Juggalos Wanted For Motor City Half Marathon And 5K!


Despite our unjustly negative reputation, we juggalos are actually fairly well known for our acts of kindness towards each other and even non-juggalo strangers. We care about the well-being of other people, and this has become more clear over the past year or so with various charity events and such. For example, Violent J‘s solo tour a couple months back was done solely for the purpose of raising funds for sick children. Well, the Duke Of The Wicked is not the only one capable of doing extensive good for others. In fact, there is a big event coming up that juggalos can involve themselves in.

A half marathon and 5K known as the Motor City Half Marathon will once again be held in Detroit, Michigan. Recently, a fellow juggalette by the name of Lisa Tillman put together a fundraiser for this event. All money raised from the marathon and through Lisa’s fundraiser will be used to benefit the wonderful Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation. Please read the following story of the hospital and its’ legacy:

Since 1886, the Children’s Hospital of Michigan has been dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to children and adolescents in a caring, efficient and family-centered environment. A proud member of the Detroit Medical Center (DMC), the Children’s Hospital of Michigan is the first and largest children’s hospital in the state. This 228-bed facility has an international reputation in pediatric medicine, surgery and research, training more pediatricians than any other facility in Michigan.

Lisa is asking for the help of any and all juggalos! A total of $50 has been raised so far for her fundraiser, so if you can give anything at all, please do not hesitate to check out the official fund page! If you attend the actual event, you can either run or walk, so even if you’ve never done a half marathon before, you can still participate. For those of you who don’t already know, 5K is equal to 3.1 miles. However, when it is for the benefit of sick children, the number of miles does not matter. What does matter is the heart and soul behind it. Therefore, if you would like to participate in this incredible event, be sure to register for the half today.

The Motor City Half Marathon happens on August 21, 2016. Show everyone that juggalos have heart and make sure to stop by! Also, once you’re finished lending a helping hand to those in need, know that there will be one super fresh after party going down! The location of the party is still being decided, but no matter where it is, know that both Rude Boy and DJ Carlito will be there! They will also be at the marathon itself.

We hope to see as many juggalos out there as possible! Whoop Whoop!
