Team Blessons since 2017

Whether you are interested in a triathlon, running events including 5k to marathons and beyond, a walking event, a cycling event or any other sporting event, you can be a part of Team Blessons!

Every Team Blessons fundraising page that is setup, makes a HUGE difference in our mission in empowering women through education as we continue to provide them second chances. For example, if you decided that you wanted to participate in a half marathon located anywhere in the world, you could join Team Blessons and help us spread awareness to as many women as possible in learning about our free services, including scholarships.

This overnight, running challenge makes running a team-sport, relay-style and doesn't quit when the going gets tough. In fact, you and your team of 12 (or 6) runners go all day, all night, and all day again (!!!) until each member of your team runs their 3 (or 6) legs.
