During the week of Earth Day (April 18 - April 26), all registered participants will be able to run or walk the Earth Day 5K at a time and place of their choosing. As opposed to a traditional group racing event, a virtual race will provide the flexibility to practice social distancing while still allowing the opportunity to celebrate Earth Day and support WE ACT.
This exciting event will continue to feature:
- Free WE ACT membership for all registrants!
- WE ACT Earth Day t-shirt
- Awards for 1st Place finisher, top fundraising individual, and top fundraising team
The situation is fluid, and we will continue to monitor guidance from health officials closely leading up to the event. The health and safety of our participants, staff, and community remains our number one priority.
Support for community based organizations is needed now more than ever. By continuing to participate and fundraise for this event, you will be doing more than just celebrating Earth Day's 50th Anniversary. You'll directly support WE ACT's work to develop climate resilience for frontline communities Uptown and across the US.
