After careful consideration, the Children’s Advocacy Alliance has made the decision to move the Heroes for Hope race to a virtual race. The health and safety of our community are our top priority. This decision is aimed to protect from the further spread of or exposure to COVID-19. Superheroes will have until April 11, 2020, at 7:00 p.m. to run and time their race.
We request that all superhero runners time their race, submit their results, and share a before and after photo with us via email or via social media no later than April 11, 2020, at 7:00 p.m. Tag us @ChildrensAdvocacyAlliance #H4H2020 so that we can celebrate with you!
All virtual superhero runners will receive a runner shirt and medal. We will host we will host a ceremony honoring the work of our runners, community members, and teachers after the risk for COVID-19 has diminished.
Remember, this is NOT an officially timed race, we want you to have fun and know above all else you are helping the kids in our community!
Virtual Race FAQ
How does a virtual race work?
You may run, walk, skip, or dance your race at your own leisure. This may be done outside on a pre-measured course, on a treadmill, or through a tracking device. So long as you finish your distance for your race and time it, you've finished the Heroes for Hope Race 2020. You'll need to upload your finishing time for your race to the website, after you submit your results we will make sure you're on our ceremony list.
What's the best way to virtually run this race?
We suggest using a pre-measured course, tracking device, or a running machine like a treadmill.
Who do I tag in my photos online?
Tag the Children's Advocacy Alliance and use #H4H2020
What if I don't want to run virtually but still want to help kids?
If you don't want to run on your own time, you may donate your registration fees directly to the Children's Advocacy Alliance to help kids find hope. Each registration by itself will train one child in abuse prevention and give three additional children the hygiene products they need. You'll still get race swag and help kids --- it's a win-win!
How can I help more kids virtually?
Encourage your friends and family to donate to the race or run virtually on their own. For every $100 raised, one child will be given one unit of therapy. For every $800 raised one child will be given a medical exam. For every $900 raised one child will be given a forensic interview. For every $1,100 raised a foster child will be given a voice in court. If you help us, we can make a huge impact this year.
Will I get a medal if I participate in the virtual race?
Of course! All runners will be given a medal and a shirt for participating in the virtual Heroes for Hope Race.
