What is a virtual 5k?
A virtual 5k is a race that you can complete by running or walking 5k at any time and location during the event period. 
Why should I join?
All proceeds from the event will go to the NYCC and help fund the valuable therapy services, as well as the free tutoring, mentoring and extracurricular events, that the NYCC provides to victims of child abuse and their families. Plus, you will have fun logging some miles for a run/walk! 

How do I join?
Register here before September 16, 2021, 11:59 PM EST. The registration fee is $20 (plus $2.16 processing fees) per person. Additional donations are welcome and much appreciated.
If you would also like to buy a t-shirt that the Junior Board has designed for this event, please place an order here: Note that it may take up to 3-4 weeks to receive the t-shirt for U.S. addresses, so please place an order an advance if you wish to wear the t-shirt during the virtual race/walk. 

Then what do I need to do? 
Any day/time on September 17-23, 2021, go run or walk 5k! You can do this anywhere outside or on a treadmill. You can time yourself manually or using a health fitness or run tracking app, such as Nike Run Club, Strava, Garmin, etc. You will have the option to upload your results here to share them with the rest of the participants. You may also upload photos from your run/walk!
