Description (Brief)

Marathons, races, walks, and rides dot the annual calendars of nearly every major American city. Raising money while enjoying an activity is not new, but the level and scope of participation has increased markedly in the late 1900s. While some question if the cost of these events cut too much into the amounts raised, many participants describe a desire to do more than just write a check.
