Description

Our 3rd Annual Juneteenth Celebration is upon us! Join us for a virtual 5k to raise funds for the Black Women's Health Imperative and raise awareness of Juneteenth! This Juneteenth (June 19th, 2021) help us celebrate the 153rd anniversary of the day enslaved black people in Galveston, Texas, became Americans under the law, and has become an observance of the end of slavery in the US. Freedom is a journey we take together as a country, and this race is a reminder of our commitment together. Organized by the Black Voices CRG of RSI.

Registration is open from June 2nd – June 30th. There are two registration options: $25 with no swag or $35 with swag! Not a runner? No worries, feel free to walk, swim, ride, hike, or dance instead! The main focus of this event is to raise funds for the Black Women's Health Imperative. 

Feeling competitive? Great!

The center that raises the most money will win bragging rights for the year!

Want to raise more money?  Get some sponsors.  

Get your friends, family, and social media framily to donate amounts that correspond with the calendar day for each day of June (ie if they select June 5th, they’d donate $5).

Please note:  we can NOT process payments on RunSignup. Once you have registered here please make your payment here!!

PICK A DAY AND DO IT
Run, walk, swim, ride, hike, or dance any day within the run period (June 11-17). You can start and finish your race wherever you want.

Step 1: Download the app or go to strava.com and create an account. There is no need to purchase the premium version for the purpose of this race.

Step 2:  Search for the “RSI Inclusion Network” club in the app or go to https://www.strava.com/clubs/rsiinclusionnetwork and join the club.

Once you have joined the club, you can access it by going to “clubs” in the app (top right). In the club feed, you can see activities from other racers as well as leaderboards and posts.

You can also change who can see your activity (everyone, just followers, or only you), it’s important that when you record your race activity that it is visible to everyone. When you are happy with your activity, select “Save” (top right).

*Strava also works with several smartwatches and can automatically sync your activity to Strava. Just be sure to go into the app and associate the activity with our race! 

Step 3: Race weekend! Record your activity Friday, June 11 at 8 a.m. ET and Thursday, June 17 at 8 p.m. (for best results, we suggest that you pre-plan your route). Be sure to include “5K Run” or 5K Dance” or "5K <activity>", in the title of your activity to ensure we record your time.
