Description

The Pineapple Squad Virtual 5K is hosted by the Pineapple Squad in partnership with The Stork Foundation for Infertility. Proceeds from the event will allow us continue to provide support to those battling infertility and to fund a financial grant offered by The Stork Foundation to cover fertility treatments. Participants will have a two week period (June 27-July 11) to complete their 5K by walking, running, or even skipping the whole way if they want! The virtual event will take place wherever YOU are!  All registrants will receive a medal upon race completion and those who create a personal fundraiser AND raise at least $150 will receive a T shirt.

Prizes will be awarded for: 1) Top runners, 2) Top fundraiser, and 3) Runner with best 'pineapple spirit' photo shared on social media with tagging @mypineapplesquad and @storkfoundationforinfertility

Participants who wish to track their time/distance can sign up for Strava to be in the running for our top prizes. A link for recording your run time/distance will be sent prior to the race period.  Be sure to join our VIP Facebook group where we will be raffling off prizes, sharing infertility information, and connecting with participants. JOIN US as we run to spread infertility awareness and help break the financial barrier by providing much needed relief to those who can't afford access to infertility treatments.            

The Stork Foundation for Infertility is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to providing hope and opportunity to those suffering from infertility and fighting for their dream of parenthood. The Stork Foundation offers financial assistance to low resource individuals who require costly medical infertility treatments that would otherwise be out of financial reach. Did you know that infertility affects 1 in 8 couples?  The lack of infertility insurance coverage and high out of pocket cost for treatments (IVF, IUI, egg and sperm donation) can be prohibitively expensive, preventing many from the opportunity to conceive a child and experience the lifelong journey and joys of parenthood. The average cost for just one IVF cycle is $15,000-$20,000 including medicine. Your donation directly supports The Stork Foundation grant recipients.  THANK YOU for your consideration -- together, we'll be a part of making a difference in this important cause!

**Disclaimer: Please do not run on unsafe roads, or areas that have been closed off to the public. Practice social distancing and any other requirements set forth by local, state and federal guidelines. This is a virtual run only, please do not gather as a crowd in any 1 location at the same time.
