In just about one month, on Saturday, October 17th, we’ll celebrate our first ever virtual event, the “Be a Hero for the Homeless” Virtual 5k. It’s been so wonderful to see 5k registrations and donations come in! And we’ve got some exceptional news to share to encourage even more participation.
On Thursday, October 1 and on Saturday, October 10th we’ll hold Early Registration Drawings. Anyone who registers before those dates is eligible to win. Giveaways include $100 Raley’s giftcards, special gifts from the Sacramento Republic, and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sacramento at Fire Mountain, and much more! We’ll broadcast the drawings on Facebook, so watch our social media channels for details.
How You Can Help
For now, we ask that you join us, and get your friends, family, and colleagues to become a part of our “Be a Hero for the Homeless” Virtual 5k Walk/Run family. For only $45 (and a $3 processing fee) registrants can sign up to do their 5k whenever they’d like until end of day on October 17th.
Walk, run…even hike. It doesn’t matter how you do it, just keep track of your time and then report it online. Oh, and we forgot to tell you! With your registration, you’ll receive a t-shirt and medal, AND, something new…we’ll also have some finisher prizes. So what are you waiting for? Please help us reach our goal of $100,000!
Other things to keep in mind:
- Send us your photos or video of training or competing. Email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Use #BeAHeroForTheHomeless and share on social media.
- Set up a competitive team when you register.
- Create a fundraiser when you register.
We thank you so much for supporting Joshua’s House Hospice. Our goal is to operate by Spring 2021 and with your help we will finally be able to open our doors! In the meantime, we hope that this fundraiser will prove to be a true community event. Though virtual, we sincerely want it to brings all of us together, in a healthy way, and to inspire positivity for the future of Sacramento.
