Be Kind 5 K
The Be Kind 5 K fun run/walk endows a scholarship fund created at WCA Foundation in Rosie Billquist’s memory. The name of the race comes from the quote Rosie painted on a bench she created for patients to use outside UPMC Chautauqua where she worked. It reads: “In a world where you can be anything, be kind.” Rosie was a joyful, kind-hearted individual who loved to run and to help others. Thank you for doing the same by supporting this event.
In these uncertain times, we wanted to make sure to keep everyone safe and healthy! And, with that being said, we are changing this event to a virtual event. We hope to make this as interactive and fun as possible-just like Rosie would have wanted!
How it works: Simply walk or run a 5k (minimum) any day, anywhere, WHILE PRACTICING SOCIAL DISTANCING in a location of your choosing and you will have completed the race. It can be on a treadmill, elliptical, on your favorite road, or a trail. The point is to be active to improve our own mental and physical health while helping those in need.The top male and female finisher will be able to make a donation in their name to a COVID-19 impacted charity of their choosing. All remaining proceeds will be donated to WCA Foundation Rosie Billquist Fund. You can submit your results through the link below however reporting is completely optional. In order for your results to be considered for the donation and placing, please be sure to include the link to your fitness app whether (Nike Run Club, MapMyRun, Strava, etc).
Feel free to post pics of your walks/runs, your treadmill walking/running and taking your pet outside for a walk.
Let's all come together and make this a successful, fun event!
DEADLINE TO ORDER A T-SHIRT IS JUNE 8TH IF YOU WANT TO RECEIVE TO RUN/WALK IN!
