Door County Half Marathon & 5K
MAY 6 | 10 AM | PENINSULA STATE PARK
Fundraising Goal: $10,000
“Team Forge” (a rambling but dedicated group of Clearing enthusiasts) will again be running, walking and crawling in the Door County Half Marathon & 5K at Peninsula State Park on Saturday, May 6 to raise money for the new Blacksmith Forge & Metals Studio at The Clearing.
Last year, you helped Team Forge CRUSH our fund-raising goal of $10,000 by donating over $12,000 for the Forge! This year, Team Forge’s relatively warm and mild training ground has allowed us to train harder and eat more oatmeal. The result? We’re gonna do it again! Our 2017 fundraising goal is $10,000! Yup, it’s a lofty goal, but with your help Team Forge will again give The Clearing’s Forge and Metals Studio one more big boost.
In the past four years, YOU have helped Team Forge raise an incredible $30,000! We hope you will help us meet our fundraising goal by making a donation or pledge online or by giving us a call today!
Team Forge will continue to run through whatever old man winter decides to throw at Door County, but your donations and pledges help us run and walk a little faster and feel a little warmer.
Thanks again for your continued support of life-long learning and creativity at The Clearing!
“Team Forge” Members: Anka (5k), Bruce (5k), Carolyn (5k), Cindy (5k), Curt (half), Erik (half), Glenna (5k), Jason (half), Mary Ann (5k), Melinda (5k), Mike (5k), Randy (half), Ron (half), Sara (half), Stefan (5k), Tammy (5k), Wendy (5k), Yvonne (5k)
Did You Know? We don’t need big donations to meet our goal, but every donation matters! Think about pledging $2 or $3 dollars per mile. (A half marathon is 13.1 miles.) Last year, 70% of Team Forge donations and pledges were only $2 or $3 per mile. Did we already mention that every donation matters?! Donate or Pledge Today!
Did You Also Know? Your Team Forge donation or pledge doesn’t have to go toward the Forge. Your donation can also support The Clearing’s Endowment Fund, Scholarship Fund or General Fund. Simply complete the donation form and leave a note in the comments area telling us where you would like your donation to go! Thank you!
And Remember…The Clearing is a not-for-profit corporation under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to The Clearing are tax-deductible.
p.s. Interested in joining “Team Forge”? We’d love to have you running, walking or cheering by our side on May 6th! Get on board by giving Erik a call at The Clearing.
