Run Anytime Between Friday, September 11th 7pm – Sunday, September 13th 12noon
Run Anywhere with Anyone!
The COVID-19 global pandemic is proof that technology can keep us connected as a community and is a critical enabler for education and opportunity! That’s why we are going Virtual for our 2nd Annual Run/Walk for Hope which will continue to raise funds to provide technology resources and skills for vulnerable youth who need our help.
This year the Run for Hope will be held the weekend of September 11th-13th and you can run anywhere with anyone! Choose your location and start time, run or walk alone, as a family, with your dog – the possibilities are infinite! It is your chance to get moving, connect with others across the country, and take steps to spark hope in honor of Arman!
HOW IT WORKS:
Register Registration is $15.00 per person regardless of age. When you register, join your favorite team and encourage all your family and friends to sign up with you! Team captains that signup the most runners win special prizes. If you are interested in setting up your own team with minimum 10 runners, send an email to : [email protected] Our goal is to beat last year’s participation of 350, so we need your help to spread the word!!
