Run (or walk, or bike) where you are, and share some Hope For Children Now!

COVID-19 has disrupted so many aspects of life, especially for the vulnerable children growing up in our lowest-income neighborhoods and attending local schools.

But for all the runners and walkers out there, it can’t take away the open road… as long as you remain 6 feet away from the nearest runner!

To spread a little Hope For Children Now, and to fundraise for the children in our community, we are hosting a “virtual” race. All you have to do is sign up, run 5K, and post your time to your page. It’s that easy. Oh, and along the way, urge your family and friends to contribute to your fundraiser page, all in support of Children Rising.





of your goal reached

Here's how it works...

  • Register to join our race. (Your $25 registration fee is tax-deductible and counts towards your overall fundraising goal.)

  • Personalize your fundraiser page with your picture, your own words, and a fundraising goal. Make the goal a stretch!

  • Involve your friends and family by RSVPing to our Facebook event and sharing your personal fundraiser page via social media, email, or a good old-fashioned telephone call. You can even connect your fundraiser page to Facebook and create a Facebook Fundraiser.

  • Do your 5K anyway you choose.  We recommend using your favorite running app to track your mileage.

  • Post your results. Take a screenshot or a photo of your course and time, and post it to our Facebook event page.

  • Bask in the satisfaction that COVID-19 didn’t keep you from supporting of the vulnerable children in our community.

Be creative! You can walk, run, rollerblade, even spread it out over a few days. Whatever you can do to raise money and awareness while keeping with shelter-in-place orders and having fun.
