Description

Join our 5th We're All Human 5K Color Run, only this year, it's virtual! 

We may be living through a pandemic, but that doesn't stop us all from having fun while participating in raising funds for an important cause, Youth Suicide Prevention! 

The mental health issues relating to our lockdown and the ongoing pandemic are especially hard for people with anxiety, stress and depression. So what better way to connect as a family, or socially distant with friends, neighbors and as a community, supporting our young people who struggle and helping prevent a cause that affects so many families.

You have a whole week to complete the 5K, at a place of your choice. You can do it in intervals over the whole week or all at once and you don't have to run. You can walk, cycle, or do any other form of physical fitness, just as long as you move and complete 5K by joining this colorful family fundraiser for youth mental health and suicide prevention programs, benefitting the Ryan Bartel Foundation.

Registration fee: $35.00. Includes branded T shirt, neck gator, 3 packs of colored powder for showering each other and to celebrate life!

School team challenge: Team with most participants wins the unique Color Running Man Trophy that gets passed school to school each year.

Bonus: Any teams of 10+ runners qualify for automatic 10% discount making it $31.50 per runner.

Our goal is to raise $20K, and there are many ways you can all help us reach that goal:

1) Help us spread the word with all your social and work groups and get friends, family and neighbors to sign up. Challenge each other, share your photos and tag us #ryanbartelfoundation #WAHColorRun2020

2) Create your own fundraiser. Tell everyone you're participating to support this cause and ask them to DONATE. Every donation counts and helps towards our goal. Click 'Become a Fundraiser' in the menu to get started.

3) Create a Corporate sponsored team. Ask your employer to pay for employees to participate. Click 'Corporate Sponsored team' to get started. We will bill the employer once the run is completed. See FAQs below for more details.

FAQs

Do I need to run to participate in this event?

NO. There are plenty of other great 5Ks out there to test speed and performance. This event is all about doing a healthy activity by yourself or with friends and family, while raising funds for a really important cause affecting many families; youth mental health and suicide prevention. You have a whole week to complete 5K either running, walking, cycling or other activity where you can log distance. 

Can I complete 5K anywhere?

YES. Any place of your own choice, whether on a treadmill, in your neighborhood, park, sport facility etc. The key is to remain safe while doing it.

Will there be prizes?

Yes, we have a very cool, Color Running Man Trophy for the school team with the most participants that gets passed to the winning school every year and the school's name will be added to the trophy. Start a challenge by getting as many of your friends, family and neighbors to join your school team so your school can be the winning team!

What is included with my registration?

If you register by Sept 13th at 5pm, you will be guaranteed a FREE short sleeved white T-shirt in the size of your choice with this year's cool logo to wear. After that date you will still receive a T shirt but we can't guarantee the size. Packets will also include a branded neck gator (can be worn as a mask, neck cover or head gear) and 3 color packets that you can shower on yourself or others to look like a beautiful color rainbow.

Where is packet pick up?

Drive by Packet Pick up is available on:

Sat Oct 3rd, from 12pm-5pm, at Evergreen Sportsplex, 19623 Evergreen Mills Rd, Leesburg 20175. You also have the option of having your packet shipped for an extra fee. Cut off date for shipping is Sept 27th. 

How do I get a group registration savings?

Group registration savings means you can lower the cost of your online registration processing fee if you sign up more than one person in one transaction. A single registration processing fee is $3.00 in addition to the $35 registration fee. The higher the total of your transaction, the lower the processing fee p/person becomes:

Over $50 - 6% fee

Over $250 - 5% fee

Over $1,000 - 4% fee

What is the team discount?

All teams will get a 10% discount on their registration fee, (reduced to $31.50 p/person) once they have a minimum of 10 registrants on the team. Set up either a School team or a Corporate sponsored team in the left hand menu. Who ever sets up the team will be the team captain. The discounted price of $31.50 will apply once you reach 10 or more registrants and those already registered will receive an automatic refund of $3.50. 

What are corporate sponsored teams?

Businesses can sponsor their employees to run at no cost to them by creating a corporate sponsored team. A team captain needs to create the team and follow the instructions to create a code which will allow employees to register at no cost. The company is billed for the total number of registrations once registration closes.

Is The We’re All Human Virtual 5K Color Run a charity event?

YES. This is a fundraiser organized by and benefitting the Ryan Bartel Foundation for their youth suicide awareness and prevention programs. The Ryan Bartel Foundation is a 501.c.3 non-profit organization. Every registration counts and will help towards the goal of raising 20K. You can also help by donating in addition to registering, organizing fundraisers for your completion of 5K, and getting friends and family to join in.

Is the color powder in the packet safe?

The color powder is a colored corn starch and is non-toxic, biodegradable, skin safe and environmentally friendly. We recommend you wear sunglasses or close your eyes to to protect them when showering yourself in powder. We also recommend that people with asthma do not inhale the powder. Throwing color is fun and makes for a great family or social event to celebrate life. Throw it up in the air, at each other and then go RUN! 

 Will the color ruin clothes or running shoes?

We suggest wearing items that you wouldn’t mind getting colorful. We also recommend wearing the branded shirts from your packet and take photos and share them with us! To avoid and/or minimize stains, vigorously shake out all dry excess powder before stepping into a shower, or throwing your clothes in the wash. Once the caked dry colors get wet, it is harder to get out.
