The first-ever Maria's Miles run/walk benefits Maria Tiberi Foundation and Maria's Message

We brought you the story of Maria Tiberi in our July/August issue-the tragic account of the 21-year-old who lost her life in a car accident.

You heard about the message her father, 10TV's Dom Tiberi, wants to spread regarding distracted driving. And if you're looking for a way to support Maria's Message, sign up for the inaugural Maria's Miles, a three-mile run/walk to benefit Tiberi's foundation.

The race is Oct. 11 at 10 a.m. at the Columbus Italian Festival. With your entry fee, you'll receive a race shirt, admission to the festival and post-race food and drink.

Sign up for $30 through Sept. 12, $35 from Sept. 13 through Oct. 3 and $40 from Oct. 4 through race day.
