Last year, we had runners from 19 states, Puerto Rico, and Haiti!
Regardless of geography,
Run together. Run with purpose.
How does a virtual run work? After registration, participants receive a race shirt and all pertinent information about the virtual event. During race week, participants may run or walk a 5K on their own, with family, or roommates (including those who are four-legged). Participants will enter their times and photos into a race results website. Prizes will be mailed to winners within various race categories.
Is July 15th the only time that participants will be walking or running? In short, no! We will ask participants to consider joining the Light from Light community in a 5K on the morning of July 15th in an act of solidarity; however, we will accept “official” times that are submitted anytime between July 8th-16th.
Why a virtual 5K? All proceeds from this 5K will benefit Light from Light, a nonprofit organization that strengthens the foundations of progress in Haitian communities living with extraordinary poverty and chaos. We walk and work alongside proven leaders at our sister organization, Lespwa Timoun “Hope for Children” Clinic, empowering them to build and sustain long-lasting change.
Why your sponsorship matters! We are excited to offer our virtual 5K event again this year to our entire Light from Light community. This will provide an opportunity for sponsors to:
