Runyan to Run for Local Cause in New York City Marathon


Byline: The Register-Guard

World-class runner and Eugene native Marla Runyan will run for more than victory in the New York City Marathon on Nov. 2.

She'll be raising money for Committed Partners for Youth, a nonprofit Eugene group that pairs adult mentors with youth offenders in a running program aimed at helping troubled young people turn their lives around.

International financial services giant ING is sponsoring Runyan's effort through its "Run For Something Better" program, a three-year fund raising effort to encourage health and fitness and to raise money for local projects.

Elite runners Lornah Kiplagat of the Netherlands, Jen Rhines of the United States, and Ludmila Petrova of Russia also are competing under the ING program.

Each will run for a separate charitable cause. Just how much Runyan raises for the Eugene program will depend on where she finishes in the marathon.

Runyan is familiar with the Committed Partners for Youth program because her former coach, Mike Manley, helped start the local running-based mentorship project and several of Runyan's friends are among the 30 adults who volunteer, said Susie Walsh, executive director of Committed Partners for Youth.
