2017 Father's Day 5K - Topeka
Event on 2017-06-18 08:00:00
*THIS IS A VIRTUAL RACE! Join us for our fourth annual FATHER'S DAY 5K virtual race! It's time to celebrate your World's Best Dad! 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.” When: Complete your race any time in June. Father's Day is June 18, 2017! Where: You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us). Why: Because we want as many people as we can get to virtually run (or walk) a 5K in honor of all of the DAD's out there. We will be donating a portion of each registration fee (at least 15% of each registration) to Team Hoyt. Cost: . Includes custom medal and bib that will be shipped directly to you. There is also an option to get two medals, to get an extra one to give to the favorite father in your life. 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.* Medals will beginning shipping in May.
