Description

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE

These are difficult times. COVID-19 is effecting people all over the world and is impacting all of our daily lives and those of our loved ones. We want to provide an outlet for people to stay active, healthy, safe, and competitive if they choose to be, during this difficult situation.

The Virtual Race gives you the flexibility to be an athlete on your own time, at your own pace, and in your own space.

Regardless of your fitness level, we hope you join us in supporting our local businesses and community with this Virtual Race. While this is an individual activity, we will all overcome this together. 

VIRTUAL SERIES CLUB CHALLENGE & GRAND PRIX

You must be registered with a Club/Team before the race starts (June 15th). If you registered before their was a Club/Team option, please send us an email before the race starts to let us know your club and we will add you.

RESPONSE TO COVID-19

Our mission is to create a community of comfort and hope for families with seriously ill children. With hundreds of volunteers and donors, we know that our community spreads beyond the walls of our House. Wherever you are and whatever you are doing – we hope you are doing well and staying safe.

At RMHC of the Philadelphia Region, we are closely monitoring the dynamic situation that is the spread of COVID-19 in our area, and we will continue to act thoughtfully to ensure all precautionary steps are taken. We are in regular contact with our hospital partners and will continue to rely on guidance from local, state, and federal health authorities. 

We have taken numerous precautionary steps to keep our families safe. At this time, only essential operations staff and registered families are allowed at the House. All volunteer activity, including Guest Chef Groups, has been suspended and a number of fundraising events have been postponed or cancelled so we can all do our part to flatten the curve.

Even during this time of the “Stay at Home” statewide directive, our House remains open and as always, the health and well-being of our families is our priority.

We recognize that this is an uncertain time for all of us, but our families face uncertainty every day as their child receives treatment at local hospitals. They need you now, more than ever before, to help them weather this storm. We hope you will consider supporting our families.

Thank you for considering how you can support RMHC of the Philadelphia Region and our families.
