5K Your Way Run/Walk

8:00AM EDT - 11:00AM EDT
Epilepsy Services of Southwest FL-5k Your Way Run/Walk

Runners/Walkers - please see below regarding Epilepsy Services of SW Florida 5k Your Way Run/Walk:

—In an abundance of caution, due to COVID-19 risks and because Sarasota County is not allowing large events in its facilities for a 30-day period beginning Friday, March 13, this event will become a virtual run/walk.   Virtual races happen all the time and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own and share your experience.  You will be supporting our cause to help those in our community with epilepsy to live as close to a normal life as possible.

TO BE SAFE—NO PACKET PICKUP!  Shirts, medals and goodie bags will be mailed to each registered participant by March 27th.

How you can participate:

    •  Choose to run or walk a 5K or 1-mile walk anywhere and anytime you choose…around your neighborhood, on a treadmill …any safe location avoiding crowds or areas that might put you at risk.
    •  Put on your T-shirt and medal and send a virtual high-five with a picture, and tag to Epilepsy Services of Southwest Florida’s Facebook page:             https://www.facebook.com/Epilepsyservices/ or email one to bcoleman@esswfl.org.  All submitted pics will be loaded to our website and Facebook page. 
      Send your  finished Virtual time to Durtiming@gmail.com 
    •  Share how you accomplished your 5k run/walk or 1-mile walk when you post or email your pic…we would love to hear your ideas on how you creatively achieved this goal!

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING EPILEPSY SERVICES OF SOUTHWEST FLORIDA AND OUR WORK IN CONTINUING TO HELP THOSE WITH EPILEPSY IN OUR COMMUNITY.
