Give $26 to Sierra Club - $1 for each mile we'll run

Megan Rast & Dan Payne

Megan Rast & Dan Payne

We met because of our shared passion for protecting our public lands. As volunteers with the Sierra Club in Colorado, we have spent the last year in meetings, trainings, and worked together on events and campaigns that help ensure this Administration keeps its hands off our lands and help make the outdoors accessible to all. And now we're taking it a step further....running many steps further in fact.

The funds you donate will enable the Sierra Club to continue this important work and help keep us motivated on the 13.1 miles we will be running August 4th.

Dan says: "To know me is to know that I'm a runner. I run half marathons, but I've never connected my passion for Sierra Club with one of them and excited to support such an impactful organization"

Megan says: "I've been called an eco-nerd, and done environmental work for 15 years all over the world. After November 2016, I've had the opportunity to volunteer hundreds of hours with Sierra Club and have seen for myself that their grassroots organizing power is making a difference on all the issues we care about most. Also, if you're friends with me you know I ran a marathon once, travel a lot...what you probably don't know is that since that marathon I've not run much...because I travel a ton. I'm running this half at altitude (!) because I want to be well enough for the day where we're not just fighting to protect these marvelous public lands from attack but enjoying and exploring them as they are meant to be for us and future generations."

We need 77 people to give $26 to reach our fundraising goal. Will you help us help Sierra Club at this critical moment?
