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.

What do I get upon completion?

Most importantly you are honoring a loved one and showing your support to widows and widowers around the world. You will also receive a certificate of completion via e-mail within 1 month of completing the 5K. Proceeds will benefit Widows in Motion.
3 team captains will also receive a prize. Prizes will be awarded to the team captain with the largest team, most creative team, and
