Virtual 5K Home Run
Are you a road warrior or just happy to get the steps in from the couch to your fridge? Either way, this is the event for you! Get the whole family involved, from tiny tots to four-legged furballs. Hop on that treadmill that’s collecting dust. Or dress up in fun costumes. Make the experience what you want it to be – just keep up your physical distancing! You have from May 25-May 31 (11:59 p.m. CT) to complete 3.1 miles. Choose your favorite route to walk or jog, whether it’s indoors or out.
Instead of awarding medals to the fastest participants, we’re celebrating a whole host of achievements! Check our Facebook page for a list of awards categories. Participants also receive a race T-shirt.
Individuals register for $25, while teams of 4 or more pay $20 per person. To sign up for a team discount code, contact Kristin at [email protected]. You can register until May 30.
All proceeds benefit Family Promise of Lawrence, a nonprofit working with families experiencing homelessness to get back into sustainable housing. FPL has remained open throughout the COVID pandemic. In 2020, FPL served 395 unique, non-duplicated families — 1,327 people, of which 804 were children. (That’s almost a 400% increase from 2019.)
