Going Virtual! 4th Annual Fund a Life 5k & Yoga Event - Virtual Edition

Thank you for your interest in participating in Fund a Life's 4th Annual 5k & Yoga event! This year we are moving to a Virtual Event which is shaping up to be an extremely fun, flexible, and even bigger version of this event than ever before! Although we LOVE the community of gathering in person to celebrate events like these together, current Covid-19 events are forcing us to get more creative and ultimately helping us now make this year's event an amazing opportunity to support our mission while (virtually) gathering to support our mission of helping to shine light in the darkest moments of people's lives.

Thank you for your generosity and commitment as you partner with us to impact lives across Michigan in desperate crisis moments. You are a SHINING LIGHT!

Here Are Your Options:

Our virtual version of this event is going to be AWESOME! Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds, and give everyone flexibility in when you run, where you run, and enter fun and exciting challenges to make the event an epic experience! You simply run the distance on your own, and report your results - we’ll send you more instructions soon!

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to support our mission especially in times like these. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

We completely understand. We hope you can join us next time and can consider supporting our mission in other ways to help the lives we are supporting.

Description

Fund a Life brings you the 4th Annual Fund a Life 5k & Yoga event - Virtual Edition! Our typical in-person event plans have been hijacked by Covid-19, but that will not stop this awesome annual event from kicking some major butt, raising awareness and funds in support of our mission, and helping inspire people everywhere to continue to SHINE LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS!

With more flexibility than ever before, this year's event will offer our standard 5k Run/1 Mile Walk options as well as a variety of fun and rewarding challenges to test the true competitor and Fund a Life enthusiast! In either scenario, we will also have a LIVE yoga session that will kick off on Saturday morning the 11th, and we will have the video available to follow along with afterwards. Who knows, maybe we will even pop on live throughout the week with some additional hosted yoga sessions if you really are calling for it.

Whether you have a favorite 3.1 mile route you enjoy, or want to follow along the course we have plotted, YOU are now in control of where, when, and how frequently you want to participate in this event ALL WEEK LONG. So grab some friends, place some friendly wagers, and let's raise some money while having some fun!

The race will also be featured on Racejoy, which is a real-time GPS tracking and interactive running platform we are excited to bring to you with the help of our partners at Race Day Events. You will have the ability to instantly post your results from the app as well and they will be updated as participants complete the event throughout the week! This being one of our major fundraisers for the year, we hope to see you at this year's event with your closest family and friends running, walking, and yoga-ing alongside you! 

Register today to help support our local nonprofit that makes a huge impact in people's lives facing major life-altering circumstances of all kinds. 100% of the proceeds goes towards supporting our mission which is a 501c3 non profit located in Brighton, MI.
