Everyone who registers for Dragon Con Hustle: Bolt 5k will get this awesome 3" medal featuring the Dragon preparing their human-cosplay for Dragon Con! It comes on a beautiful dye-sublimated ribbon featuring the Dragon Con logo and the logo of the charity beneficiary for this event: Cure Childhood Cancer (CURE)! You'll also get a custom digital bib for you to download and print out or use on social media. You can use any bib name and bib number you want. You can be "Jenny"/"867-5309" if you want...or have "42" or "9 3/4"...Make it fun! If you are attending Dragon Con, you'll be able to pick up your medal at the Charity Events booth on the Marquis level of the Marriott, Thursday from 2pm-6pm, Friday Saturday and Sunday from 10am-6pm, and Monday 10am-2pm. If you are unable to make it to Dragon Con this year, or just forget to pick yours up, we will mail your medal to you in mid-September.
The charity beneficiary this year is Cure Childhood Cancer (CURE)! CURE is dedicated to conquering childhood cancer. Since CURE’s beginnings in 1975, they have raised millions of dollars to advance promising research, lobbied for important legislation, and provided tangible support to thousands of childhood cancer patients and their families. CURE believes the research they fund today will lead to safer and more effective cures tomorrow, but they also see the need to provide support and help to patients who are fighting the disease today. To that end, they serve as a comforting presence to families from the day they are diagnosed and walk beside them until they are no longer needed. CURE’s programs address the physical, emotional, financial, and educational needs of families during treatment and beyond.
This event is "virtual" meaning that you can complete the distance any way at any location you want...including logging miles/getting steps AT Dragon Con! You can walk, hike, run, skip, roll or dance your 5k in your neighborhood, on your treadmill, around your backyard, or anywhere you want! You can even break up the distance and complete it over several days to make it more manageable!
This event is on the "honor system", so we don't need "proof" of completion. As long as you're registered, you'll get your medal. BUT...we want you to post your sweaty selfie, or sweaty usie, on social media afterwards, make sure to tag us with #DragonConHustle @DC_Charity and @curechildcancer so we can see it and give you a virtual high-five!
Your registration fee is a tax-deductible donation to CURE. Your confirmation email will serve as your receipt, so hold on to it for tax purposes.
Finally, we would like to thank our friends at Fanthropy for facilitating this event. If you have any questions or problems, they are eager to help, so don't hesitate to contact them here.

Our dragon, who loves the Costuming Track, has been busy all year preparing their "real human person" cosplay for Dragon Con. There's much to consider! How does one hide their wings? Or their tail? So much attention to detail...just like all of our amazing cosplayers!
