Love Wins Remote 5K
Saturday, October 18, 2014 from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM (CDT)
Love Wins Remote 5K
My name is B.J. Lehecka and I'm a professor of physical therapy at Wichita State University, dedicated to bringing restoration and rehabilitation to the planet and the people dancing on top of it. Over $5,500 was donated during last year's Love Wins 5K to give clean, safe drinking water to those without it! The experience was overwhelming. Gratitude abounded and lives were changed (and are still being changed), so we've decided to make it an annual tradition and keep the generosity flowing!
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 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 YOUR CHOICE and includes the "Love Wins" race shirt. Please donate at least $7 to cover the shirt and shipping costs, then 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 email@example.com 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 20th, your shirt should arrive before the big day, October 18th. You will still receive your shirt if you register after September 20th, but it will be sent sometime after the run.
Three shirt shipments will be made: the first in mid-September (for registrations prior to September), the second between October 5th and 10th (for registrations between September 1st and 20th), and the third sometime soon after the Love Wins 5K (for registrations after September 20th).
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 donations directly fund clean water projects.
That's it! Register now and share this event with your friends! See you October 18th!
