InStep Physical Therapy and Running Centers has simplified the charity run to its bare essentials: Make a donation. Run.
The Milwaukee-area business will launch its “Run for a Reason” series next month, with the first of 10 monthly outings on Saturday mornings through December. The two- or four-mile runs, one each month, will start at the InStep store at 403 E. Buffalo St. in Milwaukee.
Some larger charity events require participants to gather pledges and raise set amounts of money. Participants in the charity run series will be asked to make a $10 donation.
The proceeds from each fun run will be directed to a different charity. See the list below for dates and charity recepients. All runs start at 8:30 a.m., except the Oct. 30 and Dec. 1 dates. Those start at 6:30 p.m. and Dec. 9:30 a.m., repectively.
