Second Annual Virtual 5K

Join #HSPandPLS Awareness Week August 23-29, 2020

A Creative FUNdraiser Opportunity

Join SPF in a Virtual 5K Run, Walk or Roll! Take off and complete one on your own.  Create a team by recruiting family and friends to participate. Be safe and practice social distancing. Help raise funds by challenging your friends and family to sponsor your time. 

Cannot Run, Walk, or Roll? How about being creative by calculating the time you spend stretching or exercising? Do you work with a physical therapist? All of the time can be converted into a 5K. The average person can walk 3.1 miles in about an hour. Whatever you do for physical activity, count the time toward a Virtual 5K. Please make sure you check with your healthcare professional before doing anything new. Family and friends can help you raise funds by sponsoring your FUNraising 5K activities. Be safe.

We CHALLENGE you in completing your FUNdraiser before, during, or soon after the #HSPandPLS Awareness Week from August 23-29, 2020.  Take pictures, videos, and share your story with the media in your area, on social media using the hashtag #HSPandPLS and email us your videos or photos at so we can shout out your success.  Do not forget to join us during Awareness Week at Noon, CDT to show us your face and your challenge each day on SPF’s Zoom link. FUNdraising can be fun!
