""Run for Relief" Virtual 5K
Did you know that at least 4.2 million young people experience a form of homelessness in a given year in the U.S., from couch surfing to living on the streets? Of this total, at least 700,000 are adolescent minors ages 13 to 17 – that’s 1 of every 30 adolescent minors. This is such a sad statistic! And with the current Covid-19 situation, it’s even more important we help get relief to those that need it!
As 3G’s goal is to empower, inspire and uplift girls and women, we are using this 5K run/walk to help make sure homeless children are getting the relief they need. We will be donating at least 25% of each registration and donation for this race to the Covenant House, a nonprofit that has been helping transform and save the lives of more than a million homeless, runaway and trafficked young people over the past four decades.
How this will work
3G's "Run for Relief" Virtual 5K Run/Walk is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on a trail, on the treadmill, at the gym, or on the track. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself.
The “Run for Relief” virtual 5K run/walk will take place over the last weekend in September. You will have from September 25th to September 27th, 2020 to complete your race! Here's how you can get involved:
Registration is $10 for the "Run for Relief" virtual 5K run/walk, with the option to donate or fundraise.
