Join us for the 2nd Annual Virtual Denim Dash!
This team is set up in honor of Landon and Nolan Rinker, two year old twins diagnosed with Lissencephaly before birth. You can read more about their story here or here. Thank you for caring about rare!
Race times and windows will be updated later and listed here as well as on the blog and facebook page. For now - just now that some time in March - there will be an opportunity to run with a group, or on your own. Be sure to use #dasher2016 and #twoifbyfaith on social media to help us build excitement and awareness.
DENIM DASH 2016 NET PROCEEDS:
Net proceeds from both the Virtual Denim Dash 5k, and the Local Dash will go directly back to the Rare Disease Community through Global Genes' RARE Patient Impact Grant. That's what makes this Dash so different from others, the funds you raise through the Denim Dash go directly into a program that positively impacts the rare community!
HOW TO REGISTER:
Please join our team "Two if by Faith - Landon and Nolan's Life with Liss". You can join as a racer, or simply donate.
Supporters from all over the world will run/walk/swim/bike or roll 3.1 miles to support the RARE Community. The DENIM Dash 5k for Rare Disease is virtual, so you have the flexibility to participate wherever, whenever is most convenient for you as long as you Dash anytime between March 19th-27th!
Once you register, you will receive a dash packet. Included in the packet will be:
· Dash T-Shirt (must register by 3/2/15 to receive t-shirt)
· Dash Bib & Safety Pins
· Medal (to the first 1,000 who register)
· Blue Denim Genes Ribbon to wear on your shirt
TIPS AND IDEAS FOR YOUR VIRTUAL DASH:
Use different apps like Google Maps, Map My Run, Nike Running, etc., to determine a 3.1 mile route near you to bike, hike, row, paddle, swim or whatever you like! You can do this in a group, with a friend or by yourself. It’s up to you how will you DASH? You can share your 5k DASH with your friends, family, and other members of the Rare Disease Community through Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using #Dasher2016! Can’t DASH 3.1 miles in one day? No problem! You can take your time and complete the 5K during the week. All you have to do is register!
Please join us in this incredible opportunity to raise awareness for those you are dashing for, all while supporting the Rare Disease Community as a whole through raising funds for Global Genes' RARE Patient Impact Grant.
