2020 PAL Squad

We know it is only June and we also know we have no idea where we will be in September. BUT what we do know is that the 2020 PeaceHealth AppleTree Marathon WILL happen. It may be virtual and may look different from the first two years; but WHY Racing is committed to our community and they are committed to making sure this run happens one way or another.

That means you can still join the PAL Squad and help raise money for us! We are currently 19 strong and have space for 31 more members. If we can recruit 31 more folks and each raises an average of $500, that will be $25,000 for PAL. And if those 50 PAL Squad members were to say raise an average of $600 each, we would match our record from last year!

If you’d like to join the PAL Squad and are committed to attempting to raise $500 for PAL, just email Jenny at jenny.thompson@cityofvancouver.us and she will get you your code so you can sign-up for FREE.

Joining the PAL Squad is pretty fun. You get to challenge yourself two ways: 1) by running at race at the length of your choice (5k, half marathon, or full marathon) and 2) by raising money for a local nonprofit. We even have a little competition among the members to see who raises the most.

We hope you consider joining the 2020 PAL Squad and you don’t have to be law enforcement to do so. As I mentioned earlier we still have 31 spots left. You can learn more about the PAL Squad by visiting our Facebook page here or by emailing Jenny at jenny.thompson@cityofvancouver.us.
