May 2nd, May 9th & May 16th
The Alone Together 5K Virtual Series is designed to bring us together to show cancer patients we are here for them, even while we are apart.
This fun-themed series is the perfect way to stay safe, active & in the fight against cancer.
While we are all staying home as much as possible to stop the spread, our mission remains to fight cancer from every angle at this extraordinary time. That is why we are inviting you to join us in our Alone Together Virtual 5K...
Who: Anyone, anywhere that has the ability to run, walk, ride or roll a 5K (3.1 miles)
What: A virtual 5K is your own "race" at your own pace on your own schedule!
Where: Since this 5K is virtual it can be done from any location you choose...the road, the trail, the treadmill... basically anywhere you can safely complete this while practicing the necessary social distancing precautions.
When: May 2, May 9 & May 16 are 5K days...You can participate any time on those days! We don't care when you get it done, just that it gets done!
Why: To bring our community together virtually so we can show cancer patients and their families that although we are alone, we are all together in the fight against cancer.
PSA! There is no winner for fastest time BUT there is still a weekly winner that will be chosen randomly from the photos that are shared on social media. Each week 1 participant will win a $25 gift card to a restaurant of their choice AND a $25 gift card to the same restaurant to give to an essential worker in their life.
On behalf of our community, we thank you for ensuring to practice the necessary social distancing regulations while participating and on behalf of the patients and families who we serve, thank you for continuing the fight against cancer.
Under the best of circumstances, a cancer diagnosis can be frightening, devastating, and isolating. Now, as the COVID-19 crisis grows larger every day, cancer patients – many who already have compromised immune systems - are more vulnerable than ever. In response, your American Cancer Society is refocusing our work to help cancer patients and communities facing the COVID-19 pandemic and we need your help to continue to do so.
For more than 100 years, The American Cancer Society has been leading the fight to end cancer. With your support, we have helped usher in an era where more people survive cancer than ever before. By translating our research findings into action, we've seen a 20% decline in US cancer death rates since the early 1990s.
