VIRTUAL EVENT 2020
Yes, that's right ! After a year filled with transition work and internal reorganization, we're ready to take on 2020, even through a global pandemic ! Even though we won't be able to gather at the Start line and run/walk together, Legs for Literacy will still happen in a virtual form - and with an exciting feel nonetheless to celebrate its 20th anniversary, including a 5k, 10k, half-marathon and possibility of half-marathon team relay.
Mark October 23-25, 2020 as "Race Weekend" on your calendars for the 2020 Legs for Literacy Virtual event, but log your run anytime between Oct. 19th and Oct. 25th, 2020.
Choose your distance, 5k, 10k, half marathon and team relay, lace up your shoes (or slip on your flip flops - whatever floats your boat) and hit up your favorite trail or road and log your run. It really is simple as that!
Each participant will receive a medal and a face mask, as well as a wave of gratitude from our partners working in literacy organizations, who greatly need our support in these challenging times.
We also have special edition T-shirts for sale, if you want to grab one of those as a memorabilia.
In past events, approximately 3000 runners and walkers participated in various race day events: including a full marathon, half marathon, 10k and 5k and Team Relays. Another 450 school-aged children competed in our Family Run Walk which encourages children at the elementary and middle school levels to make healthy physical activity a part of their daily routine. Every year we raise over $30 000 for charitable contributions to local literacy projects, bringing our total to date to $781 000.
Join us in 2020 for some virtual fun!
