Need a fitness goal? Inspiration? Register for a Nonprofit Walk/Run/Zumbathon, etc!

As part of our May 2015 discussion group, YNPs talked about the need to set fitness goals and train around them. If you’re going to start a Couch to 5K program, why not sign up for a race that benefits one of your favorite organizations? Need motivation to get out on two wheels? Register for a charity ride. Mixing fitness and fundraising is a win-win in the nonprofit world!
