There’s still time to join the PAL Squad

There’s still time to join the PAL Squad

We are now 101 days away from the 2021 PeaceHealth AppleTree Marathon and there’s still time to join the PAL Squad, sponsored by our friends at iQ Credit Union!

The PAL Squad is a group of individuals who believe in the mission of PAL: “to promote positive relationships between law enforcement and youth.” And together as the PAL Squad, we raise money to support PAL and it’s mission. WHY Racing is working hard to offer an incredible run! You’ll have options for a sunset 5k, half marathon, full marathon, or an option to run any of those lengths virtually.

The goal for the PAL squad this year is to raise $25,000 and if we had 50 folx sign up, that would only be an average $500 per person. You even get a limited edition PAL Squad running shirt with our manifesto on the back. Additionally, we run a little competition to see who raises the most money, which often includes an apple pie baked by our very own Vancouver Mayor! We have several spots open.

If you’d like to join the PAL Squad and are committed to attempting to raise $500 for PAL, just email Jenny at and she will get you your code so you can sign-up for FREE. Best part? By joining the PAL Squad you’re challenging yourself in 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 hope you consider joining the iQ CU 2021 PAL Squad and you don’t have to be law enforcement to do so. As I mentioned earlier we still have several spots left. You can learn more about the PAL Squad by visiting our Facebook page here or by emailing Jenny at
