What’s a virtual 5K? It’s your own race, at your own pace! From Friday, October 16th through Sunday, October 18th, you can run, jog, walk, or bike – in your neighborhood, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym, or on the track! Invite family members to join you!
Your registration and pictures of your participation will qualify you to win one of several raffle prizes. More details to follow! The first 100 participants registered will also receive a SCOW Virtual 5K water bottle to keep them hydrated during the race. Please join us as we race to raise much needed funds to help those most in need of our support during this challenging time.
This virtual 5K has been made possible by our sponsors - allnex and Röhm! We thank them for being true community partners.
For 48 years, the Spanish Community of Wallingford (SCOW), has been successful in implementing its mission by providing a variety of social, cultural, educational services and enrichment activities that allow our clients to not only thrive, but to successfully integrate themselves into U.S. society. Every program we offer is designed and implemented to build confidence, enhance skills, and offer educational opportunities. While basic services allow our clients to survive, enrichment activities help transition them out of poverty to full participation in the U.S. society.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have shifted our primary focus to securing COVID-19 emergency funds in order to help our most vulnerable individuals and families. Through today, we have distributed over $45,000 in grant money received for COVID-19 relief to over 400 individuals to assist them with rent, utility, and medical bills, and even the purchase of food for their household.
The current circumstances forced us to make the difficult decision of rescheduling our main yearly fundraiser to 2021. Since the need in our community continues to increase, so must our efforts to secure funding for COVID-19 relief. In order to continue these efforts, our friends and sponsors at allnex & Röhm, have helped us put together a Virtual 5K Race/T-shirt Fundraiser.
