Mon April 19 - Fri April 23

In this unimaginably altered world, there are still so many opportunities to be a Superhero for kids locally and around the world. This year, we are hosting an event that is more important than ever. We, unfortunately, cannot gather for an in-person event and anxiously await the time we can in the future. Instead, we are hoping you will join us for our 2021 Race by either completing a 5K OR Activity Challenge at home. Because we are doing this virtually from our own homes, anyone can participate from every corner and community across the country, no matter your fitness level. We have a challenge you can proudly complete and celebrate physical wellness while supporting 2 amazing causes.

Orphan World Relief

At Orphan World Relief, we build strong partnerships with churches, businesses, other nonprofit organizations, and people just like you to help children in crisiskids entering foster carefamilies adopting, and in the future, kids aging out of foster care. Together we can make a difference!

When you log your minutes, you can choose from default activities (run, walk, ride, outdoor family activity, gym workout, or yoga) or use the "other" category for anything else. Keep track of your minutes and then submit them to the site when you're done! See our help page on how to submit your activity minutes
