Moss Free Clinic 5K Run/Walk

This Race Has Gone Virtual

Thank you for signing up to support the Moss Free Clinic through our Annual 5K Run/Walk for a Healthier Community!      

We have just learned the Clinic's parking lot, where we normally stage the start/finish to our Annual 5K Run/Walk, is being used for the overwhelmingly successful MWHC COVID Vaccine Clinic during our race weekend.   In spite of our disappointment, we certainly applaud and support the great work MWHC is doing to vaccinate our community.  From what I've been told, they are giving shots-in-arms to over 1,000 people per day.  Impressive!  Because of this, we are now switching 100% to the Virtual Race option.  We will strive to make the virtual experience enticingly fun for all participants!  

As you can imagine, we will miss seeing everyone in person but that does not mean we can't stay in touch.  There will be numerous interactive opportunities to engage via social media between now and the virtual Finish Line celebration in early May.     

The Moss Free Clinic 5K is not only our second largest fundraiser of the year, but also a great venue to meet new friends and share the Clinic’s story.  We hope you will choose to stick with us and Run/Walk for a Healthier Community at a time and place convenient for you between April 24 and May 1.   

We understand, of course, if a virtual run is not for you.  If you wish to cancel your registration, reply to this email or call 540-741-1080 no later than April 6.  Please let us know in the email or message that you are canceling and (1) wish for your registration fee to be considered a donation to the Moss Free Clinic; ­or (2) would like a refund for your registration amount.  If we do not hear from you by April 6, we will include you in the fun.  Watch your email for further details about upcoming activities, instructions for our virtual race app, and how/when to pick up your pre-race goodies including your t-shirt and bib.   

Again, we hope you will stick with us but understand if you cannot.  Regardless of your decision, will you help us promote the Moss Free Clinic Virtual 5K among your contacts and social networks?  Demand for the Clinic’s free medical, dental and low-cost pharmacy services to the underserved in Fredericksburg and the surround counties is higher than ever.  The generous support of our community makes it possible for us to meet the growing demand.  

Thank you for your patience and understanding.  We are all in these crazy times together - - we greatly appreciate your support! 

Here Are Your Options:

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.

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.
