Description Lace up those tennis shoes - registration is now open for the 2020 Teacher Trot: ATPE-PAC Virtual 5K Run/Walk event! The entry fee is only $10!
Support the ATPE Political Action Committee (ATPE-PAC) while also challenging yourself to complete a 5K during the final days of November. Go solo or take the family with you for a 5K run or walk on any day that's convenient for you, starting from kick off Monday, Nov. 23, through Sunday, Nov. 29.
Registration closes Monday, Nov. 23, at midnight, so be sure to register today! After registration, look for an email from us with more instructions. Why run/walk (and raise funds) to support ATPE-PAC? In 2020, we contributed to many pro-public education candidates to help them get elected. As a result of our financial assistance, we have new and returning pro-public education legislators headed to Austin next year. This allows ATPE's lobbyists to better serve ATPE members and to advance our legislative agenda during the upcoming session. Help ATPE continue to be your voice with your donation!
Where can I participate and how? Anytime between Nov. 23-29, you can walk, hike, skip anywhere, as long as it's a 5K! How will you trot? Who can participate? ATPE members! Make it a group effort by inviting members of your household or even fellow ATPE members to join you.
Will there be prizes? Of course! The member with the best finish time will win a Fitbit Inspire HR! For those who aren't "racing," everyone who signed up for the event will automatically be entered into a drawing to win one of five prizes. Check the prizes out by clicking on the "Prizes" tab at the top of the page!
Where can I purchase a T-shirt? Commemorate this event by purchasing your very own 2020 ATPE-PAC Virtual 5K tee, tote bag, or mug via the ATPE-PAC store on Bonfire. Bonfire will print and ship the items directly to you. A portion of the sales will also benefit PAC, so take a look!
We hope that you and your family will participate in this fun event. Together, we can make a difference and successfully advocate for our public schools and your profession!
Not able to participate in the virtual 5k, but still interested in helping helping our cause by contributing to our fundraising efforts? Consider making a one-time donation today.
