We encourage everyone to care, and show how easy it is to truly change lives. It feels good to give back and it's smart too!

Like you, we were extremely saddened by the tragic events at the Boston Marathon on Monday. At times like this, we can feel powerless and uncertain about what to do. It's a bit awkward or uncomfortable fundraising today. But there is something we can all do together to help.

We have partnered with a Boston Community Foundation, so today, 5% of your donation will go to The Boston Foundation to support those impacted by the recent tragedy. We hope that this feels right to you.

Alexandria's ONE DAY special to GIVE BACK.

You choose who you'd like to help...

  1. 26.20 to revitalize an Alexandria playground
  2. 26.20 to buy 6 age-appropriate books for a local child
  3. 26.20 to encourage healthy lifestyles and promote self-esteem by providing a Girls on the Run scholarship.

The RunningBrooke Community engages and empowers citizens to "lace up its shoes" for at-risk kids in Northern Virginia through business sponsorships, individual donations, and community running events. In turn, we make grants (100% of all donations and proceeds - Brooke pays for all travel and associated fees) to proven local charities.

We have granted over $200,000.00 to local charities helping kids lead stronger lives: books, fitness, pre-school education, healthy lifestyles, associated services for families. We'd love it if you laced up your shoes too - we need you on our team!

Brooke's skin in the game...

Phase 1: A marathon on each of the 7 continents, in each of the 50 states, and the 5 world marathon majors - over a marathon a month - DONE: October, 2013.

Phase 2: 100 marathons and one million dollars for at-risk NoVA kids - estimated completion: October, 2016.
