Race for Racial Justice | Race Window Extended
Factory Sports and the Southern Delaware Alliance for Racial Justice are proud to partner to help bring a awareness and change to the region. The collaboration takes place in the form of a Virtual 5k Run/Walk.
The concept a Virtual 5k Run/Walk is ideal for social distancing and helping to limit large gatherings. It allows participants to partake in the event at a time and place of their own choice. Your neighborhood? The beach? On the boardwalk? All are possible in a Virtual 5k. The rules for the event are simple. Register. Race. You can register by clicking on the link here. Participants will receive a race shirt (pictured below) and a race medal. The shirt is available for purchase as well.
Registration for the event is $25. Race shirts will also be available for sale at a price of $20. If you would like to purchase a shirt please email email@example.com and include NAME, SIZE, CONTACT INFO and QUANTITY. Please note that portions of the proceeds will be used to further to the progress of racial justice in Southern Delaware through the SDARJ. Donations are also welcomed.
