Please join The Network Associate Board the week of June 7th-June 13th for a **VIRTUAL** 5k!
All proceeds of this event will go directly to the Emergency Crisis Fund.
This fund was established to address critical gaps in the safety net for survivors. The Network intends to maintain this funding as a support for survivors across our communities.
The Fund prioritizes supports for survivors where no other funding is applicable. Examples of support include, but are not limited to: one-month rental assistance, educational and social supports for e-learning for clients in shelter or community emergency housing, diapers, basic necessities, supports for incarcerated survivors, emergency bill payments to remain in housing or transportation. Other requests will be considered.
We look forward to seeing social media covered in purple that week and cannot wait to see all your photos and videos. As always, thank you for your continued support of The Network.
A couple of reminders for our virtual 5k:
On June 13th, keep an eye on social media for a message from our staff and associate board members!
All participants will receive a virtual race bib that they can choose to print out or not. This event is open to people of all ages and can be done anywhere around the world!
While many enjoy running alone encourage your family or friends to register and join you!
There is no start time - no need to get start gun nervous or any pre-race jitters. You can head out whenever works best for your schedule.
Be conscious of your path. Whether on a running path, treadmill, or the pavement outside - be aware of your surroundings.
This is not just a run/walk 5k. You can skip, jog, bike, dance, skate, or whatever gets you moving.
After the virtual race, take a minute to brag about your 5k accomplishment. Show us your support by wearing purple and/or using one of our hashtags to highlight your race day.
And most importantly, HAVE FUN!!!
