Story

Hi, I am Alex, the Program Director at Common Ground.  

For the past two years I have been wanting to complete a ½ marathon. This year I was going to sign up for an organized run for motivation, but then all events were canceled due to the quarantine. Common Ground has decided to put on a race in June not only to help me with my goals, but as a way to raise money in order to continue programming. I invite you and all of your friends to join me to complete your own personal challenges as I attempt to complete mine. Walk, run, or roll whatever distance you choose. As a participant in this challenge you will receive an event sticker, a letter of completion from our participants, as well as group communication and motivation on our facebook page. I will be posting my own milestones and challenges; I encourage each of you to do the same. If interested, you can share your route, total mileage, and completion time to our facebook page.  Although we can’t gather together, we can still rally together as a community.

Common Ground Outdoor Adventures is a non-profit organization in Northern, Utah that provides life-enhancing outdoor recreation for youths and adults with disabilities. At CGOA we are committed to an inclusive environment. We want to do all we can to remove barriers and enhance people’s lives through recreational experiences, while reducing the stereotypes society has about people with disabilities. During these times of COVID-19 we are doing everything we can to stay in communication with our clients to encourage them to stay happy and healthy during these trying times. 

Please help us continue our mission by joining and sharing this event.

Alex, $5/mile, but you can double it if you complete the half-marathon in 2:02, which is approximately the record for the whole marathon. Start training! David & Maydelin

We are not runners but we pledge to hike a half-marathon to our local Genoa Peak (Nevada). Hopefully the snow will be gone by June 12. We support Common Ground and all of their programs.
