Set the number of laps you want to run / walk
- Remember each lap is a half mile.
- The shorter course is less than a quarter of a mile.
Start talking to friends and family to receive pledge money for each lap you run.
- If you run two laps at $20 per lap you would need 25 people to sponsor you to win the I-Pod Touch!
$20 per lap x 2 laps=$40 per sponsor x 25 sponsors= I-Pod Touch!
