Run for a Cause:
Help Manos Reach Children and Families in Need
We are excited to again be a part of 26 for 26, the philanthropy program of the LIVESTRONG Austin Marathon and Half Marathon to be held on February 19, 2012.
Join our team and accomplish two goals at one time: step up to the challenge of running in a Marathon or Half-Marathon and raise money and awareness for an organization that is committed to improving the lives of those most in need in Central Texas. We’ll make sure you have everything you need to achieve your goal, including training support and ideas to meet your fundraising goals.
Be sure to check out our Team Member Benefits listed to the right to see what perks you get for joining the Manos team! If you happened to miss the deadline for the discounted access to professional training, you can check out Hill Country Running for more information about how to participate in another very special training program and see which upcoming events they have planned!
Think you’ve got what it takes? Not sure? That’s OK! When you join our team, we’ll give you the support you need to train and the inspiration you need to reach the finish line.

Volunteers will be needed at the Manos de Cristo water stop during the race. Sign-up starts in late November, and you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to save your spot.
