From time to time I will hear runners question the value of running a virtual race. For me, it is typically about running to raise awareness and/or funds for a favorite cause. I figure if I am healthy enough to run a 5K or more, surely I can put my gift of health and fitness towards helping others, right? If you feel the same way, consider the World Refugee Day 5K, which is happening around the globe now through June 20th, 2019!
I will be running on June 20th (in Canada), along with many of my fellow BibRave Pros. Join us! Your registration also includes a donation to the work of American Refugee Committee (ARCRelief.org). According to the website, ARC is able to bring more than 35 years of expertise in services – like health care and sanitation – that are critical to refugee communities.
