BENEFITING: STUPID CANCER
We’re just a bunch of nerds trying to save the world one mile at a time. The Nerd Herd Racing Series came together when a group of 20 –, 30-- and one 40-- something bonded over running to raise money for breast cancer research. Wanting to do more, the Nerd Herd came up with a trilogy of races to raise money to support StupidCancer.org. Nerds love a good trilogy. And the Nerd Herd thinks cancer is so stupid.
The Nerd Herd Racing Series consists of three virtual races paying tribute to topics embraced by nerds worldwide: Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and The Hunger Games. The first in the virtual race series – the Revenge of the 5th 5k – is scheduled for May 5th – May 11, 2014. The second race is the Lord of the Bling 5k and 10k and is scheduled for July 21 – July 27, 2014. The final race in the Nerd Herd Racing Series takes place October 6-12, 2014, and is titled The Rebellion Begins 5k and Half Marathon.
Nerds can register for individual races or for the complete trilogy. Registrants receive a race bib for each race via email and a medal for each race upon completion. Those nerds who register for and complete all three races receive a special fourth medal. Proceeds raised go directly to Stupid Cancer. Stupid Cancer is a non-profit organization that empowers young adults affected by cancer through innovative and award-winning programs and services.
