A DONATION REMINDER. Running in the heat of summer would not be possible without adequate hydration. How refreshing that first long gulp of chilled fresh water or sports drink tastes at the end of a extended time or distance training session! Imagine not having ready access to water for mere survival (forget about running). Matt Damon is promoting the upcoming release of “Jason Bourne”, the latest action thriller movie in which he has the starring role, and at the same time is helping to raise funds for the charity Water.org. It's listed on the GENEROSITY page as an organization to which you may wish to give the equivalent of a registration fee not spent by USING EARNED RUNS BIBS FOR A RACE.
“For more than twenty years, Water.org has been at the forefront of developing and delivering solutions to the global water crisis. Founded by Gary White and Matt Damon, Water.org pioneers innovative, community-driven and market-based solutions to ensure all people have access to safe water and sanitation; giving women hope, children health and communities a future. To date, Water.org has positively transformed the lives of more than four million people living around the world. “[From the Omaze promotion]
By making a donation people receive multiple entries to a contest in which the grand prize is a chance to party with MD at the film’s Las Vegas premier. In addition, donors who give at specific amount levels are rewarded with other “gifts”, that include movie-related articles like Bourne dog tags, posters, and t-shirts (the most popular items are sold out already). The film is based on the series of novels by author Robert Ludlum and is due to be released July 29 by Universal Pictures.
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
