Run With Ferguson in 2015

Since 2010, the Ferguson Twilight Run has been bringing together members of our community – men, women, black, white, young, old, rich, poor – for one purpose, to cross the finish line together. At this time, our hearts are hurting for one another. We are hurting for the family and friends of Michael Brown, for the loved ones of our law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty, for our friends and neighbors who have experienced violence while working to better the lives of each other, and for our community members whose businesses and livelihoods have been damaged. These are deep wounds that cannot be healed by a finish line medal, but the Ferguson Twilight Run helps us all take a step together in the right direction.

Your understanding and support is needed as we rebuild our respect and trust among one another and rebuild our community. We ask that you join us in helping and encouraging our friends, family, neighbors and strangers to conquer the finish line as well as our everyday struggles. Our community is faced with challenges that are larger than any of us can solve on our own, but we are working together to better ourselves and our Ferguson community.

The Ferguson Twilight Run is the definition of a community event, led by our neighbors for our neighbors. The people who walk, run, wheel in a chair, or ride in a stroller in the Ferguson Twilight Run are an economically and racially diverse group of finish line crossers. We have all trained hard to cross the finish line, and we have encouraged our family, our friends and ourselves to lead healthier lifestyles along the way. We have sponsored school teams so that all young people can train together and cross the finish line together, and we have donated to the causes of community champions so that all residents of North St. Louis County can have safe, convenient and enjoyable opportunities to be physically active.

We ask for your patience as we continue to work to improve the health and wellbeing of our neighbors and our community. We ask for your support in joining us as we train to cross the finish line together and inspire one another to live more healthy, active, respectful and trusting lifestyles.
