Love Wins Remote 5K
My name is B.J. Lehecka and I'm a professor of physical therapy at Wichita State University. I'm also a runner and my 31st birthday arrives this October, so I thought it was the perfect time to invite the world to run 3.1 miles with me to give a gift to others.
What in the world is a remote 5K?
The beauty of a remote 5K is you can run the race WHEREVER you are! You can run (or walk or jog or bike or swim or climb or dance) the 3.1 miles around your own neighborhood or WHEREVER you want, with whomever you want, anytime during race day.
How does it work?
It's simple. The cost of registration is completely YOUR CHOICE and includes the "Love Wins" race shirt. $31 is only listed as a suggestion. Just give what you can!
100% of the proceeds go to Charity: Water to help give clean, safe drinking water to the nearly one billion people on the planet without it.
On race day, unbridle your creativity and take pictures of yourself in your shirt and/or of your run. Then feel free to post them directly to the Love Wins 5K Facebook page or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org to be included in the Love Wins 5K photo album!
What about the "Love Wins" t-shirts?!
The "Love Wins" race shirt is another way we can run together while apart on race day. The design was created by our graphic artist friend, Alecia Smith. There are 54 color options for your "Love Wins" t-shirt! That's right. 54! Check out the colors HERE and remember your choice during registration. The design will be printed in white on your favorite color.
If you register on or before September 29th, your shirt should arrive before race day, October 19th. You will still receive your shirt if you register after September 29th, but there's less guarantee it will find you before the run. (Please allow extra time if you live outside the United States.)
What is charity: water?
Charity: Water (www.charitywater.org) is a non-profit organization set out to make clean water a reality for some of the most vulnerable people on the planet. They are doing revolutionary work with brilliant, sustainable solutions.
Nearly one billion of the world's poorest people lack access to clean water, and are forced to travel great distances to collect water from contaminated sources. Dirty water kills more people than all forms of violence including war, and every 20 seconds a child dies from a water-related disease.
You can learn about the beauty of Charity: Water's non-profit model by watching this video (100% of your donation will directly fund clean water projects).
That's it! Register now and share this event with your friends!
Love runs, walks, jogs, bikes, swims, climbs, dances, and ultimately WINS!
See you October 19th!
