7th Annual Strive V5K #StriveV5K22

Mon October 24 - Fri November 4 Wilmington, DE 19802 US
How You Lead Matters


It is that time of year again where Strive friends, family, and supporters challenge themselves to participate in the virtual 5K!

Join us in participating in Strive's 7th Annual Virtual 5K!  This annual tradition is an opportunity to partake in a virtual 5K and help us raise critical funds to support our programming! 

The 7th Annual Strive V5K will take place Monday, October 24 - Friday, November 4. Last year, participants joined from 21 states; our goal this year is to reach all 50 and beyond!! 5Ks were run, swam, visualized, biked, hiked, walked, rowed and even crawled.  We invite you to join us again this year as we seek to expand the event to over 300 V5K participants around the world.

Where can I participate and how? Anytime, any way, anywhere. No travel, no early starts, no jostling at the starting line. We also use the term "run" loosely. You can walk, bike, swim, hike, skip, you name it... it counts to complete this race! We encourage you to get creative! How will you Strive?

Who can participate? You! Your friends. Your family. Even your pets! You can sign up individually or get together a group of friends and sign up as a team.

How will my completion be celebrated? You will feel great not only doing the 5k but also knowing you are contributing to provide STRIVE character-driven leadership access for everyone! Additionally, you will receive endless social media attention and personal bragging glory to your social circle will be bestowed upon you. 

Team Competitions: We will be highlighting individuals and teams that take their participation to the next level. These teams go for the win in the following:

Why run (and raise funds) to support Strive? Strive is a non-profit organization dedicated to character-driven leadership development. Through a robust scholarship program, Strive leads the way in developing character leaders in underserved communities. With a focus on middle school, high school and collegiate athletes and their coaches, Strive sharpens teams’ power and impact through teaching winning leadership and culture-building strategies that extend into life.

Last day of the event we will hold an in person celebration at 4 pm at Trolley Square Oyster House for those who can make it. Have no fear, if you can not make it in person, we will share some of the event live on our social media outlets!

Strive offers a research-based, customizable curriculum that begins with self-knowledge, moves into culture creation, and ultimately instills the habit of rigorous leadership practice in its program participants. Strive is based in Wilmington, DE, and serves schools and communities across the U.S.

We believe that when you find the best in yourself, you inspire the best in those around you. That's great leadership.

Run to support Strive, because how you lead matters.
