During this time of quarantine and social distancing, many people are looking for ways to stay active and healthy in a safe way during the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic. USA Cares' "Keep Your Distance" VIRTUAL 5K run/walk is an excellent opportunity for you and your family to enjoy physical activity while also doing something positive to help others in need.
But is it safe? YES! It is perfectly fine to run or walk while following the official guidelines of social distancing. It is our hope that this virtual event will help people feel connected in a time of isolation. Run, jog, or walk at your own pace on a treadmill, track, sidewalk, trail or anywhere. We are united, even when 6 ft apart! Now’s the time to strengthen your immune system: Running/walking also helps with depression and anxiety. Being cooped up at home worrying about what’s going to happen next does nothing to help with anxiety. Do you know what does? You guessed it – a good run/walk. If stress is bogging you down, rather than turning on the news and feeling down, get out and run/walk.
We are excited to offer this new and safe format so people all across the nation have a safe way to engage with one another virtually. Get moving and stay fit while helping veterans, many of which are now homebound with health conditions that render them unable to get food, medication, and other necessities. Isolation and stress are potential factors that can contribute to veteran suicide, and we want to ensure that the most vulnerable members of our military veteran community are not forgotten during this unprecedented global crisis. All proceeds from the Keep Your Distance Virtual 5K will go towards supporting these individuals and their families.
