Christian Athletics, Dexter Senior Center, Faith in Action, The Boy Scouts of America and many other worthwhile organizations. We especially thank those of you who made thousands of dollars of additional donations to these great organizations, you are amazing!
