The government shutdown has hurt millions of Americans -- including our nation's runners, many of whom are unable to run where they want. Let's help them.

The partial government shutdown has hurt millions of Americans, many of them our most vulnerable. Perhaps the most tragic example: our nation's runners, some of whom are unable to go for their runs in national parks. This campaign is intended to raise funds for these runners. Let's all pitch in to help relieve their suffering, until our lawmakers come to their senses and reopen these parks.

The goal of this campaign is to raise $1 million for these victims.

This money will be used for:

  • Shuttle bus rental, to ferry affected runners to parks, trails, etc. that are open for use
  • Grief counselors for all runners who need it
  • Maps of the areas surrounding national parks, so runners can find other places to run until the shutdown ends
  • Individual grants for particularly hard-hit runners, to help ease their suffering
  • Free 30-minute massages to relieve stress
  • Gift cards for affected runners, so they can take "retail therapy" sessions at local running stores to ease their pain

Please consider making a donation. 

No one else is speaking up for these runners. Will you?
