Join us for our fifth annual FATHER’S DAY 5K virtual race! It’s time to celebrate your father the HERO! We will also be donating at least 15% of each registration to Team Hoyt, which works to build the individual character, confidence and self-esteem of America’s disabled and physically challenged young people through inclusion in all facets of daily life. In the spring of 1977, Rick Hoyt told his father, Dick Hoyt, that he wanted to participate in a 5-mile benefit run for a lacrosse player who had been paralyzed in an accident. Far from being a long-distance runner, Dick agreed to push Rick in his wheelchair and they finished all 5 miles, coming in next to last. That night, Rick told his father, “Dad, when I’m running, it feels like I’m not handicapped.”
What: This is a 5K virtual run (or walk) to celebrate the awesome Dads out there!
When: Complete your race any time in June 2018
*Medals and bibs will ship at the end of May. After that they will ship every 2 to 5 days.
Why: Because this is our way of celebrating Father’s Day and to help raise funds for an amazing organization: Team Hoyt
Cost: The price is$18 and that includes your medal, bib and shipping. Plus, at least 15% of every entry will be donated to Team Hoyt. *We are in no way affiliated with this charity, we like to choose a different charity for each of our races and are happy to raise funds for them.
