Will be rescheduled due to Covid-19

New Date: TBD

The date may change, but the positive impact will not! Thrive To Survive still needs you! 

We know that both our athletes and our communities want to be racing; we do too.

In an effort to stay transparent on where we are with the Middle Finger 5K, I write to let you know where we are in response to Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact on the race. For the first time in 4 years, the Middle Finger 5K will need to be rescheduled.

As of Friday, March 13 at 7:00 pm, the Office of the Geneva City Manager, has canceled all events until further notice. We are working on an alternate date to reschedule the event in summer/fall or hold it as a virtual event. As we get more information, we will communicate it through our website and social media channels, as well as via email. The safety of our participants, volunteers, spectators and community at large is paramount in this decision. It is a difficult decision, but an important decision for all. This postponement/adjustment is not in an isolated pocket and is happening everywhere with races. Please know we are working swiftly to get this completed including website and social media updates and will be in touch with specifics as they are formalized.

You will all automatically be eligible to participate in the rescheduled event (either at another time or virtual). We are working on a plan to reschedule the Check-in Party and in the event that we end up holding the event virtually, we will be sure to get the MF5K swag to you in a convenient manner.

Thank you for your patience as we navigate this unique situation and work to make a decision that is in the best interest of our participants and community and prioritizes safety above all else. The entire Thrive To Survive board is working diligently to affect these accommodations as quickly as possible given the circumstances.

Thrive To Survive will continue to operate and support those in our communities with cancer. We feel that given the current health crisis; it will be more important for us to continue our fundraising efforts to support those in need. It is estimated that every 2 minutes someone is diagnosed with cancer. Thrive To Survive is still providing emergency financial grants, pick-me-up gifts and thinking through alternative ways to offer our support group meetings so that we can employ what we know about social distancing. In fact, in the face of the current climate registrations for the MF5K have plateaued (as anticipated), however, financial grant applications increased. This event is our BIGGEST fundraiser. You are STILL making a huge, positive difference!!!

We appreciate the enthusiasm, support, and generosity of each of you so far. We are grateful for the donations, as they allow us to continue to provide the necessary resources we offer.

We understand that everyone is highly impacted by our current national climate. We take this situation very seriously and are following protocols set for by our local and state authorities.

We will continue to provide updates as they become available. Thank you for your continued support and generosity.

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the new event date once it is set, and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience!

In the event we can’t reschedule, or the rescheduled date doesn’t work with your schedule, you can choose to participate virtually.
Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own, and report your results - we’ll send you instructions once things are finalized. 

100% of the funds received go towards Thrive To Survive. In the event that the race is unable to be rescheduled, and you don’t want to participate virtually, you can still make your registration go towards our mission. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.
