2020 Crosswinds 5K race cancelled

Dear Crosswinds 5K Runners,

First and foremost, we hope that this letter finds you and your family healthy. It’s certainly an unprecedented time in our world. 

We wanted to inform you that with all that is happening amidst the world, especially right here in our community, and after careful consideration, we have decided to cancel the Crosswinds 5k this year.

We recognize the economic hardship this uncertainty has placed on our local businesses at this time. With that continued uncertainty  of the next few months, social distancing measures, the safety of our runners, volunteers, and the economic impact on our community, we believe canceling the Crosswinds 5K is the right thing to do. 

Let us say, THANK YOU for your past participation. We have appreciated you and your willingness to participate or donate to the race in the past. We couldn’t have done it without your generosity. Your participation has helped so many people at The Sands Cancer Center. 

We are already looking forward to plans for the 2021 Crosswinds 5k and are hopeful that at that time you will consider participating with us again. 

Thank you again for your support, we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

All the Best,

The Crosswinds 5k Team

Here Are Your Options:

You understand that our goal is to help those in need, even when the event is cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help the cancer patients at the Sands Cancer Center. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.
