Week 2 of the Marathon a Day Challenge and S.A.F.E House fundraiser is in the books, and it's official, the Brujos are lean (for rugby players), mean (really they're swethearts), running machines! In two weeks the Brujos, as a team, have racked up 595.66 miles, and have raised $831 for S.A.F.E House. That's not quite halfway to the stated goal of $2500, and with only two weeks left, the Brujos have some ground to make up in the fundraising department. So keep running everybody! And if you haven't donated, please do, and if you know someone who might want to support the worthy cause of assisting those affected by domestic violence, please get them to donate as well!
Consider sponsoring your favorite Brujo for a day by pledging to donate $1 for every mile run (trust us, it won't be a substantial financial undertaking).
Every little bit helps!
The idea is simple, as a team the Brujos, their family, and even their supporters goal is to run a marathon (that's 26.22 miles for all you non-long distance runners out there.) everyday. You can show your support for this effort by making a donation to SAFE House. As you may know, the Covid-19 epidemic has led to an increase in domestic violence, your contribution to SAFE House will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500, every little bit helps.
100% of the money raised will go directly to SAFE House.
Everyday we will be documenting and sharing our runs on this page in our quest to run a marathon a day.
So let's lace up those running shoes, fire up those run trackers, and get running!
Thank you for your support!

Updated Sandia 7's Tournament information:
Because USA Rugby sanctioned events are officially postponed/cancelled through the end of May, this year's Sandia 7's tournament, originally scheduled for May 30th, 2020, is officially postponed until further notice. We are currently exploring our options to possibly hold this tournament at a later date in 2020, depending on availability of tournament locations and participating teams, and obviously entirely dependent on the hopeful containment of the current coronavirus health emergency. So for now we will not being opening registration just yet, and instead keeping our fingers crossed for a positive resolution to the current crisis and doing our part to flatten the curve and beat this thing! Stay positive, stay in shape (safely) and stay hopeful that we'll all see each other on the pitch for this exciting tournament sometime in 2020.
