Join us for the Heart 2 Heart group community run to support relief efforts from Hurricane Florence in the Carolinas. Eleven running clubs in Hampton Roads have joined together to encourage the local running community to make a difference for our neighbors in North and South Carolina. We have chosen to focus our efforts on raising money to support Team Rubicon – a hurricane relief team that has a boots on the ground approach to making an impact. Team Rubicon has a work force of military veterans and civilians who go into areas to help those who have been devastated by natural disasters to recover and return to a normal way of life. The Boardwalk run will begin the evening. It will be followed by a celebration of the funds raised with a party at The Shack. The Shack is generously donating 50% of all Orange Crush purchases that evening to the “Heart2Heart” Team on the Team Rubicon Fundraising page.
How can you be part of this Inaugural Event?
Prior to the Event:
1. Donate directly to Team Rubicon – Heart2Heart Team Page (add the link) prior to the event and bring your email receipt to the run so that you are eligible for some amazing raffles that our generous community has donated. One raffle ticket will be earned for every 5.00 donated to Team Rubicon.
2. Sign the electronic waiver form below.
3. If you would like to participate by donating hurricane kits that help towards hurricane relief efforts click on this link to see how you can donate to UMCOR a local organization that is collecting supplies.
You will be able to donate to Team Rubicon the night of the event with a credit card donation and still be eligible for raffle prizes. However, we suggest arriving early to allow time to navigate the line that will form at the donation computers. Donations for raffles must be done by 7:30 pm to be eligible. To be sure you are included in the raffle, donate prior to the event.
Eleven running club leaders have all joined in the decision for no swag, no shirts…..just our running community coming together to help. This is a group run and it allows each runner to give what they can directly to Team Rubicon. As a way to symbolize our united effort – we are asking everyone to wear red that evening – representing the heart of Virginia. Eleven running clubs train on their own …. but for one night …… We Run as One!
