Need some good karma? If so, here’s a race for you.
On Sunday, May 27, 2012 at Seattle’s Seward Park, a lot of good karma is going to take place. The Good Karma 5K is Seattle’s only choose your own charity race. Select from a list of ten charities when you register and a portion of your proceeds will go to that charity. Charities to choose from include: The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Northwest Harvest, Seattle Children’s, Arc of King County, Solid Ground, People for Puget Sound, Arts Fund, USO Puget Sound, Lifelong AIDS Alliance and the Seattle Humane Society.
The charity with the most participants running will also receive an additional bonus donation.

You will feel like a saint by the end of the morning and will have gotten a great workout too!
