Live, Love, Latch!® Virtual 5K Run, Walk, Ride

Sun August 1 - Tue August 31
Description

Live, Love, Latch!® is a National Breastfeeding Month (Aug. 1-31) celebration presented by La Leche League USA and hosted by LLL USA Groups across the country. Live, Love, Latch!® events are designed not only to celebrate breastfeeding but also to highlight community support.

In light of the unprecedented global pandemic, we have decided to suspended in-person Live, Love, Latch! events for 2021.  So while we cannot meet in person, we are excited to offer numerous virtual celebration opportunities this year that continue to spread the spirit of Live, Love, Latch! You can visit our website to find more local events to participate in!

Live, Love, Latch!® provides an opportunity to educate family, friends, healthcare providers, and other community members about how they can support breastfeeding and emphasizes the value of the support network behind every nursing dyad. And so, we are excited to announce the first annual

Live, Love, Latch!® Virtual 5K Run/Walk/Ride

Run, walk, ride, swim, unicycle, stroll, crawl...get creative!  Our hope is to get people moving and to bring awareness to the need for breastfeeding support in the community, so no matter your ability, get out and go!  If all you can manage is a stroll around the block with your newborn or if you decide to run a marathon distance, snap a selfie and share your beautiful faces with us using #LiveLoveLatch, #LiveLoveLatch2021 and #LiveLoveLatch5K2021 on social media!!!

While highly appreciated, the goal of our event is to raise awareness, not funding.  Although a fundraiser is set-up by default when you register, please do not feel obligated to raise funds.  Only one individual from your party needs to officially register, we will ask you the total number of participants in your family/party during registration.  You only need to register individuals if you would like to earn fundraising giveaways individually.  If you do choose to raise funds, please keep the following in mind:

Fundraisers will earn Live, Love, Latch! 5K giveaways at different fundraising levels.  You can always donate to your own fundraiser if you want to achieve a certain level of giveaways but not solicit donations from others.  For example, you can simply donate $25 yourself if you would like to receive the 5K medal. Medals will be shipped out as earned; t-shirts and water bottles will be shipped in batches weekly starting July 30th to those who have earned them.  

You will need to select an LLL Area Network/Area/Group to be the designated recipient of your fundraising.  If you do not know what Area Network/Area/Group you are affiliated with, you can reach out to whoever invited you to participate in this event for that information.  If you still do not know, please select "LLL USA".
