To Do: Gener8tion Run

Run for someone who has inspired YOU!

Sure it’s totally awesome to do a run in support of your favorite charity. But how awesome would it be to chose a role model, anyone from your sister to the president, and run to honor their impact on your life? The Gener8tion Run was created to do just that.

You chose between the 8K run or .8K walk through the Philadelpha Navy Yard to honor a person who has had a great influence on your life. Funds raised from this event will benefit Students Run Philly Style, a program that combines mentorship with long-distance running. There will be a 20-minute yoga session just before the race, and cash prizes will be awarded to the top male and female runners. Find out more and register here.

$35 for the run, $15 for the walk, April 13th at 8 a.m., Philadelphia Navy Yard, 4747 South Broad Street, Philadelphia.
