Due to the concern surrounding the coronavirus and government officials restricting public gatherings, we have made the unfortunate decision not to hold the upcoming Family Enrichment Center’s Run Walk for Children presented by German American Bank at Ephram White Park. However, we will conduct the event virtually!

The decision was not taken lightly, but our priority lies with the safety of our running community, from all of our participants, volunteers, and to those who support our event.

The funds generated from the Run & Walk For Children supports our Wee Care Childcare program and is CRITICAL to keeping our program operating. Family Enrichment Center knows we have a very giving community and we are thankful for our many sponsors like German American Bank, Kroger, and Bluegrass Cellular! 

Virtual Race Instructions

A virtual race is a race that can be run at any location, at any time.  You can walk, jog, skip or run the distance of your choice. You can complete your race at the gym on a treadmill, a practice run in town or a stroll in the park. You can run your race at your pace, wherever you like.   

How does a virtual race work?

1.     Decide WHICH virtual race you would like to participate in—5K (3.1 miles) or Half-Marathon (13.1 miles) and then register online. 

2.     Decide WHEN to run your race! Remember that you can use the treadmill, run outside, skip, jog, or walk.  You can complete your race at one time or take as many days as you like. 

3.     We believe in the honor system so no proof is required for your race, but it would be awesome if you could upload pictures and tell us about your experience on our Facebook page, Run/Walk for Children.  Please use the hash-tag #RunForKids2020 when posting your photos.

Why should I do a virtual race?

1.     The chance to add to your medal collection. 

2.     Complete control over your schedule. Complete the race on your own time. No travel expenses, no hassle with parking and no long lines waiting at the potty. 

3.     An opportunity to support a great cause!

Who can participate?

Everybody and anybody!  There is no age limit and there are no restrictions.  So run, jog, walk, crawl, run alone, run in a group, run with your pet, bike, hike, it does not matter. Just get out there and get moving!

When will I receive my finisher’s medal?

After April 15th at which time we will be sending an email to participants with further details.

Registration for the Virtual Event will continue to be open until Saturday, March 28, 2020 7:30 a.m. CST.  Participants who are registered by the deadline will receive your Event Shirt and Finishers Medal after April 15th (more details to follow).
