Need a little kick in the pants to go for a run in the next week or two? Or just want to run for a really awesome cause?

Then check out this Tough Mother Virtual Race. You can run a 5k, 10k or half marathon – you choose. The proceeds benefit the Family Lives On Foundation – it’s a wonderful group that works with bereaved children who have lost a parent. Family Lives On helps the child continue traditions they started with their deceased parent. They are based here in Philly but they work with children nationally.

By running this race (distance of your choice!), you’re helping to support Family Lives On. Plus, you get this nifty little medal which doubles as a wine stopper.

This may be one of my favorite medals because earning it meansall sorts of cool things – running, wine & supporting something awesome.

Does anyonewant to sign up and join me?I’m planning on running this next Tuesday, April 12th and I’ll be using the hashtag #FamilyLivesOn – I’d love to have local friends join me and if you arenational, join in and post using the hashtag and linking to the race to encourage others to join and help this worthy cause! Who’s in?
