Maine Marathon and Through These Doors
Are you ready to lace up those running shoes? Have you considered running a marathon, half marathon, or relay (up to 4 on a team)? If so, you can do so on behalf of TTD! What does that mean?
Head on over to https://mainemarathon.com to register! When you sign up, fill out all of the race details. Page 3 of the sign-up process will give you the option to choose “fundraiser”. You are now a charity bib runner! You would then select Through These Doors from the drop-down menu: “Support a Charity”.
There is a minimum of $200 to raise – all of which goes to TTD! You can increase this goal, select goal options, create a phrase or nickname or tagline, create your own URL for your donor page (or let RunSignUp set up one automatically), optionally edit the default fundraiser message (created by the charity), upload a picture or another image, optionally make a donation and click on “continue.”
At the end of the process, you hit “next page” to continue the registration process.
Register today to start fundraising!
