The Event:

Avalaunch Gives Back 5k and Family Fun Run

Join Avalaunch Media on Saturday October 29th at Wheeler Historic Farm in Salt Lake City for the Avalaunch Gives Back Charity 5k and Eddie the Yeti Mascot Family Fun Run. Proceeds from the event will go to support Water For Life Charity, as well as Allies 2 Refugees. See info on these two outstanding organizations below!

It is our goal for 100% of sponsorship dollars to be donated to these charities. Payments can be remitted to Water For Life and you will receive charitable donation paperwork. 

Help us reach our goal of $15,000 raised!

Event Details:

This is the 2nd year for this event and we’re excited to bring it back. The event includes a 5k at the beautiful and historic Wheeler Farms, plus a mascot family one mile fun run hosted by Avalaunch Media’s own, Eddit the Yeti!

There will be post race awards and breakfast after the event concludes plus overall and age group awards and a very nice runners gift bag (with race t-shirt!) courtesy of our sponsors. Last year we raised over $12,000 for the Water for Life Charity and the Michael J Fox foundation. This year we have identified some new charities to partner with. It is our goal for 100% of the sponsorship dollars given to the race to be donated to charity. And we successfully accomplished that goal last year.
