Warm Ears, Warm Hearts 5K
What is This?
The Warm Ears, Warm Hearts Foundation is a Florida based nonprofit dedicated to collecting and giving winter clothing to children in need. Started by one lone high school student, Alejandro Morles launched this foundation at the age of 15.
What is the Event?
The #WEWH5K Virtual Race can be completed at any time, from October 18, 2020 to October 25, 2020, in one or more attempts.
The $10 registration fee includes a personalized digital bib, as well as a certificate of completion.
Complete the race in your own neighborhood, anywhere in the world, at your convenience, while observing social distancing guidelines.
Represent your favorite high school! The school with the most participants will win a prize.
Show your team pride on race day by dressing in a WEWH shirt or school gear!
Upon completion of the race, upload proof of completion to the Post-Race Form, which will be emailed along with the digital bib, on or before October 18. Evidence could include a screen shot of your choice of running app (i.e. MapMyRun, Runtastic, Nike Run Club, etc.), your iPhone or Apple Watch – whatever GPS device you choose to use to track and pace your run. The only evidence required is proof of completion of distance – 3.1 miles or 5,000 meters. The certificate of completion will be emailed to each participant, once this evidence is submitted.
For those who may wish to participate in the race competitively, they will have the option to upload proof of their time and pace to the Post-Race Form; this data will be used to select the Fastest Runner, Fastest Walker and Fastest Bike-Rider in each of the seven teams, as well as the Fastest Overall.
Thank you very much for taking time to read this! I hope you consider donating.
