After much consideration for the safety and well-being of our community, The Vicki Soto Memorial Fund has come to the decision to host our 8th Annual Vicki Soto 5k in a virtual way. We will miss being in your company, but we promise to make this one-of-a-kind event fun and still full of high energy!!
The Vicki Soto Memorial Fund continues to support literacy in our community, our teachers and their classroom needs (in person and virtually) and provide funding to our local nonprofits providing care to our youth and families. Additionally, we also continue to award scholarships annually to new and formerly awarded future teachers.
Covid-19 has caused great instability and uncertainty, but we are committed to supporting teachers, students, families, and our community. In order to do so, we need your assistance more than ever this year, as we embark upon a new way to celebrate the Life and Legacy of Vicki, in a Virtual 5k!
With the Virtual 5k, we will not gather on the first Saturday of November like we once did in years past, but we invite you to register, run/walk and complete the 5k in the same spirit as before. We encourage you to send us your pictures of your personal or team spirit, dress up in your iconic flamingo decorated outfits, your finishing time and videos of the fun you had running and/or walking on your own path, in Vicki's honor. Your support this year means everything to the future of our work, and we cannot continue to support the fund without you.
To show your support, sponsor or register before October 7, 2020, and you will receive a limited-edition VIRTUAL VICKI SOTO 5K electronic bib (that you can download and print from home) and t-shirt (that will arrive to you by mail). As part of your registration and participation, you just might be featured in our social media build-up frenzy of fun taking place November 1-7th!
Thank you, as always, for your support and your VS5K spirit. We can't wait to see you flamin-go go go!
