Life has its ups and downs and 2020 is no exception. Regardless of how interesting or surprising changes may be, we must remain strong and more vigilant while supporting our "Cancer Warriors." Whether you walk, run, or ride, there is one common goal and that is to raise money to support our mission of providing financial support to cancer patients in Tallapoosa County.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, our financial support to those fighting cancer has not stopped. So, it's with great enthusiasm that we will be taking our 2nd annual "Walking for Warriors" fall event to a whole new level. Yes, the physical event might have been cancelled, but this year we will be hosting a "virtual" challenge. This event will be loads of fun while giving us all an opportunity to support a great organization, set some personal goals to being healthy, enjoy some fresh air, and participate in an activity that you enjoy.
With your help and through the virtual race option, you can help us broaden our reach of participants well beyond our community and make this the biggest and best year ever.
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE:
A virtual race allows you to walk, run, or ride from any location. Do it on the road, on a trail, or on the treadmill/stationary bike. Basically, you participate anywhere that you can safely do the activity while maintaining a 6-foot safe distance from others. You get to set your own goals, run/walk/ride at your own pace, time it, and then record it yourself . Our event is intended to honor and remember our cancer warriors, so please do something special in honor or in memory of them when you submit a picture of you during your activity of choice. We are designating the months of September and October to complete your challenge, record your activity, and share your "VICTORY" with us.
HOW DO YOU GET STARTED:
Step 1. Create an account and register for the race. Once registered, you will receive your choice of a t-shirt or race tank.
Step 2. Decide if you would like to walk, run, or ride.
Step 3. Set your goals and while social distancing complete your walk, run, or ride anytime during the months of September and October.
Step 4. Submit a picture (optional) of you completing your activity, along with your results to firstname.lastname@example.org or post on our Facebook page and include #makingadifference or #tcrefuge. In your picture, please be sure to include the name of who you would like to honor or remember in a special way through items such as posters, pictures, customized bibs, etc.
We appreciate the support that we have received from everyone, and we look forward to seeing everyone's pictures.
Please share this event with anyone that you think might be interested!
Hopefully we will be back on track for a physical event in 2021!
