Run for Life is very excited to be bringing the Cambridge Classic Mile back in 2013!
The Classic Mile Team is working very hard to bring another very exciting event this year. The final race this year will be head lined by a 4 Minute Mile attempt by Cambridge’s own Nathan Brannen.
One of the highlights of last years classic mile was the Social Media Mile where we enlisted some local runners, active in social media, to help raise awareness and funds for the Herrle Family. We were blessed to have some great people come out and raise some funds. Here is a video of the event.
This year we are asking people to help us bring attention to getting kids active in classrooms. We have long supported the work of Stuart Shankar and John Ratey in self regulation. So we will ask our runners in the Social Media Mile to help us raise some awareness of our Spin Bike Program in elementary schools. For those that feel really ambitious they can even pledge to raise the $600 it costs to help get one more of these bikes into local class rooms.
Here is John Ratey’s TEDx talkRead more...
