Freedom Farm Animal Sanctuary 2020 – Social Distancing Dash (5K)
What: A virtual 5K, to benefit Freedom Farm Animal Sanctuary (Freedom Farm).
When: Beginning June 14, 2020 through July 5, 2020.
Where: Anywhere you choose!
Why: Raise money for Freedom Farm, a non-profit, 501(c)(3), no kill animal rescue in Middle, TN. The mission of Freedom Farm is to save, foster, and adopt cats and dogs, ultimately placing them in the best possible forever homes!
Like so many individuals and business, non-profits like Freedom Farm, have suffered severe financial hardships in early 2020. Freedom Farm prides itself on giving a second chance to all cats and dogs, including seniors and those with special needs. Because these sweet souls often come with more medical needs, we are in desperate need of donations to continue our mission.
Although we were forced to cancel our “in person” 5K, we are offering this virtual race as an opportunity for our friends, family, runners, walkers, animal lovers, and anybody else to support our mission.
What You Get: A custom designed race medal commemorating the event and the good feeling knowing you are making a positive impact on the lives of carts and dogs in need!
How This Virtual Race Works:
- Go to the Active.com and follow the link to the sign up.
- Sign up for one of two options:
- Option A: Race fee of $25 and you pick up your medal in person. The race coordinator will communicate dates and locations (in Davidson County, TN), where participants can come by and pick them up. We will try to be as accommodating as possible.
- Option B: Race fee of $30 and we will send you your medal in a bubble mailer, to the address you provide at registration. (If you are outside of the contiguous U.S. you will be responsible for additional postage cost)
- You can sign up at any time between June 14, 2020 and July 5, 2020. You can complete the 5K any time after you sign up! You could run it on the day you sign up, or any other day up to Midnight on July 5, 2020.
- After you complete the 5K, email the race coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org and list your name and your 5K time. Medals are ready for the first 100 people who sign up and complete the 5K. Additional medals will be ordered for participants beyond 100.
- Feel free to Walk a 5K, Bike a 5K, or do whatever activity you want to complete to be a part of this event. Our goal is to raise money for the rescue and provide you with a medal and an opportunity to help!
- The first batch of mailed medals will be sent on Saturday, June 20, 2020.
- Additional Information: Please share a picture of you and your furry friend, completing your 5K or other event. The race coordinator would like to put together a video of the Virtual Race, and post it on Freedom Farm’s FB, IG, and YouTube platforms. We would love to get at least one participant from all 50 state. #50StatesforFreedomFarm. I will update our FB page and IG with what states we have and eventually, which ones we still need!
