The Seattle Marathon Association is thrilled to partner with Random Acts and the cast of the CW’s Supernatural at this year’s event. Random Acts is a global, charitable organization founded by Supernatural television actor Misha Collins and dedicated to conquering the world, one random act of kindness at a time. From delivering flowers to a nursing home to delivering aid after a crisis, Random Acts’ supporters brighten the world and make a difference every day in hundreds of countries.
Random Acts’ largest annual fundraiser is Endure 4 Kindness, a weekend-long event that challenges supporters to endure an activity for a sustained period.
This year, Supernatural stars Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Rob Benedict, Rachel Miner, Adam Fergus and Jason Manns are banding together to support Endure 4 Kindness by running in the Amica Insurance Seattle Marathon to raise funds to alleviate childhood hunger in food insecure areas around the globe.
Additionally, Random Acts staff and supporters will be collecting non-perishable food bank donations at the Expo table on Saturday, November 24, for Move for Hunger.
BONUS: Anyone who donates a minimum of $10 to Random Acts, can email firstname.lastname@example.org for a discount on their marathon registration.
