HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS
The Cellcom Green Bay Marathon’s “Run for a Reason” program is an easy-to-use web-based program that makes fundraising simple. After creating a personal fundraising page complete with personal statement and photo, fundraisers are able to email out their page to friends, family, training partners, and co-workers. People who create a fundraising page and raise $300 or more get ONE FREE ENTRY to any Cellcom Green Bay Marathon event (other than the Relay).
