Offical Charity of the Glass City Marathon
03.06.2014
Adopt America has teamed up with the Glass City Marathon this year!  As one of their selected charities, people participating in the marathon in any way can select Adopt America Network as their chosen charity.   Those who are not participating in the marathon can also donate through the GCM website and help us reach our goal of $5,000. It takes an average of $5,000 for Adopt America to help a child or a sibling group of brothers and sisters to find a family. By reaching our goal of $5,000 for our first year as a Glass City Marathon charity, we hope to start a GCM family with one child adopted this year and then add more children each year. Before long, we will have a GCM family that we can celebrate year after year. Please help us start the GCM family this year by choosing Adopt America! http://www.race360.com/giving/charity.asp?cid=34442 http://www.glasscitymarathon.org/
