For those who prefer to participate remotely, don't worry, we've got you covered! The virtual Tech Trot will take place over an entire month, from August 8th to September 11th, giving you the flexibility to complete the 5k from anywhere at your own pace.

Our goal for the Tech Trot is to create a day of friendly competition, family fun, and community connection, all while raising funds and awareness for UnitedWay's TechUnited program. We encourage all ages and skill levels to join us in this Tech Trot - it's not about how fast you go, it's about making every step count for those in need.
