The Virtual Event may be run anytime, anywhere.  You may sign up to Run, Walk, or Ruck! on your time schedule anytime between Saturday, August 29 until Labor Day (Monday, September 7th). A virtual run may be done anywhere:  in your neighborhood, in a park, on a treadmill. You can also spread it out over a couple days.  This is a great way to get started on a walking or running program.  

This is a charity event to assist with the Scholarship Program at The Justin Pepper Foundation. Established in 2007, The Justin Pepper Foundation provides awards and scholarships to youth that excel in community service activities.  In the past seven years, the foundation has provided $35,000 in scholarships, assisting students with educational opportunities beyond high school.
