5k Race for Change Fund
In the spirit of taking action, Bank team members have come together to find a fun and healthy way to support the Black Lives Matter movement. Join us in a virtual 5K run, walk, or bike Saturday, July 18 or Sunday, July 19.
What is a virtual 5k?
Don’t worry, we’re not asking you to run on GoToMeeting. Participants who sign up for a virtual race register online and simply choose their own starting line, whether it's a treadmill or a neighborhood street, run the race distance – 5k or 3.1 miles, and upload their finishing time.
To register, simply make a donation of $25 or more to the 5k Run for Change fund on Bright Funds. Your donation or “registration fee” will be matched and distributed to local organizations and charitable initiatives aimed to support Black lives and communities.
You can choose to run, walk, or bike on Saturday, July 18 or Sunday, July 19 and track your metrics on your favorite app. Make sure to track your time and send your results to firstname.lastname@example.org to compare your results with other team members participating in the 5k!
The goal of this event is to get people thinking, get people talking, and get people moving! This event is not sponsored by the Bank but instead stems from team members taking action into their own hands. We hope this inspires you to do the same.
