If you're looking for a fun way to burn a few extra calories before the big Thanksgiving feast and do something good for the community, we have just the thing.
Eugene Water & Electric Board's Run to Stay Warm, featuring a half-marathon, 10K, 5K and Kids' 400-meter dash, is on Sunday, Nov. 18. The event takes place at EWEB Headquarters, 500 E. 4th Ave, and the flat, scenic course along the Willamette River is accessible to all abilities.
Now in its 12th year, the race has consistently attracted more than 1,000 runners and walkers from across the country and has raised more than $230,000 for EWEB's Customer Care Program, a utility bill assistance fund for limited income individuals.
EWEB budgets approximately $1.5 million annually for Customer Care, but Zulema Duarte, who has coordinated the utility's assistance program for more than nine years, says the need is much greater than what EWEB is able to meet.
"There are lots of folks in our community living paycheck-to-paycheck, and when winter heating bills go up, many of those people struggle to make ends meet," said Zulema. "Receiving help from EWEB's Customer Care Program can make a big difference."
The program provides a $200 bill credit to qualifying EWEB customers, and helps more than 4,000 households every year.
All proceeds from Run to Stay Warm go to EWEB's Customer Care Program. Race registration is open until 10 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17 at runtostaywarm.org.
Your registration includes:
Events kick-off at 8:30 a.m. on Nov. 18, the Sunday before Thanksgiving, with a free Kids' 400- meter dash, led by Sluggo of the Eugene Emeralds.
The Run to Stay Warm is supported by more than a dozen local business and organizations, including:
