iRun4Good’s "I've Got Something Better" event will benefit youth substance abuse prevention and treatment. It's time to make a clear statement to our youth they have much to look forward to in their lives as they pursue goals and dreams free of future-destroying substances. Faith-groups, nonprofits, businesses, schools, individuals and local government are all invited to participate. All net proceeds will be donated to benefit youth drug abuse prevention and treatment.
Something for Everyone
- Basketball Open Play
- Whiffle Ball Home Run Derby
- Obstacle Course
- Lawn Games
- Arts and Crafts
- Best Costume Contest for Fun Run Participants
- Motivational Speakers
- Dance Performances
- And more…
Also, a community fair will take place before, during and after the race with information on community services and resources.
Why it’s important
- 80% of Gilbert youth who used marijuana and Rx drugs started before they could legally drive.
- Marijuana oil extract for vape pens and food products (edibles) contain approximately 60% THC levels than in 1970.
- The #1 cause of accidental death in the United States is opioid overdose.
Help us put an end to it.
*This is a USATF Sanctioned event.
