Hi Running Start Alumni!

Thank you for participating in the Running Start Alumni GIVE BACK Competition!  We are excited to see you fundraising skills at work.  Keep in mind that you have between now and December 15th to raise as much money as possible for Running Start.  Our goal is $10,000.  If we reach this goal, Running Start will host an alumni reunion in the summer of 2013!  In addition, our top 3 alumni fundraisers will receive:

  • 1st place – 1 ticket to the 7th Annual Women to Watch Awards, including round trip airfare and hotel accommodations.
  • 2nd place – 2 free tickets to Running Start’s 2013 Young Women’s Summit and Alumni Reunion.
  • 3rd pace – 3 one hour mentoring sessions with Running Start’s executive team, Susannah Shakow and Jessica Grounds.

Remember, with your help, Running Start can reach more young women, and we will have the funding to host a high powered weekend of networking and skill building next summer.
