Event Date: October 9-16, 2022. Deadline to sign up is 10/16/2022
Cause/Reason to sign up and support us!:
The purpose of our virtual 5K (3.1 miles) is to bring attention to the more than 14 million people widowed just in the United States in 2021, and the challenges faced after losing a spouse or partner. Most importantly helping a widow or widower by honoring a loved ones legacy.
As a participant, how is the Widows in Motion 5K completed?
It's a virtual 5K so team captains can have team members join them in honoring their spouse or partner's legacy from anywhere. The objective is to log 3.1 miles by Sunday, October 16. Feel free to walk, run, or even use a treadmill to log the total of 3.1 miles during the week of October 9-16 on your own (be safe!) We use an honor system so you won't need to submit your miles as proof you participated.
Team Captains: Contact people who have signed up with the details of your team specifics to keep them updated. You will receive a daily summary via your email of who has joined your team, with their emails to the contact person.
Who Can Participate?
Anyone can participate and build a team! Recruit your friends and family to join you as you walk in memory of a spouse/partner or in honor of a widow or widower.
Please keep in mind that you'll need to register first, create a team name, and then share the info with your friends, family, and supporters.
