Description

Welcome to the first CGF virtual 5k!

What is a virtual 5k?

It's your race ... your place and your pace!

Walk or run at your own pace. Run outside, use a treadmill, walk the dog ..... do it in one go or break the distance up ..... arrange a group event in your area. The purpose of the 5k (3.1 miles) is to get everyone active whilst raising money and bringing awareness to the Child Growth Foundation and growth awareness week.

Who can participate?

Anyone can join in the fun. Whether you're a mum/dad of a child with a growth condition, a child or adult with a growth condition or just a friend or family member showing support, everyone's welcome to participate!

How does the virtual 5k work?

Register free for the CGF virtual 5k - then set yourself up a fundraising page on Just Giving by selecting the event. You can then promote your fundraising efforts and collect sponsorship online. If you'd prefer to download a paper sponsorship form this can be downloaded and then sent to the CGF.

Please also download a race chest sign to personalise and wear while you're doing your 5k then send photographs in to the CGF via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or E-mail so they can be shared on social media.

You can begin walking/running on Sunday 17th September. You don't have to complete the entire 5km in one day. Break it up, stroll with friends, walk alone (be safe) or take the kids out. The objective is to log 5k/3.1 miles by the end of growth awareness week Saturday 23rd September.

What's in it for me?

In addition to earning cool bragging rights you will be helping to raise awareness of the CGF and growth awareness week - and hopefully you'll raise money for the fantastic Child Growth Foundation Charity do they can continue helping families with their amazing advice and support.
