Grab your running shoes and your kids and join us for a 5K family fun run at Regency Square on Saturday, April 18th. All proceeds will go to Project Respect a 501 (C)-3 non-profit organization raising money to help feed, clothe, and educate children struggling to survive in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya.
Project Respect’s charity event will begin and end at the food court of Regency Square Mall in picturesque Richmond, VA. It is an outdoor event, and we are expecting beautiful weather. But we will run rain or shine. That’s why there are no refunds (come on guys, it’s a charity run!). This is a family friendly activity, and parents are encouraged to participate with their children.
Our ultimate goal is to build a new school for children living in the notorious Nairobi slums, but until we have raised enough money for that project, we will continue to feed, clothe, and educate these destitute children at the existing Hope Academy we built earlier. So if you can’t run, please consider making a donation or sponsoring a runner instead.
Runners and walkers of all ages are invited to participate in this fund-raising event. The 5K course will extend around the mall, but the distance has not been officially measured. We will of course time the event, but that time won’t be official either. Parents may run or walk with their children. Competitive runners may run individually or as a team. The registration fee is $10. Optional tee-shirt ($ 10 more) available at the race site.
Pre-registration is required to participate in this event, but if you can’t sign-up online, print out Race It’s official entry form and bring it to the run along with cash or a check (no plastic please) with an additional $5 for late registration. Registered participants may pick up their numbered bib and tee-shirt from 6-8 pm on Friday the 17th in the food court at Regency.
