So sorry everyone. We will NOT be having a Micro Marathon 2.62 on January 1, 2017.
Organizing the event is a personal effort with the help of friends and family. Due to our schedule and commitments, we are not able to have the time to coordinate the race. We appreciate all your support. We hope to be back again soon!
Your Micro Marathon dollars purchased 7 ipads (and accessories) for Clackamas County DHS Foster Care!
2016 Micro Marathon was a huge success. I do believe we positively impacted kids in Foster care, right inside our community.
We appreciate our friends, family and supporters who made this happen. We hope you will join us for Micro Marathon 2017. Email us if you’d like to be reminded about registration information for next year.
Cheers to you in 2016!
Back of ipad is engraved, “Donated to Clackamas County DHS Love: Micro Marathon Team 2016“
