EVENT: Team Up 4 Adoption

Mel Berg


It's a virtual 5K / 10K / AnyK Adoption Fundraiser!  

APR 16, 2016 - APR 22, 2016

The distance is up to you, and you decide how you'll reach your distance goal - e.g. walk, run, bike, skate, horseback ride! The event will kick off Saturday, April 16th and go through Friday, April 22nd. That’s a full week to reach your distance goal. To get the full community/event experience, Like our event page on Facebook. This will bring you into the action where you can see other participant posting their time, pictures of how they’re reaching their goals, and we can motivate each other to keep moving! During race week, when you post about your progress please add #TeamUp4Adoption to your post. This allows everyone to see your event post.

Oh yeah – did we mention…we’ve got swag! Participants will receive a Team Up 4 Adoption event shirt! We’d love to see you in some event gear, so register before the swag deadline, APR 8th  ;)

Feeling extra competitive!?! Create your own team and bring your friends, colleagues, and fellow athletes into the race! Go head-to-head against other teams to have the most members, or the greatest distance goal.

It’s all about having fun through an interactive event that unites us all to team up to help offset the final stretch of adopting our 2 kiddos from Ukraine.
