The American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation (ASHFoundation) is excited to announce its FIRST Virtual 5k Walk/Run event on August 29, 2020 sponsored by Simucase LLC. Our Virtual 5k Walk/Run route is a total of 3.1 miles that you can complete wherever you choose. You can participate by walking or running inside on a treadmill or outside on any path you choose at any time of day on August 29th. You can complete this 5k by yourself or participate with friends! Each participant who registers will help advance the charitable work of the ASHFoundation which supports innovators and sparks innovation for the communication sciences. Need help figuring out the best walk/run route? We recommend using free online tools such as Google Maps or other free apps like 'MapMyWalk' or 'MapMyRun', etc.
The cost to participate is $40.00 USD per registrant. The first 500 people to register will receive an official 5k walk/run T-shirt and an exclusive race bib. All proceeds from the registration fees go to the ASHFoundation to provide support for students, researchers and clinicians exploring bold ideas and new solutions to improve the lives of people dealing with speech, language and hearing disorders.
Registrants will have the option to participate in a sweepstakes sponsored by Simucase LLC for a chance to win one of three grand prizes featuring Apple Watch Series 5 Smartwatches (ARV: $499 USD).
