The Detroit Free Press Marathon has gone virtual for 2020, and so have we. Join us Sept. 16 through Oct. 18 for the first-ever Run United Virtual Marathon. Virtual marathon participants will log at least 25 miles on their own running or walking. Then, we’ll all complete the final 1.2 miles together with a virtual “race” on Oct. 18.
Registration is $30 and supports our efforts to provide Detroit students with technology they need to learn. We’ll also send you a marathon tech shirt, race bib and other cool swag.
We mobilize the caring power of Detroit and Southeastern Michigan to improve communities and individual lives in measurable and lasting ways.
Our vision, and your part:
Southeastern Michigan is united in building a community of stable households and thriving children.
We connect families to programs and services to help them meet their basic needs of food, housing, health care and family finances. We also work to ensure that starting at birth, families have the tools and support needed to make sure their children start school ready to learn and graduate prepared for success in life.
The funds we raise through the Virtual Marathon support Detroit students so they can focus on learning with working laptops, reliable internet access and other technology supports.
