Event Description

Welcome to YaraStar Foundation's 2nd Annual Virtual Run! The YaraStar Foundation Virtual Scholarship 5K Run is a fun virtual event held throughout the entire month of April, allowing individual participants and teams from all over the world to complete a timed 5K run or walk at their convenience. 

This year, our goal is to raise $15,000 to provide 15 scholarships for precious children who require educational support and brain development therapy. The Virtual Scholarship 5K Run serves as our major fundraising initiative for the year, and we believe that with your support we can make an even greater impact.

Here's How it Works

  • This is a VIRTUAL RACE.

  • WALK or RUN, ANYTIME & ANYPLACE you want during Aril 2024.

  • Use a free app of choice like RaceJoy, Strava, RunKeeper, or MapMyRun to track and time your performance.

  • All timed runs/walk must be completed by April 30, 2024

Once you have completed your 5K, upload your results (including an image of your performance) on RunSignUp no later than May 1, 2024 

Participate as a team or an individual. International runners also welcomed!

The Foundation provides scholarships to early intervention services for special-needs kids, as well as educational scholarships to marginalized kids, thereby giving them an opportunity to thrive and reach their full potential in this world.
