I ran with them last year for my half marathon the Run to Remember and had so much fun!
So this year I thought I would have some fun while fundraising and host a virtual 5K and 10K for all who want to help me reach my fundraising goal! Yes I have committed to raise $3,500 this year to really want to reach beyond that goal.I will be hosting a silent auction here in the Boston area and night out as well but I wanted to have an event that all of my virtual friends could participate in too!
Fight Forever 5k and 10k virtual run will take place on the weekend of March 31 and April 1st. I invite you to participate as we all get together and run that weekend. No matter what your running level this is perfect. I like doing a 10K to tune up a few weeks before a longer run, and this is just a few weeks before the Boston Marathon. And a 5K is the perfect place for a new runner to begin :)
I will be posting more information about it weekly too and keeping you updated!!!! I know for sure that everyone who runs/walks with me will be getting a medal and I am working on some t-shirt ideas too. I also will be having some give aways and everyone who completes their race will be entered into a raffle to win some great prizes!
I am asking for a $25 donation for the race, and every single cent of it is just going to the fundraising. In fact you can go here and donate on my page and that is the easiest way!! I have also created a place for the event on active.com if you like registering there for things you can do it that way too.
I hope you will join me that weekend and participate in the Fight Forever virtual run/walk. It is a great way to help support the American Cancer Society and help them create more birthdays!
