Sarah Aronson, the wife of Conshohocken Mayor Yaniv Aronson, has started a virtual race called Miles for Montco as a way to give back to the community.
Aronson, who is an avid runner and member of Conshy Running, created the virtual race series on behalf of Destination Conshohocken.
The events give local runners the opportunity to run a distance equivalent to any spring race they would have run before the pandemic.
This can be 5K, a Full Marathon, or something in between, and then donate the number of miles as dollars to the MontCoPA COVID-19 Response Fund – the community-wide effort to support the immediate needs of residents hardest hit by the pandemic.
Participants can finish their runs any day at any time in Montgomery County or elsewhere. Once done, they need to upload a photo on social media and tag #MontCoStrong and #MontcoMiles.
Non-runners can also participate by sponsoring a runner and donating miles, so they are financially able to participate in the event.
The virtual series has already commenced and will run through June 1. All of the profits will be donated to the MontCo COVID-19 Response Fund on behalf of Destination Conshohocken.
